Originally opened in 1990 to house Dr. Armand Hammer's collection of old master paintings and drawings, the Museum expanded to include thematic contemporary exhibitions, scholarly historical exhibitions, contemporary artists’ projects, and a sculpture garden.
It is one of three public art locations for UCLA's School of Arts and Architecture, currently housing over 2,000 artworks in the Contemporary Collection alone.
