Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Pasadena Art Alliance

Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles’ uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes over 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art.

Support will go towards “Beyond Bling,” an exhibition showcasing an extraordinary assemblage of contemporary studio jewelry from the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.  The exhibition, which features selections from the gift of Lois and Bob Boardman, explores the use of nontraditional materials and techniques, the ways jewelry can communicate personal or political messages, and the medium’s potential to shock and delight.  The show will run from October 2, 2016 through February 5, 2017.
