Take a trip to LACMA to see the newly reinstalled Latin American Galleries. While the museum in the past has offered an impressive display of art; the new galleries offer a glimpse at art from Spanish Colonial to Modern to the Contemporary. Until now, there were many pieces that were not yet made available to the public.
The re-installation of the galleries is a permanent collection that can be seen every day of the week. Visitors to the gallery begin their journey by starting in the Ancient galleries and traverse through time as they see works from the Colonial to the Postwar and Modern periods.
The museum, through the years, has taken impressive steps to obtain over 50 colonial works and also an expansive collection of modern Mexican silver jewelry from Taxco. There are also works from 20th century post-war artists from Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and Uruguay that showcase the influence of geometric abstraction.
The galleries have been completely redesigned and repainted with cases designed by artist Jorge Prado.
