Advance tickets for LBMA and LBMA Downtown will be made available online from Monday, March 22.


Shortly before the mandated closure in March 2020, the Long Beach Museum of Art celebrated 70 years of collecting, exhibiting and championing visual arts with two permanent collection shows: CA Designed 1955 and Decade by Decade: Women Artists of California. These exhibitions will continue on view through mid-May 2021. LBMA Downtown will open with works by Southern California women artists Christine Nguyen, Elyse Pignolet and Fran Siegel in Space as Presence.
