Libros Schmibros Book Club: The Death and Life of Great American Cities

  • to This is a past program

Libros Schmibros continues its public engagement at the Hammer with a monthly book club led by co-directors David Kipen and Colleen Jaurretche.

Jane Jacobs changed the way we think about urban life, championing neighborhood shopkeepers over department stores, walkable streets over soulless boulevards.

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.

The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement Program was initiated with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.

Libros Schmibros is a project of the Pasadena Artist Council’s EMERGE fiscal sponsorship program.
