2009 - The Year of Valley History

We hope you are enjoying checking this blog to watch your Museum's progress. Capturing the history of our Valley, not only entails the preservation of artifacts and documents from the past, but documenting our lives in the present. Four years ago I began regular walks through Valley neighborhoods and made carrying a digital camera a habit.
Last week I met with Elizabeth Morin and Richard Hilton to discuss the formation of an all-Valley Gallery of notables. We shared great coffee at the Aroma Cafe (4300 block of Tujunga Avenue) and had little cups of chocolate at the Gelato Bar next door. On the way back to my car (I parked on a side street so that I wouldn't have to worry about the 1-hour tickets on Tujunga) I encountered this breath-taking home. - Another Valley morning filled with treasures!
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
