Art Without Walls
Copresented by the Felipe de Neve Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library
Art can transcend barriers of all kinds. Join artist Sandy Rodriguez in creating art inspired by social justice issues, children’s literature, and Hammer exhibitions. The same art-making activities will occur at each site. The program at the Hammer Museum will include storytelling in the galleries. The program at the library is bilingual in Spanish and English.
All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.
Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, and all Hammer members.
The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation.
Hammer Kids also receives support from friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional funding is provided by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation.
