Family Day: A Recap
Families made a statement last Saturday here at the Hammer: art-making, dancing and discovery are for EVERYONE. We welcomed over 1,600 visitors to this year’s Family Day: Community Studio, a program celebrating the risk-taking and discovery that takes place in the artist’s studio.
Improvising at Family Day
When Olivia Fales, academic programs assistant at the Hammer, asked me for leads on Improv Artists for an upcoming Family Day, I blurted “ME, my team!” There was no hesitation, no thinking twice. The default for good improvisers is “yes, and.” A Museum Educator for ten years and improviser for four, I have long wished for a way to blend my two loves but didn’t quite know how. Being on a team with the best group of players imaginable, I knew it would be not only be possible, but fun to tackle.
