Art Without Walls: Sounds of Freedom

SATURDAY MAR 17, 2018, 2:00PM-4:00PM; SUNDAY MAR 18, 2018, 11:00AM-1:00PM

Saturday, March 17, 2–4 p.m. (Off-site: Felipe de Neve Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library; 2820 W. 6th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90057)

Sunday, March 18, 11 a.m.–1 p.m. (Hammer Museum)

What would a memory look like if you re-created it through sound? Teaching artist Ismael de Anda leads a workshop that emphasizes empathy and listening skills as kids create soundscapes based on a time when their grown-up felt free.


Families convened at the Felipe de Neve Branch Library and the Hammer Museum to recreate memories of a time when they felt free, using sound as their primary medium! These soundscapes were captured on audio and can be enjoyed via SoundCloud.
