Hollywood Sculpture Garden

The Hollywood Sculpture Garden is a unique collection of art pieces and paintings curated by Dr. Robby Gordon. Located in the Hollywood Hills, this museum features excellent sculptures by local as well as international artists in a green, luscious plantation. You can take a peek into the garden and a few of the art pieces at street-level as you pass by. The garden is filled with various art pieces made from steel rods, stones or concrete, that are placed strategically to blend in with the plantation and the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. Not just the garden, but also the stairs have been decorated by embedding beads and marbles to create beautiful textured patterns. The gallery at the entrance hosts a lot of art receptions and displays, which attract gallery owners and museum curators, creating a pool of opportunity for the artists. You can book a visit or sign up for an upcoming event to view this scenic garden and enjoy a tour by Dr. Robby himself.

Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

Art collector and philanthropist Frederick Weisman opened his former private residence and collection to the general public in 1991. There is no admission charge to visit this gallery, since Weisman believed that art contributes to the public good. The residence is built in the Mediterranean Revival style, and you'll be able to see a range of art, from European modernist pieces to abstract expressionist works. Magritte, Rauschenberg, Rothko, and Picasso are featured in the collection. See contemporary sculptures on the outside lawn. Tours are held five days a week and must be pre-arranged.

Hammer Museum

Located on the UCLA campus in Westwood, The Hammer, as it is commonly called, originally opened in 1990 with an extensive collection of fine art featuring painters such as Monet and Rembrandt. In 2007, the Hammer condensed its collection to its very best pieces and recreated itself to feature the most 'cutting-edge' of contemporary art. Now the museum is filled not just with classic paintings but features poetry readings, political debates, celebrity events and late-night DJ parties that are free to students and young artists. The Hammer Project brings up-and-coming artists to center stage featuring them in solo exhibitions, which supports the Hammer's new image as a leader in contemporary art. Group tours can be arranged by calling or emailing in advance.
