Ah, the LACMA Store … It is truly a thing of beauty! It's also our Museum Store of the Month for March 2022! And it just so happens that we're posting this little love-letter on the opening weekend of the blockbuster show, Barbara Kruger: Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You, which itself just so happens to bring with it one of the coolest exhibition catalogs of the year (and maybe the decade), co-published by DelMonico Books and LACMA and designed by IN-FO.CO (aka Inventory Form & Content.)
If you're in Los Angeles, we recommend a visit to the museum—and the LACMA Store—ASAP. Not only will you find the Kruger exhibition catalog, but there's all sorts of cool exhibition-related merch, from totes to T-shirts.
And maybe stay a little longer than you meant to, so you can properly browse the store's thoughtfully curated selection of books, jewelry, gift items and one-of-a-kind Los Angeles-based designs as well as children's books and toys—all in line with the museum's mission: to serve the public through the collection, conservation, exhibition, and interpretation of significant works of art from a broad range of cultures and historical periods, and through the translation of these collections into meaningful educational, aesthetic, intellectual, and cultural experiences for the widest array of audiences.
We ❤️ a museum store that ❤️s books! Props to LACMA and the LACMA Store for putting books front and center!
Below are a few more photos of the museum and the LACMA Store, located in the Resnick Pavillion, 5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles.
