#AskACurator Day 2014

September 4, 2014

What's it like to be a curator? How do you decide what to display? Just how did you get a car into the lobby for Made in L.A. 2014?

Have you had a burning question for one of our curators? Now is your chance to ask! The Hammer is excited to once again be among 300+ museums from 34 countries participating in #AskACurator Day on Wednesday, September 17!

Hammer curatorial staff will be available to answer your questions from 10AM to 2PM PDT. Tweet your questions to @hammer_museum and make sure to use the #AskACurator hashtag. We can't wait to hear from you!
