‘Jelly’s Last Jam,’ an expert’s guide to the Getty and the L.A. culture kicking off Memorial Day weekend

Can you feel that? It’s the warm, electric vibes of L.A. culture waking up for a first taste of summer weather, and preparing for a season of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, museum visits and random calls from family and friends out-of-state who are inviting themselves to head west and couch surf at your place “for a few days.” Luckily you’ll know where to go to show ‘em a good time and hopefully have one yourself with this week’s guide to the best culture L.A. has to offer along with some updates from the arts scene.

1. California African American Museum reopens
After a long, long closure for deferred maintenance and storm-related building repairs, CAAM is welcoming visitors again this week. You can see the Simone Leigh show that we touted last week, as well as “Paula Wilson: Toward the Sky’s Back Door” (and hear that artist speak June 13). CAAM’s reopening adds to the energy of Exposition Park, where the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is taking shape, the Space Shuttle Endeavour is getting its new home at the California Science Center, and Frederick Fisher & Partners is giving the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County a facelift. If you haven’t been in a while, CAAM’s return is a great motivator to get back. Also, it’s free.
Open Tuesdays-Sundays. Parking entrance at 39th and Figueroa streets, L.A.
