LACMA Turns 50

Hosted by

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art launched its 50th Anniversary Celebration with a star-studded gala this past weekend. The rich and famous had a chance to wander through a new show called 50 for 50: Gifts on the Occasion of LACMA’s Anniversary. There were newly donated works by big names like Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Warhol. We take a look back at the museum’s humble beginnings.
