Drawing practices in Los Angeles varied tremendously during the 1960s and 1970s. Culled from LACMA’s collection and select local holdings, Drawing in L.A.: The 1960s and 70s features work by nearly 50 artists who approach drawing in numerous media and styles. Works range in technique from charcoal and ink to collage and xerography, and encompass realism, conceptual drawings and abstraction. The exhibition includes drawings by well known artists, and others who have long been neglected.

The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see the wide variety of drawings that were being made in Los Angeles at an exciting time in the city’s artistic history.
