The Petersen Automotive Museum welcomed Michael Armand Hammer to its Board of Directors last week.
“Most people know Michael Hammer as Chairman and CEO of the Armand Hammer Foundation, a successful businessman, and a passionate philanthropist,” said Terry L. Karges, Executive Director of the Petersen Automotive Museum. “Michael is also a serious car enthusiast and collector. He is an excellent addition to our board.”
Hammer said he has been a long-time member of the Petersen’s Checkered Flag 200 group and that he’s honored to be elected to the Petersen’s board.
“I am also proud to help facilitate the Armand Hammer Foundation Gallery in the new Petersen,” Hammer said. “This will be an unprecedented way to connect fine art and automotive creativity.”
The Armand Hammer Foundation Gallery will feature BMW art cars when the museum re-opens in December.
Hammer currently serves on the board of STOP CANCER and the Dream Center in Los Angeles.
Hammer served as chairman and CEO of The Armand Hammer Foundation and he is also a co-founder and chairman emeritus of the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
In addition to his love of art, Hammer owns a collection of hot rods, customs, classics and racecars.
