Art Without Walls: Sounds of Freedom

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

Art can transcend barriers of all kinds. Families create art inspired by social justice issues, children’s literature, and Hammer exhibitions. The same activities are offered at each site. The program at the Hammer includes storytelling in the galleries. The program at the library is bilingual in Spanish and English.

Recommended for children ages 7+, teens, and grownups.

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 and The Winnick Family Foundation.

Bugaboo graciously supports public school transportation to Family Day.
