Hammer Museum | Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933–1957

Leave a comment

Ahhh…a beautiful, lazy Sunday! We decided to visit an exhibition at the Hammer Museum here in Los Angeles…Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933–1957. When we entered the museum, we were greeted by the street art of Kenny Scharf, a New York street artist, prominent in the 1980’s…lots of fun! Black Mountain College was an experimental college in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The College gave equal attention to the arts and many influential artists, poets, musicians and performers either taught or were students there. We went to see the work of Anni and Josef Albers, specifically, but were impressed and inspired by all of the work that was produced there. If you’re in LA, it’s worth going to see…the exhibit is free and parking was only $3.00!
