LACMA is celebrating its 50th anniversary with an exhibition of all of its birthday gifts on display—and since it's LACMA, that means it's an amazing art exhibition. More than 25 generous donors chose to wish LACMA a happy birthday with a bequest of artwork. The result is an exhibition of wildly different works, from holograms designed by Bruce Nauman to surf pioneer Duke Kahanamoku's longboard. It's also the first public look at the paintings and sculptures from A. Jerrold Perenchio's collection, which were part of the largest gift in LACMA history, with famous works by Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Vuillard, among others.

At the time we posted this event, no end date for the exhibition had been designated. Please check LACMA's website to make sure it is still ongoing when you plan your trip.
