This fall we worked with our neighboring colleagues the Hammer Museum and The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), the Student Committee for the Arts at UCLA and our new associate curators J. Ivy and Lisa Kaplan. Ready to join the collaboration? Scroll down and explore.

Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK is a free, GPS-enabled work of public art that uses music to illuminate the natural environment. Created by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and sound artist Ellen Reid, the experience is guided by the listener: the path you choose dictates the music you hear, and no two journeys will be exactly the same. It joins CAP UCLA’s ongoing presentation of the full-scale SOUNDWALK for Los Angeles’ Griffith Park, both accessible through the app.
