CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 0213
Other than constantly telling the wold what an amazing place the San Fernando Valley is, I don't use my comments on The Museum's blog to complain about things, but today I'm embarrassed for the Valley ... more committed than ever to make damned sure we bring about a major museum for all 2,000,000 of us who live in our space!
Today, the Los Angeles Times's Calendar Section (Nov. 6, 2013) carried a major front page story about the incredible photographic art of John Divola.
Divola's who went to California State University Northridge, and who was "born and raised in the San Fernando Valley" has THREE major museum shows going on - at the same time - at LACMA, The Santa Barbara Museum and the important museum on the campus of Pomona College!
Guess where there is no exhibit of John Divola's art going on? Yep! Not in the San Fernando Valley.
Why? Because, you and I haven't finished our work.
Your Museum started work last year to let the world know about Levi Ponce's murals in Pacoima. Expect to hear from us over and over again until we have a fine exhibition space to present the work of our very own John Divola!
