Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

Light the Barricades is a series of three installations by Candy Chang and James A. Reeves that reimagines the wall as a site for contemplating our inner obstructions.

Art has always had a home at the Natural History Museum, which when it opened in 1913, was named the Los Angeles County Museum of History, Science, and Art. In recent years, the museum has displayed exhibitions of art, and it is fitting, then, that we have invited visitors to have another thought-provoking art experience in Exposition Park.

Light the Barricades is a series of three installations by Candy Chang and James A. Reeves that reimagines the wall as a site for contemplating our inner obstructions.

Located at Grand Park, the Annenberg Community Beach House, and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, all three installations will become part of W|ALLS: Defend, Divide, and the Divine at the Annenberg Space for Photography. The exhibit—on view October 5 through December 29, 2019—examines the historical use and artistic treatment of walls over centuries.
