Steve Martin the Art Curator

photoTo name Steve Martin’s many achievements in the arts would be a lofty task.

He’s hosted the Academy Awards three times, performed his comedy on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Saturday Night Live, and he’s even a Grammy award-winning banjo player.

Now he’s trying his hand at curating an art exhibit.

The exhibit, now on display at the Hammer Museum, is called “The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris.”

Steve Chiotakis sat down with Martin before the opening to talk about art and the current state of comedy.
