Centrally located between the beach and downtown Los Angeles, LACMA (www.lacma.org) features artwork covering the expanse of art history—from ancient to contemporary—and the globe.

Since its inception in 1965, LACMA has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography and represent Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today, the museum features particularly strong collections of Asian, Latin American, European, and American art, as well as a contemporary museum on its campus.
