Soundings: Bells at the Hammer
The Hammer Museum and Machine Project invite the public to participate in a day-long sound installation, everyone in a place, by composer Chris Kallmyer. All visitors will be issued a small bell, which they can wear as they move through the galleries, courtyard, lobby, and other public spaces. Museum admission will be free to all participants. Additional bell related sound pieces will take place throughout the day, including circulating ice cream carts, animatronic Santa bells in the museum’s coatroom, and an African bell ensemble.
