The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) brings free interactive art and film programming to Redlands this summer through its new outreach initiative LACMA9 Art + Film Lab, which kicks off at the University of Redlands today through July 7.
The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is a participatory and interactive space that provides an opportunity for the public to learn and experiment with art and film making processes. LACMA9 Art + Film Lab will bring a large swath of interactive art and film programming to nine communities in Southern California.
The LACMA9 initiative offers unique perspectives about community, design and space through collaborations with artists Jorge Pardo and Nicole Miller. The art and film lab was designed by artist Jorge Pardo. The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is supported by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.
The LACMA 9 programming, all of which is free to the public, includes an opening night celebration, hands-on art and filmmaking workshops, weekly outdoor film screenings and the gathering of oral histories from community members. At the conclusion of the five-week residency, residents of Redlands will be invited to a community day where visitors will receive free admission to LACMA on Oct. 13.
The Redlands Art + Film Lab is near the corner of East Brockton Avenue and University Street, at 1202 E. Brockton Ave. on the University of Redlands campus.
The opening night party is 6 to 10 p.m. today. Live music starts at 7 p.m., and screening starts at 8.
