Knitsters @ The Hammer
background: Debbie and Kath
We had a sensational field trip to the Hammer Museum on Saturday! Lisa Anne Auerbach met up with our Knitster Group for lunch and a tour of the group show, "Nine Lives...Visionary Artists from L.A."
We descended on the Hammer Courtyard around noon. I'd say there were 15-20 of us, enjoying lunch, knitting in the courtyard and generally having a great time. I want to thank everyone for coming....from as far away as Catalina Island and Santa Clarita! The weather was perfect.
After lunch we went upstairs to see the exhibit. Lisa's knit work and photos are at the end of the exhibit, so we were able to enjoy the eight other artists' work before gathering in the hanging torso room. Many of us had some pertinent questions for Lisa about her work. We had been given approval to take a few photos, but naturally, not every guard got the memo. It was wild to hear all the walkie-talkies buzzing with alarm as many of us raised our cameras. I did manage to get some good shots of all of us roaming through Lisa's exhibit.
Everyone was impressed by Lisa's knitted sweaters and skirts and her commitment to socio-polital commentary in yarn. Thanks to Lisa for joining us on Saturday and giving us insight into her work. It was a very successful day!
