LACMA Muse's Fourteenth Annual Muse 'til Midnight Event

LACMA Muse invites you to its fourteenth annual Muse ‘til Midnight event for an evening of art, live music, food, and drinks to celebrate the museum’s two exhibitions, "Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins" and "Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape". This year’s event is particularly inspired by Manly Pursuits and will feature an atmosphere to match Eakins’ late nineteenth-century paintings. In this vein, Muse 'til Midnight will be presented in two acts:

Act 1: The Eakins Arena
8:15 to 10:30pm: LATCC
Sports and vaudeville collide in the Los Angeles Times Central Court!

After hours access to Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins and Catherine
Opie: Figure and Landscape
Live music by Dusty Rhodes and the River Band
Large scale video projections
Vaudeville performers, Opie-inspired photo stations, complimentary cocktails, and more!

Act 2: The Steampunk Saloon
10:00pm to 12:00am: LACMA West Penthouse
The fashion of yesterday meets the technology of tomorrow five floors up in the LACMA West Penthouse. Bust out your goggles and parasols to enjoy...

Live performance by The Unextraordinary Gentlemen
Steampunk inspired art, crafts, and fashion; featuring ensembles by Clockwork Couture
DJ spinning the finest in early-century vinyl with a modern twist
Moustache contest (homegrown and homemade), complimentary cocktails, and more!

Tickets are $25 for Muse members and $40 for the general public.

Tickets can be purchased at, at any of LACMA’s Welcome Centers, or by telephone at 323 857-6010. Advance purchase is recommended, as the event is expected to sell out quickly.
