Icon of San Gabriel by Gerald Fecht -
A great and shining star in the preservation of California history and culture is our friend and colleague Phyllis Hansen. A Board Member of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley and The Friends of Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Association, Phyllis Hansen's leadership is well on the way to making a permanent impact on her State, in the tradition of her kinswoman the great California artist Orpha Klinker.
We are Soooooooo lucky to have Phyllis working for The Museum and for the residents of greater Los Angeles!
The icon featured in this blog entry was made from a reserved Fresca can. It gives honor to the much honored Saint Gabriel Archangel, for whom our sister Mission is named. in Christian lore, San Gabriel is the Angel of the Nativity of Jesus.
