Eye Art at a Rare Wednesday Open Day, at LACMA

Need to soak in art on the Miracle Mile? Here's your midweek chance.

What to Know

  • Wednesday, Jan. 2, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Regular admission applies
  • Next free LACMA day: Jan. 21, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Mondays get a bad rap, or at least a widely known reputation, for being the day when an attraction must shutter, all to spiffy up after a busy weekend and prepare for another week.

But that's not the case at the Los Angeles Museum of Art, on the Miracle Mile, where Wednesday has long been its gate's-are-locked moment to take a breather, do what needs to be done, and to prepare for another six days of receiving art-loving guests.

Wednesday, in short, is needed to dust those frames, proverbially and not.

Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019 will be different, however: LACMA is open, a rare midweek event for the mid-city museum, and while admission is not free, much will be gained by a visit.

Why do we make such a lofty claim? Well, in a short word, art. Or, to put it like LACMA puts it on its site, "(s)tart 2019 off with art!"

That's a solid plan. As solid? Knowing the hours: The museum will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 in the evening.
