Libros Schmibros Book Club: The Odyssey
In conjunction with the L.A. Public Library’s citywide exploration of The Odyssey, the club reads the first chapter of both Homer’s epic and James Joyce’s epoch-making update, Ulysses.
Part of the curatorial department, the Public Engagement program collaborates with artists to develop and present works that create an exchange with the institution and with visitors. Enacted both inside and outside the galleries, Public Engagement projects range from re-envisioned security guard uniforms to library and orchestra residencies. The Hammer Museum's Public Engagement program is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
