Ready to get your August started… free-museum-style? This week kicks off the last full month of the summer with a pair free Friday shindigs at two of the county’s most cherished institutions.
First up, on August 4, the California African American Museum celebrates their latest exhibition openings by throwing a DJ dance party with an assist from KCRW. Expect food trucks, a beer garden, and of course free gallery access.
If you’re in more of a Mid-Wilshire mood, you can swing over to the La Brea Tar Pits that same evening for a summer nights celebration featuring DJ spun tunes from the Beat Junkie Institute of Sound and Ladies of Sound, a special discussion on saber tooth tigers, and free entrance to the museum.
