CHARLES WHITE AT LACMA

The magnificent Charles White retrospective is up for one more month at LACMA, the last stop of its national tour.

In addition to the beautifully designed exhibition in the museum’s Resnick Pavilion, this weekend LACMA is presenting a pristine 35mm screening of ANNA LUCASTA—the 1958 film starring Eartha Kitt and Sammy Davis Jr., featuring paintings by White.

And in June there will be a final Artist Walkthrough, with muralist and Charles White student Kent Twitchell.
