Hammer Student Association

Formed in 2009, the Hammer Student Association (HSA) is a UCLA student group that creates dynamic programs and content at the Hammer Museum by and for UCLA students. Working in collaboration with Hammer staff and artists, students conceptualize events and workshops, implement design and marketing strategies, and publish the annual interdisciplinary arts journal GRAPHITE.

HSA members have the opportunity to attend internal Hammer meetings and professional luncheons, attend studio visits with contemporary artists, and gain insight into the inner workings of the art world and the museum profession. 

HSA comprises three separate but collaborating committees: Events, Communications, and the GRAPHITE editorial staff. 

How to Apply

Participating in the Hammer Student Association is a serious commitment with incredible rewards for UCLA students from all disciplines. Members produce events, a high-quality publication, and innovative marketing and design each year, and gain unprecedented access to artists, curators, and art world professionals. In order to do all of this, members of HSA commit to attending an association meeting every other Monday evening (twice per month), as well as one additional committee meeting per week. Members also volunteer to work events and conduct on-campus outreach and promotion.
