The Ford Foundation has given Los Angeles’s Hammer Museum a $200,000 grant to support public programming. With aid from the grant, the museum will continue to offer free programs and special events with a focus on social justice.

The grant money will also help the museum upgrade its technological infrastructure. The Hammer plans to use the money to help reach a wider audience through digital outreach and to archive old content.

In a statement, the Hammer’s director, Ann Philbin, said, “We are eager now to share our equally impactful public programs with the wider audience they deserve. By investing in a critical pillar of our activities, Ford is giving us the ability to strengthen our infrastructure, share this important work more broadly, and realize the full potential of our public programs.”
