Case Study

A key feature of LACMA’s outreach strategy is to offer programs in schools, libraries and other community sites. For over a decade, LACMA has dedicated considerable funds and staff to initiatives that reduce both geographic and socio-cultural distance (cultural norms, affinities, perceptions and resources) that prevent low income and communities of color from utilizing the museum. From a gallery located within an elementary school to a satellite museum and storage space, LACMA’s off-site initiatives emphasize accessibility and inclusivity and have resulted in greater diversity. Discover LACMA’s most innovative projects and best practices gleaned from extensive community-based work.
