CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2012
The December 2011 gift of sculptures by the San Fernando Valley artist Henry Van Wolf will provide historical evidence and inspiration for generations to come. Among the works donated to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is this large bronze medallion of Lyner Ellsworth Behymer, whose story appears in part earlier on this blog. Behymer spent much of his adult life bringing important musical events to Los Angeles and laying the foundations for a world-class symphonic orchestra for the city.
