Join the Chrysler Museum of Art as they celebrate Alma W. Thomas: Everything Is Beautiful with a Chrysler Movie Night. Alma Thomas’s love for her community and gardens in the midst of racial and social injustice is echoed in The Garden.

The film introduces viewers to the South Central Farm, a 14-acre community garden that was established in the ruins of the L.A. riots in 1992. After the lush garden thrived for a decade, the urban farmers were notified that they were being evicted. In a back-room deal, the city of Los Angeles sold the space back to the developer who originally owned it. The farmers mobilized to prevent the onslaught of bulldozers in an attempt to save their beautiful land and the sustainable life it provided.

Free. Tickets required. Space is limited.

For the safety of everyone in the community, all visitors age 3 and up are required to wear a face mask in the Museum and Glass Studio, regardless of vaccination status. The Chyrsler Museum of Art asks that you please wear a mask covering the nose and mouth at all times during your visit. Masks will not be required outdoors.
