I went and I never found the tour =( I asked LACMA docents if they knew where this tour met and they said no that they do not support outside tours such as this one. I was very disappointed.

This is a wonderful introduction to modern art. The tour is only an hour long but givea good overall perspective of the origins of modern art and where contemporary art is headed currently.

Great way to learn about definition of modern and contemporary art. Enjoyed the education. Recommend this experience. And, if you are an LA county resident with ID and go to LACMA after 5:00pm admission is FREE.

The Quick Culture guides will take you from Picasso to Pollock to Koons at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM). Through selected artwork, they will explain the varied inspirations behind modern art and give you their take on today’s contemporary art scene. You might still not get it—- but they will help you to understand why.
