Artists Visits and LACMA Acquisitions Committee (AHAN)

March 30, 2015

LSS Art Advisory has had a busy and exciting first quarter of 2015. Laura Smith Sweeney, LSS Art Advisory Principal and Founder, attended many gallery openings and art fairs in the new year. Laura also dedicated time to meeting with artists in their studios, including two days of visits in February for Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s (LACMA)‘s Art Here and Now: Studio Forum (AHAN) group. This group of philanthropists, collectors, and enthusiasts, led by LACMA curators Rita Gonzalez and Christine Kim, fund acquisitions of emerging contemporary Los Angeles artists to the LACMA collection. Once AHAN’s choices are made public by the museum, we will be sure to update Laura’s Notebook with the exciting news. Here are a couple of Laura’s studio visits:
