Family Day: Exploring Architecture

Sunday Sep 8, 2013 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Inspired by architect A. Quincy Jones’s versatile professional practice, the third annual Family Day at the Hammer invites kids, parents, and friends to experience architecture in new, exciting ways on the closing day of A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living. Artist and architect-led activities introduce young people to scale, material, light, the urban landscape of Los Angeles, and much more. Free snacks courtesy of Whole Foods Westwood, plus kid-friendly meals available for purchase at Ammo. Free, and all ages are welcome! Event runs from 10AM–2PM.
