Due to the impending closing of Libros Schmibros at the Hammer, the shop is no longer accepting book donations.
Join us for a residency with David Kipen's Boyle Heights lending library/used-book shop, Libros Schmibros, now continuing through November 5.
Please bring back any borrowed books to the museum, and watch the Libros Schmibros blog and Facebook page for updates on its move to 1711 Mariachi Plaza de Los Angeles, corner of 1st and Boyle.
The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program seeks to create a new kind of interactive museum: an artist-driven visitor engagement program that encourages contact among visitors, artists, and Museum staff, and activates spaces in imaginative ways.
Public Engagement and AIR were established in 2009 thanks to a James Irvine Foundation Arts Innovation Fund grant. Via AIR, artists examine and respond to fundamental museum issues related to the visitor experience in an attempt to deepen the Hammer’s connection with its guests.
Libros Schmibros is a fiscally sponsored project of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE Program.
