Ten Outdoor Sculptures at LACMA

LACMA is unique amongst urban museums, set in a 23-acre park adjacent to the La Brea Tar Pits, yet located in the center of the city. An abundance of outdoor space and nearly year-round temperate weather make the museum's campus an ideal setting for monumental works of outdoor sculpture. Check out this list of just ten of the many works on view!
