On May 18, 2014, the Hammer Museum hosted its fifth annual K.A.M.P. (Kids’ Art Museum Project), an event imagined by artists for children of all ages. Painters, sculptors, architects, and creative types of all kinds led inventive hands-on workshops in the carefree atmosphere of the Hammer Museum courtyard. View photos from the event here.

All K.A.M.P. proceeds support the Museum’s growing Hammer Kids Programming.

Unlike other family events, K.A.M.P. provides extraordinary access and experiences for kids and their families with renowned Los Angeles artists, many of whom have been the subject of exhibitions at the Hammer Museum or are represented in the Hammer Contemporary Art Collection.
