Contemplative Art Viewing
Mindfulness instructor, Mitra Manesh, leads a mindful art-viewing experience of work currently on display in the galleries. This contemplative session is designed to deepen the art exploration experience by focusing on the suspension of judgment and creating an opportunity for art, artist, and self to be considered anew.
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.
