is the perfect way to spend a
weekend afternoon (and it’s free)!
“The Hammer Museum champions the art and artists who challenge us to see the world in a new light, to experience the unexpected, to ignite our imaginations, and inspire change.”
The courtyard has Spun Chairs by Heatherwick Studio. They were the best part of the museum. At first one is a little apprehensive about taking a whirl in the chair, but once you’ve spun around once, you do not want to stop. It’s a very different experience, especially when it has the functionality of a chair, but with the added spinning factor!
There are several exhibitions, all appealing to a variety of artistic interests.
My favorite was Perfect Likeness: Photography and Composition. Definitely check it out if you love photography and want to be inspired.
