John V. Tunney Bridge over the Hammer Courtyard

Opening in February 2015 at the Hammer Museum, the John V. Tunney Bridge will connect the upper level galleries over the Hammer Courtyard. The pedestrian bridge will improve visitors’ experience by connecting the galleries on the east and west sides of the building. Designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture, the bridge is named in honor of John V. Tunney, longtime Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Hammer Museum. The Construction of the bridge is made possible through the generosity of donors and friends.
