The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Four Southern California Institutions Embark on Multi­ Year Partnership Featuring LACMA's Collection
A major grant from the Art Bridges+ Terra Foundation Initiative supports a dynamic exhibition partnership through 2024

Lancaster, CA – The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pleased to announce Local Access, a partnership with four Southern California institutions made possible by a grant of nearly $2 million from the nationwide Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative. Established in 2018, Art Bridges and the Terra Foundation for American Art created the Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative (ABTFI) to expand access to American art across the United States. LACMA is the first institution in the Western United States to receive a grant from Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative.

Local Access will bring special exhibitions drawn from LACMA's collection to institutions in greater Southern California: Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH); Riverside Art Museum (RAM); Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College (VPAM); and California State University, Northridge, Art Galleries. Over the next several years, each partner will present up to three exhibitions that reframe and broaden traditional ideas about American art. This unprecedented partnership is centered on sharing collections and museum resources to establish a new model for accessible and inclusive community engagement. The exhibitions are the result of a years-long exchange and collaboration among the staffs of the institutions.
