The Hammer Museum feels like it has always flown under the radar for us; next to cultural giants like LACMA and the Getty, it didn’t capture our imaginations the same way a visit to see Metropolis II live would! (Although, this is less a reflection of the museum itself and more one of our family – getting the kids to any museum when they were younger was a challenge.) That being said, now that we are “all grown up” we’ve come to appreciate the sleeping giant that is the Hammer (traffic aside), especially their annual Made in LA exhibit!
This weekend, the Museum is kicking off their fall exhibitions UH-OH: Francis Stark 1991-2015 and The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris with after-hours access, a DJ, and a gif photobooth(!!!). There will also be cash bars serving wine, beer and cocktails, and participating food trucks will be donating 10% of proceeds to the Hammer.
