Contemplative Art Viewing in the Grunwald Center

Friday Jan 9, 2015 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Mindfulness educator Mitra Manesh will lead a one-hour mindful art-viewing experience of works in the permanent collection. 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.

This special CAV session explores a new format, taking place in the Museum’s Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts. The location will allow participants to have a more intimate experience with art works deliberately chosen for Contemplative Art Viewing.


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.
