UMMA After Hours

Drop in during this free community event to browse the galleries and enjoy new special exhibitions including: new and recent work by Los Angeles-based contemporary photographer Catherine Opie; Whistler prints and South Asian folk art donated to UMMA from the private collection of Nesta and Walter Spink; new photography and a site-specific sculptural installation by artist and architect Catie Newell; 23 fantastical photographs from UMMA’s collection in Manuel Álvarez Bravo: Mexico’s Poet of Light; conceptual drawings by architect Mira Henry; and the six-minute video Spiderman by L.A.-based artist Mark Bradford. Enjoy live music performed by The Heather Black Project. Led by vocalist Heather Schwartz, this versatile ensemble puts an original spin on vintage jazz and incorporates modern elements of R&B, soul, and hip-hop. Curators’ conversations and light refreshments round out the event.
