Hammonds House Museum
Backstory and Context
Hammonds House Museum has a permanent collection of more than 350 works dating from the mid-19th century by artists from America, Africa, and the Caribbean. Every year, the museum has four to five visual art exhibitions. These exhibitions are by significant mid-career and established artists. The museum also has other programming, ranging from artist talks and workshops to art camps for students.
The house itself was built in 1872 in the Victorian style. It is one of the older residences in the West End. The facility is available to host meetings, weddings, receptions and other private functions. The museum's gift shop sells books, jewelry, accessories, artwork, exhibition catalogues and other items.
