Things to do in Little Holmby: Hammer Museum
"A hot spot for contemporary art and ideas and a venue for serious exploration of overlooked historical subjects."
"The hippest and most culturally relevant institution in town.”
The Hammer Museum, located in Westwood Village is truly one of a kind.
Founded in 1990 by the entrepreneur-industrialist Armand Hammer to house his personal art collection, the museum has since expanded its scope to become so much more. In addition to critically acclaimed exhibitions of contemporary and historical work in all media of the visual arts, the Hammer also hosts over 300 programs throughout the year. Visitors can participate in film screenings, performances, lectures, readings, and panel discussions on current social issues. And since 2010, the Hammer has partnered with the radio station KCRW to host its very popular annual outdoor summer concert series.
Added bonus: The museum's collections, exhibitions, and programs are completely FREE to all visitors.
