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.


Location: Look for signs or ask a Gallery Ambassador.
Ticketing: This drop-in program is not ticketed.
Parking: Under the museum, $6 flat rate on weekends. Cash only.
