Meet Botanical Artist Phyllis Hansen (6/25/16)

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley invites you to meet June's featured artist, Phyllis Hansen. 




Hansen is a botanical artist. Her art is known internationally by its Japanese title, Oshibana. Translated, it means pressed plants and the practice of painting with petals. She employs many botanical materials for these two-dimensional art pieces, including flowers, leaves and even fresh produce. Influenced by her career as a creative director in the fashion side of the advertising world, she treats these pressed botanicals as if they were velvets, laces or silks to create many of her figural pieces and still lives. Join us on Saturday, June 25, 2016 from 2pm - 3pm to learn more about her artwork.

TAKE DAD FOR A STROLL IN VAN NUYS! 

HISTORIC VAN NUYS WALKING TOUR

SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 2016
2pm - 4:30pm




The development entity known as The Syndicate began the process in 1910, but William Paul Whitsett saw it through to the end. Originally a barley field, Van Nuys became a prosperous center of City Government, agriculture and industry. 

Come explore what remains to be appreciated: original 1911 buildings hidden beneath modern facades, first churches, a civic center with many special revelations, one of the main hubs of social and official activity, the Women's Club building, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monuments #201, #202, and #911, and National Register of Historic Places Monument #2509. 



Learn about the origin of the Daily News and the company which was a nationwide maker of silent movie theatre organs. Who were Hobart Johnstone Whitley, Wayne E. Bechtelheimer and Whitley Van Nuys Huffaker? Relive "Wednesday Nights on Van Nuys Boulevard." We will have historic photographs and stories to share as we wander this surprisingly historic San Fernando Valley treasure.

Artist Speaker Series with Irving Starr

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley invites you to meet May's featured artist, Irving Starr.



Starr has an extensive background in the science of information management and system design. He even played a major role in the development of online information management for healthcare. They say one side of your brain plays role in scientific analysis and the other side aids in artistic endeavors. Starr employs both sides of his brain in the production of his art. Starr believes art should make you happy and take you to another place, if only for a moment. Come see his latest artwork and meet Starr on Saturday, May 28, 2016 from 2pm - 3pm.
