Welcome in the summer season with an after-hours celebration at the County Museum this weekend when LACMA Muse presents International Museum Night, Saturday, May 18, from 8–11 pm.

Muse is LACMA’s premier membership group for art enthusiasts in their 20s and 30s, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in if you’re a bit older and want to get in on the screenings, parties and social happenings that Muse pulls together during the year. The kick off to this Muse season will focus on everything international at LACMA and include:

DISCOVER: “LACMA Exhibitions Around the World”—this lecture follows California Design to Tokyo, Fashioning Fashioning to Paris, and more.

LEARN: “Classic Maya”—a gallery talk that takes a close look at heiroglyphic texts describing everything from creation to chocolate.

DISCUSS: “The Art of Looking”—explore the unique medium of printmaking through the work of Japanese printmaker Katsushika Hokusai and American printer Jack Stauffacher.

LISTEN: KCRW DJ Marion Hodges will spin eclectic mix of indie pop, soul, and gentle beats from points all around the world.

TASTE: Visit two tasting stations inspired by current exhibitions, Japanese Prints: Hokusai at LACMA and Henri Matisse: La Gerbe.

EXPLORE: The European, American, Latin American, Japanese, Chinese, Islamic, Greek and Roman galleries will be open until 11 pm.

Tickets are $20 for LACMA members and $35 general admission, and include two complimentary drinks for Muse members. Cash bar.
