[event] “LA as LAB” – Innovation in Arts & Culture 3/28/15



Living in Los Angeles, I’ve realized just what a hotbed of arts and cultural innovation.  If you look beyond Hollywood, you’ll find tech hubs like Silicon Beach, microhoods like the Arts District, and great venues like the Music Center.

For those in the area looking to expand your horizons, it’s worth a short trek eastward for this conference hosted by the Arts Management and Museum Studies programs at Claremont Graduate University on March 28th, 2015.

The conference will feature cutting edge models and projects in the arts sector in Los Angeles, stimulating discussion on how Los Angeles arts and cultural organizations are innovating in the field, transforming theory into practice.

Free arts & culture, every day in LA!

As a newbie to LA and an avid art lover (on a budget), I made it a mission to track down all the free museum days.

Luckily, I found an incredibly helpful chart that did all the work for me (thanks to NortonSimon.org). You’ll find a good variety of venues, small and large, that offer no-cost or discounted admission.

*Note that Thursdays are your best bet.

This recent round of heatwaves gave me the perfect incentive to spend quality time indoors.  So far, I’ve been to the LACMA, the Paley Center, the Getty Center, and Huntington. And I can’t wait to see them all!
