Join a LACMA docent for a tour of Eternal Medium: Seeing the World in Stone.
Eternal Medium brings together diverse works that utilize the natural features of striking stones, and displays them alongside comparative examples in other media. The exhibition invites visitors to look for themselves as well as consider the works in their wider visual contexts. What individuals see in stone depends on their culture, unique experiences, and imagination. We can get closer to what people in the past saw by also looking at these ingenious creations alongside other examples of art from the same time and place.
