Description

Located on the UCLA campus in Westwood, The Hammer, as it is commonly called, originally opened in 1990 with an extensive collection of fine art featuring painters such as Monet and Rembrandt. In 2007, the Hammer condensed its collection to its very best pieces and recreated itself to feature the most 'cutting-edge' of contemporary art. Now the museum is filled not just with classic paintings but features poetry readings, political debates, celebrity events and late-night DJ parties that are free to students and young artists. The Hammer Project brings up-and-coming artists to center stage featuring them in solo exhibitions, which supports the Hammer's new image as a leader in contemporary art. Group tours can be arranged by calling or emailing in advance.
