POSTPONED: Lunchtime Art Talk on Gustave Moreau

WEDNESDAY JUN 3, 2020 12:30 PM PDT

We have postponed tonight’s online program in light of the protests in Los Angeles and across the nation in support of Black lives. The program will be rescheduled soon.

Read our public statement about how we are planning to support the community-led organizations who are doing daily, on-the-ground anti-racist work.

While the museum is temporarily closed, Lunchtime Art Talks take place online every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The Hammer's curatorial department leads free, insightful, short discussions about works of art from the Hammer's collection.

This talk on Gustave Moreau's Salomé Dancing before Herod (1876) is led by Cynthia Burlingham, deputy director of curatorial affairs.

All 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, the Elizabeth Bixby Janeway Foundation, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.
Readings are supported by GRoW @ Annenberg.
Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by The Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
Hammer public programs are presented online in partnership with the #KeepThePromise campaign—a movement promoting social justice and human rights through the arts.
