Large-Scale Arts Outreach and Education Program Good News for Los Angeles

In other museum innovation news, the Los Angeles County Art Museum in conjunction with the LA Unified School District has begun a $1-million-a-year initiative, LACMA On-Site, to provide intensive six-lesson art sequences for 18 selected elementary and middle schools in the LA-area over the course of the next four years. Museum officials believe that there are no other museum programs like this one at this scale in the country. This is good news in an era when arts education in public schools has been marginalized.
