Hammergram: October 2014

October 30, 2014

It’s the end of the month, so it’s time for Hammergram! We are fascinated by the photos our visitors take of the objects and spaces at the Hammer. That’s why we decided to launch Hammergram–a monthly round-up of our favorite visitor photos–in the hopes that they will inspire you to share your own Hammer experience with us!

The Hammer Museum welcomes visitors to take non-flash, personal-use photography (except where noted). Share your images with us by tagging @hammer_museum or #hammermuseum on Instagram or Twitter, and you could be featured in the next Hammergram!

4. @__ttn's caption to this photo from our Robert Heinecken show inspires us:

"You know, I was taking to a lady earlier this afternoon while I was looking at this piece. And I asked her, 'What do you think it means? I don't understand it.' And she said to me, 'sometimes you don't have to.'" —Human of LA that I met today
