I've never been! Sounds delightful, either Sunday is fine by me.

Ahh, tonight they are having a talk about Latasha Harlins, Latasha Harlins: The Victimization of Black Girls but health issues will keep me away. I made a post about her a couple of weeks ago and wish I could go.

They always have interesting programs and exhibits but I never seem to make it so thanks for posting this!

Hammer time!

Since May 28 is Memorial Day, I expect we'll get better turnout if we do May 21st. If no one objects, I'll turn this into a confirmed event on May 21st.

I may not be able to join you until mid-afternoon on the 21st. But I agree it's a better day than the 28th. Thanks for getting this going, Atrahasis!

I would love to go, but currently have to take a Huge Professional Exam-Type Thing four days later. If I decide to postpone that, I'll be there. Otherwise, have fun!

I work catty-corner from the Hammer. While I can't make it, I can highly recommend the permanent collection, which has two Rembrandts and a glorious Sargent. Also good is Espresso Profeta, which is yards away, on the block just north of the Hammer. The cafe at the Hammer is either really great or terrible, depending on the day and which planets are lined up.

Oh, and if anyone's ever near the area on a weekday, feel free to MeMail me. :)
