The Los Angeles County Museum of Art or, as I affectionately call it, um, “LACMA,” is turning 40 this year. And the best part is that WE get prezzies: a late-night party as well as four days of free admission to the museum from March 30 to April 2!

Kicking off the birthday weekend is a late-night bash (Thursday, March 30 7pm-3am) where not only will there be wall-to-wall art, but cocktails, birthday cupcakes and partying cultured Angelenos.

And if that’s still not enough enticement for you, there will also be live performances by N’dambi and Cava, DJ Suckapunch and The Internationalist; screenings of that Academy Award winning movie Crash; and even live painting and interactive art murals by EDER.

Like I said, it’s free to get in but you have to RSVP for the shindig to guarantee “priority admission.” You can’t reserve a bunch of tickets as it’s just per person, so tell your friends to get off their duff and respondez, s’il vous plait. Toute de suite while there are still spots available._

Late-night bash of 2004 looked like a lot of fun and I’m sure this landmark’s momentous birthday will just be more so. After all, an Angeleno actually celebrating turning 40 is a sight we don’t see very often in our town.
