............. AND CULTURE!

Wedding In India - Photograph by Phyllis Hansen - Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley

Your Museum of the San Fernando Valley is often thought of as just another local historical organization. However, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley collects and displays works of art as well - especially when those works are the product of the creative genius of Los Angeles-based artists. This wonderful photograph taken in India by Museum Community member Phyllis Hansen is a great example!

OrangeJust want to clarify...this little girl wasn't the bride! Ha ha.
A friend in India has just told me that her mother was engaged at age 3, and married to her father at age 15. Now widowed at 80-something, the once-timid mother has blossomed. She moved from South Africa to Australia, learned English, has been giving speeches, and is now on a year-long round-the-world trip! The woman feels she is her "own person" for the very first time in her life. I love this story.
