Libros Schmibros Book Club
Libros Schmibros continues its engagement at the Hammer with a monthly book club led by co-directors David Kipen and Colleen Jaurretche. Convenings focus on books related to the museum’s exhibitions and programs.
William McClung’s Landscapes of Desire: Anglo Mythologies of Los Angeles invites spirited discussion on every page, on such topics as Helen Hunt Jackson’s Ramona and David Hockney’s Hancock St., West Hollywood.
In conjunction with the upcoming Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. and the Hammer’s exhibition The Architecture of A. Quincy Jones.
Parking is available under the museum for $3 for 3 hours.
Part of the curatorial department, the Public Engagement program collaborates with artists to develop and present works that create an exchange among the artist, the museum, and the visitor. Enacted both inside and outside the galleries, Public Engagement projects range from re-envisioned security guard uniforms to library and orchestra residencies. Public Engagement was established in 2009 thanks to a James Irvine Foundation Arts Innovation Fund grant.
