REDLANDS, May xx, 2013– The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) brings FREE interactive art and film programming to the community this summer through its new outreach initiative LACMA9 Art + Film Lab, which kicks off at the University of Redlands from Friday, June 7- Sunday, July 7. The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is a participatory and interactive space that provides an opportunity for the public to learn and experiment with art and film making processes. LACMA9 Art + Film Lab will bring a large swath of interactive art and film programming to nine communities in Southern California.

The LACMA9 initiative offers unique perspectives about community, design, and space through collaborations with artists Jorge Pardo and Nicole Miller. The art and film lab was designed by artist Jorge Pardo. The LACMA9 Art + Film Lab is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.

The LACMA 9 programming, all of which is free to the public, includes an opening night celebration, hands-on art and filmmaking workshops, weekly outdoor film screenings and the gathering of oral histories from community members.
