LOS ANGELES

King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

California Science Center
Inquire for Schedule and Tickets

In recognition of the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, the California Science Center is hosting the largest King Tut exhibition in history—shattering previously held records. First in Los Angeles in the 1960s, the exhibit was followed by a tour in the 1970s that broke records at LACMA, drawing more than one million visitors (the museum’s most highly attended show to this day). This most recent exhibit features more than 150 authentic artifacts from the celebrated tomb of King Tutankhamun—who mysteriously died at 19. Along with the artifacts, this exhibit utilizes multimedia, taking visitors on a wholly immersive journey of the pharaoh’s quest for immortality while discovering how scientific analysis of King Tut’s 3,300-year-old mummy has revealed new information about his health and lineage.

Grant Wood: ­American Gothic and Other ­Fables

Whitney Museum of Ameri­can Art
Through June 10, 2018

Perhaps the most recognizable painting in 20th century American Art and an unquestionable icon of Americana is Grant Wood’s American Gothic. While the painting, a double portrait of a farmer holding a pitchfork and a woman (presumed to be his wife), is certainly Wood’s most famous work, “American Gothic and Other Fables” brings together his entire artistic collection. From early arts and crafts decoratives to impressionist oils and his paintings, murals, and book illustrations—this exhibition sheds light on a man who sought to produce harmony and prosperity through his work, despite working during a time of economic upheaval caused by the Great Depression.
