The Hammer Museum at UCLA offers exhibitions and collections that span classic to contemporary art, as well as programs that spark meaningful encounters with art and ideas. Through its international exhibition program and its biennial, Made in L.A., the Hammer highlights contemporary art since the 1960s and the work of emerging and underrecognized artists. The exhibition program, five collections and nearly 300 public programs annually — film screenings, lectures, symposia, readings, music performances and workshops for families — make the Hammer a vibrant intellectual and creative nexus. The museum also houses the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts and the Billy Wilder Theater, which screens preserved classics and contemporary films under the aegis of UCLA’s acclaimed Film & Television Archive.
