Hammer Museum Still Won't Sell Hammers Expands

The Hammer Museum, a place that's hosted quite a lot of fun exhibits and events over the years has released plans to expand by 2020. The museum plans to expand the galleries by 60% including two major newly constructed ones.

Here's a few more points from the press release:
  • Increasing visibility of the museum with a dramatic new presence along a full city block of Wilshire Boulevard
  • Enhancing 20,000 square feet of community spaces to make the museum more accessible and inviting to both visitors and passersby
  • Creating premier facilities to showcase L.A.’s third largest collection and make the Hammer’s outstanding works accessible to students, scholars, and the public
  • Supporting the museum’s intellectual, creative, and operational capacity with a two-story expansion of workspace
This with other major museums coming into view including the Lucas and the Academy musuem will make LA's cultural side grow to unseen levels. We're going to have a lot of art on view and a wide range of media and history on view in 2020 if all construction finishes on time.
