I am with LACMA's electronic outreach team and am pleased to take this opportunity to announce the current exhibition of "Jasper Johns: Numbers" to iVillage's online members!

This is our first effort at outreach to the Parent Soup community and we hope we can provide you with news about current and upcoming exhibits that may be of interest for families living in or visiting the Los Angeles area.

We invite families to explore at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art with the current "Jasper Johns: Numbers" exhibition.

Johns devoted his entire body of work to one subject - numbers, making them into art that kids of all ages can enjoy. Walk the gallery or participate in artist-led workshops to create fun, mixed media works of you and your childrens' favorite numbers, letters or symbols.

We think this exhibit is ideal for Grade school age children and their parents to enjoy together...plus, NexGen membership is FREE for all kids under 18 at LACMA.

Museum Hours: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday noon-8 pm; Friday noon-9 pm; Saturday and Sunday 11 am-8 pm; closed Wednesday. Call (323) 857-6000, or visit our web site at www.lacma.org for more information.

General LACMA Admission: Adults $9; students 18+ with ID and senior citizens 62+ $5; children 17 and under are admitted free. Admission is free the second Tuesday of every month, and evenings after 5 pm.

About LACMA Established as an independent institution in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has assembled a permanent collection that includes approximately 100,000 works of art spanning the history of art from ancient times to the present, making it the premier encyclopedic visual arts museum in the western United States.
