Japanese American National Museum
The Japanese American National Museum will celebrate the diverse mix of cultures that make up Los Angeles with a JANM Free Family Day on November 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the museum and its “We Love LA” Family Day activities—including crafts, story time, a dance workshop, and a musical performance—is free and all ages are welcome.
“We Love LA” is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo, currently on view as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a Getty-led initiative exploring Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. The presenting sponsor of PST: LA/LA is Bank of America. Three of the craft activities are directly inspired by artworks by Erica Kamanishi, Yuriko Rojas Moriyama, Shizu Saldamando, and Eduardo Tokeshi in Transpacific Borderlands. In addition, one of the exhibiting artists, Ichiro Irie, will lead a mixed media workshop four times over the course of the day.
