Indoor museums throughout Southern California have been closed since March, prompting the institutions that help form the bedrock of cultural life in LA to find new ways to engage their community.
While outdoor installations like LACMA’s “Urban Light” and “Levitated Mass” have largely stayed open, most museums’ primary ways of engaging visitors—indoor galleries and exhibitions— have been closed. But some museums have shifted to showcase exhibitions virtually, and hosted numerous events online. How are local institutions getting through the COVID-19 pandemic, and what will all this mean for the future of LA’s cultural institutions?
