Hammer Time

The Hammer Museum at UCLA Hammer Museum

is the perfect way to spend a

weekend afternoon (and it’s free)!

Hammer Museum

  “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.”

Spun Chairs

I definitely was inspired to look at art in a new way after my time at the Hammer. Spinning on a Spun Chair

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.
