Nowruz (Iranian New Year) is upon us and LACMA has partnered with Farhang Foundation to host the event on March 17. The celebration includes movies (ticketed), music, dancing and story-telling. They also set up a Haft-Seen, which is a traditional New Year’s display featuring “The Seven S’s” based on the letter ‘seen’ in the Persian alphabet 
The Haft Seen items are:
Sabzeh - (Persian: سبزه‎)-wheat, barley, mung bean or lentil sprouts growing in a dish - symbolising rebirth
Samanu - (Persian: سمنو‎)-sweet pudding made from wheat germ - symbolising affluence
Senjed - (Persian: سنجد‎)-dried oleaster fruit - symbolising love
Sir - (Persian: سیر‎)- garlic - symbolising medicine
Sib - (Persian: سیب‎)- apples - symbolising beauty and health
Somāq - (Persian: سماق‎)sumac fruit - symbolising (the color of) sunrise
Serkeh - (Persian: سرکه‎) - vinegar - symbolising old-age and patience
This year, the LA Marathon is held the same day, so be sure to check for street closures (PDF) especially if you’re coming from north of Santa Monica Blvd. You can visit LACMA for more information on times and ticket information.
