A gem if you like modern art such as postmodern. Some of the installations use audio visuals and some are interactive. The highlight for me was the staff. They were exceptionally helpful, eager to guide and inform. Most seemed young, possibly UCLA students, and their enthusiasm made the experience that much more rewarding. Location is great, too, as it is in the midst of restaurants and crossroads and easily walkable from UCLA and other areas.
A lot of fun activities for the kids. Went on a field trip with my 10 year old during an event and it was just awesome, this place is rather small but I guess it depends if your going during an event that has fun activities. Have no idea if there's parking but there are buses so yeah, overall it was nice...
Great place to spend a day and enjoy the art of different artists in one place. Staff are really nice and in general it’s a great experience. Park in the flat rate parking and enjoy the area after the museum. The street parking is limited to 2 hours and it’ll be more expensive. There are some good cafes in the neighborhood 😊 I liked this kettle by the way!
The whole ambiente at the Hammer was superb. The courtyard, the use of plants, colors, lights, and space all contribute to a relaxed, happy atmosphere. The Made in LA exhibition concept is a wonderful way to support the arts. Supporting the arts is a wonderful way to illuminate our society and to encourage higher, deeper, continued thinking about our world. It's beauty. It's shortcomings.
I wanted to like it more but frankly some of the exhibits were in my opinion kind of lame. There has to be an objective standard no matter how individualist art needs to be. I also realize that it is without charge and that the purpose is in part to give new artists a start. Viewed in that light it is enjoyable. Building was a little difficult to figure out but quite interesting too.
