30748A new Public Initiative - The Living Museum:Sycamore Grove March 8, 10am-4pm
- Feb 24, 2014
Hope you can join us at the exciting and fun inaugural event for a new multi-year public initiative called "The Living Museum: Sycamore Grove." The initiative is aimed at helping a series of threatened museums in Highland Park by establishing a new district, a new context, a new groundwork for them to operate. The threatened museums include the Southwest Museum (LA's first Museum -100 years old), the Casa de Adobe (96 years old) and the Lummis Home (118 years old), which are closed, nearly closed, and otherwise needing our support! The Living Museum is a constructive, positive, community based way to encourage people to experience these fascinating museums, the district itself and build consciousness about LA's history. We intend to host several events a year, each with different themes - Art will certainly be a big important one :)
