On Sunday May 5, 2013, the Hammer Museum will host our fourth annual K.A.M.P. (Kids’ Art Museum Project), an event imagined by artists for kids. Painters, sculptors, photographers, and other creative pros will lead inventive workshops and experiences for kids of all ages in the carefree atmosphere of the Hammer courtyard. All K.A.M.P. proceeds will support the Museum’s growing Hammer Kids public programming.
This year’s participating artists include: Edgar Arceneaux, Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues, Vanessa Beecroft, Cayetano Ferrer, Mark Hagen, Pearl Hsiung, Vishal Jugdeo, Glenn Kaino, T. Kelly Mason, Ruben Ochoa, Monique Prieto, Retna, Fatima Robinson, Ry Rocklen, Brian Sharp, Adam Silverman, John Sonsini, Jennifer Steinkamp, Oscar Tuazon and Michael Webster. Story time will take place in one of the Museum galleries with children’s book readings by Dianna Agron, Jason Bateman, Julie Bowen, and Jodie Foster.
The museum is looking for volunteers to assist with a variety of duties, including setup/cleanup, check-in, artist assistants, greeters and guides. We will need staff for both the day before and the day of the event. We are looking for 125 volunteers, so please extend this invitation to anyone who may be interested.
