Thursdays are free admission at the Hammer Museum, which is a great service to students and the community. It’s been a while since we’ve been there, so we dropped by today to see what’s new.
Maya Hayuk’s murals greet you upon entry – an impressive and colorful introduction to the space.
There was also a fascinating exhibition of Forrest Bess’ work. An eccentric and visionary artist, it’s definitely worth a close look at his life and work, which is rich with symbolism and myth.
It’s easy to forget about these resources, but we encourage artists and art lovers to visit, and get inspired. The museum also hosts musical events, readings, and discussions with cultural figures.
So stop on by. This guy is waiting for you.
