Unite and create. Join us for an afternoon of art, music, performances, and more.

All ages welcome. Most activities are recommended for ages five and up. American Sign Language interpretation will be offered during performances and story time.

The Hammer Museum hosts an afternoon of socially engaged art, music, performances, and more at this year’s Family Day: Art Beyond Borders.

Highlights include  an interactive puppetry performance with Bob Baker Marionette Theater, hip-hop dancers from Culture Shock Los Angeles, stories from InsideOUT Writers poets, and music performances by Rhythm Child, Wild Dreams, and the duo Noah James & Brendan Brandt.

Guests can contribute to a giant weaving that will be installed at the U.S.-Mexico border, make a collaborative balloon constellation, add their voices to a collective soundscape, and help make a map of how families are being separated by U.S. policy along the border. 

The free annual family festival fills the museum with art, music, performances, and yummy yummy cotton candy.

Parking is available under the museum for $7 flat on weekends
