CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2012
An element of The Museum's plans to serve the entire San Fernando Valley, means an assertive effort to effectively expose residents of the Valley to its historical and cultural treasures. This means taking The Museum to the people means many ways of sharing the Valley's heritage, near their homes and places of work.
This last weekend, over 200 visitors to the Campo de Cahuenga reenactment event had the opportunity to see the wax maquette (artist's model) that the great sculptor, Henry Van Wolf, made in 1976 as a tribute to America and his adopted home in the San Fernando Valley.
Maquette of the Friendship Medallion featuring Lt. Col. John C. Fremont and General Andres Pico at Campo de Cahuenga. The Medallion was a gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Joseph and Ladonna Van Wolf in 2011.
The display featuring the Medallion and photo portrait of Henry Van Wolf are on loan to the Campo de Cahuenga Memorial Historical Association.
