  • I enjoyed looking at the different films that they showed at the hammer museum!!! I was surprised by the art exhibition as well and because they carry a lot of different paintings and also art performances!! I loved that my friend invited me to see The Flowers of St. Francis directed by Roberto Rossellini!! And for Free!!!! So awesome!!!!!!!!!! I had such a good time and will go back for different exhibitions. Right now they have until January the film festival and am interested to see In Real Life: Performance by Simone Leigh where it will be improvisational exchange about black radical political, literary, and artistic traditions. Inspired by the Black Panther Party’s. I am a history buff and love to read and comment on different historical facts! As well as look at her other aspects of art like sculpture that i like from her and enjoy watching!
  • "Lee Young Jun PEN ART" Pen Art(General Remarks) Infinity of lines and dots have symbolism.  Such symbolism is ever changing according to the spirit’s depth.  All works are kaleidoscopic; they are usually composed of indescribable expressions.  Therefore, art’s depth also can be said to be unlimited.  Is pen art’s depth also infinite?  In other words, do the lines and dots flowing from the nib of a pen have an artistic qualification?  In this respect, it is worth thinking deeply.  Pen art begins from an essence of nature’s fundamental values.  From the standpoint of value, or color, a harmony of black and white is essential in nature.  As it is impossible to see any color in darkness, distinguishing color is an essential role of light.  That is why the soul is drawn to light.  Whiteness, or light is a spiritual reflection of the soul while blackness, or darkness is a reality of life on earth.  As the color green is an essential color of vegetation, burnt charcoal is an earthy color that will stay near black.  Blackness is heterogeneous and may be hostile to life.  If blackness belongs to the essence of nature, it also may be said to represent the image of death.  A combination of black and white constitutes degrees of lightness and darkness.  When painting black on a white background, the soul is transported to the white background.  Whiteness comes to life when contrasted with black line and black space.  In this case, soul also may be expressed through the blackness.  Soul may be transported to the black or a combination of white and black, which shed a mysterious merit to the soul or spirit.  Pen arts starts and ends from an essence of nature’s fundamental contrasts.  The primary essence is infinite and eternal while the artistic harmony of black and white can take one’s breath away.  But, this is not possible until a metamorphosis has been realized over many years and spiritual transcendence has occurred.  The transfer of spirit  occurs when one’s life experiences are projected onto the white canvas in harmony with blackness.  That is the true ‘pen art.’                Artist Lee Young Jun I am a Korean. I pioneered the " Lee Young Jun Pen Art " and Perfected the genre. I am Artist Lee Young Jun. Pen Art is the only genre is an important work In the world. The works are extremely valuable. And no one is able to work not dare to imitate. The hope my work can be sympathy to many people. Thank you.
  • The 3rd floor (main) gallery was being renovated when my girlfriend and I visited, but it's free entry and some cool events were planned so I'll be sure to head back some time after they open up the new third floor!
  • This is a UCLA museum on Wilshire and it's free for life. Interesting art exhibits that are continuing changing. Open space to hangout and get some lunch inside or bring your own lunch. In the summer on Thursday nights you'll find a DJ creating a lively vibe; there are free medition classes and many other activities for locals. The top chairs are a hit for everyone
  • It's so great to have a museum of this caliber in Westwood. This museum eschews the pretentiousness commonly associated with museums to produce a creative, immersive and fun experience for everyone.
