This Week at the CMA: CMA’s 100th Birthday, Parade the Circle and More

 Check out these five must-attend events this week at the CMA!

 
Mon, 6/6, 10:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
Members will enjoy a red-carpet entrance, behind-the-scenes access, tours inspired by key figures in the museum’s past, gallery talks, musical performances, and ice cream. Additionally, both Studio Play, and the renovated Japanese and Korean galleries will be open to all CMA members for the first time.
 
As its title indicates, this eight-panel folding screen was commissioned by Crown Prince Hyomyeong (1809-1830) to celebrate the 40th birthday and 30th year of the reign of his father, King Sunjo. This work is the earliest and one of the finest surviving examples featuring 19th-century Joseon court-sponsored screens. A generous loan from the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea, this piece will be on view through October 9, 2016. 
 

Tues, 6/7, 10:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
Visitors are invited to enjoy special programs, tours, live music, free entry to the centennial exhibition Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt (no advance ticket reservations), and CMA-inspired cake and ice cream. Guests will also be able to experience both Studio Play, and the renovated Japanese and Korean galleries will be open to the public for the first time. 

Film: Hockney
Wed, 6/8 and Fri, 6/10
This Wed, 6/8 and Fri 6/10 from 7:00-8:55 p.m., CMA presents the film Hockney. In this revealing, new documentary directed by Randall Wright, gay British painter, printmaker, and photographer David Hockney looks back over his colorful, influential career—from his Pop art beginnings to the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and his life in both England and California.
