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. Participating artists include: Liz Craft, Tony de los Reyes, Sam Durant, FriendsWithYou, Francesca Gabbiani, Piero Golia, Aiko Hachisuka, Drew Heitzler, Alex Hubbard, Shio Kusaka, Liz Larner, Nathan Mabry, Tala Madani, Dash Manley, Nicole Miller, Pentti Monkkonen, Ivan Morley, Carter Mull, Anthony Pearson, Ana Prvacki, Eddie Ruscha, Jim Shaw, John Umbanhowar, Kaari Upson, Tobjorn Vejvi, Marnie Weber and DJ Liza Richardson.
There were Benefit Limited Edition Temporary Tattoos for purchase at the event this year by John Baldessari, Friedrich Kunath, Dave Muller, Laura Owens and Raymond Pettibon.
K.A.M.P. also celebrates reading with Story Time in one of its galleries. Celebrity guests engage families as they read from their favorite children’s books and share exciting stories. This year’s book readers include: Jessica Alba, Armie Hammer, Conan O’Brien, Molly Sims and Jeanne Tripplehorn.
