What do you see when you look into the tunnel like art piece. Does it make you want to step inside or crawl through. It does give that thought to me. I just want to sit in this tunnel and see what people see or let others see me while looking through one side of it. It is a tool on your eyes, either letting you look past what's there or becoming part of it if you were to step inside the space. It could be just a tunnel and nothing more. This is just the description I think of when I see this picture. The rest of the museum is also great and you should go inside because it's free.
I really enjoy their "disappear here' series! Went here for 2 of the 4 weeks and had a blast. It's free but the drawback is that it gets CRAZY packed and the lines for alcohol = intensely long + expensive. pros and cons right? Haven't been to check out the exhibits but it's awesome to me that they do free events with REAL headliners (tokimonsta, poolside, stones throw fam, etc)
Hammer museum seems to always host super awesome events. I attended at Made in LA free concert that had deep house legends Marques Wyatt and Doc Martin spinning. They literally turned that outdoor courtyard into a dance party. Definitely need to check out the Hammer more often!
One of the nicer museums in Los Angeles, with constant updates to exhibits and installations; whether historical or modern contemporary. It's a stones throw from UCLA and helps demarcate the Westwood village. Their private collection of artworks holds a lot of classical American art. If you're hungry, I suggest going to Damon & Pythias:Food for the Gods, which is a few blocks north, west. They have the best garlic curly fries.
Founded by Armand Hammer, former Chairman of Occidental Petroleum, the museum is now administered and operated by UCLA. Its exhibitions present contemporary and historical work in all media. Were it not located in a city containing the Huntington, the Norton Simon, the Getty, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Hammer Museum would warrant greater attention.
The best museum in Westwood. Armand Hammer always has excellent exhibits and often hosts free performances (art, music etc)
