For over a decade, the Poetry Series has concluded its annual offerings at the end of the academic year with a reading by several UCLA students whose work has won awards in contests sponsored either by the Department of English or by a statewide consortium of universities.
This series of readings is organized and hosted by Stephen Yenser, poet and professor at UCLA and author of A Boundless Field: American Poetry at Large and Blue Guide.
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets for the Annex are required and available at the Box Office one hour before each program. Early arrival is recommended. Tickets are available one per person on a first come, first served basis. As a benefit for their support, members enjoy priority ticketing for programs in the Annex, subject to availability.
Parking is available under the museum for a flat rate of $3 after 6PM.
Poetry is supported, in part, by the UCLA Department of English and Friends of English.
Public programs are made possible by Hammer Members and the generosity of Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and an anonymous donor.
