Best clear a space on the refrigerator.
Because you can never remember if that one place with the sculptures you like is free every other Tuesday, or after 6 p.m. on Friday. There are too many numbers and codes and birthdays in all of our heads, and we need assistance everywhere we can get it.
MOCA tipped us to this handy museum-y chart that LA Magazine has done up. The roster lists several top Southern California institutions, and when they're free, and if they're always free (some places are).
Click on through. You'll ultimately get to a pdf, which will have little color-coded circles. Handy. Also, a good Orange County presence as well. The wonderful Orange County Museum of Art is free on the second Sunday of the month, if you're wondering.
Thanks, LA Magazine. No more mixing up Mondays and Tuesdays 5 to 7 p.m, or was it 8 p.m, at our favorite culture spot.
