The Museum is pleased to have Chris Lukather, founder, and editor of the literary journal, The Writing Disorder, discuss and sign copies of his new book, A Birdhouse in Paradise: William Mellenthin and the San Fernando Valley Ranch Homes. In the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s housing developments began peppering the available land outside of Los Angeles. It was in the Valley that designer-builder William Mellenthin developed his singular brand of cozy, charming home which became known as the Mellenthin Birdhouse ranch home - so called because they featured a cupola or dovecote built prominently into the roof.  With little information published about his life, Chris gathered information from original Mellenthin homeowners, articles, brochures, as well as the Mellenthin family to complete the book.  This will be a fascinating, enjoyable conversation about an interesting part of development in the San Fernando Valley.

Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo exhibit at Pasadena Museum of California Art

From The Museum's inception, a focus on art and arts education has played a major role in ongoing programming.

Yes, we have placed an emphasis on artists from the valley, either living in the valley or have worked within its borders at some point. However, we are also fans of art that is being promoted throughout the greater Los Angeles and even southern CA areas.


One exhibit worth experiencing is a retrospective of Chicano artist, Eduardo Carrillo. His work is on view at the Pasadena Museum of California Art until June 3, 2018. The exhibition features a large mural considered to be the first Chicano-themed mural painted at an American university.

Entitled Chicano History, the mural was painted in 1970 by Carrillo, Ramses Noriega, Sergio Hernandez, and Sol Solache for the UCLA Chicano Studies Resource Center, just before the start of the Chicano Moratorium. In 1991, the mural was taken down for building repairs, it went in to storage and was never installed in the new space as originally intended—Chicano History has not been available to the public until now.



Eduardo Carrillo was raised in East Los Angeles; he graduated from UCLA with a BFA and MFA; and spent 25 years as an Art Professor at UC Santa Cruz. Carrillo’s earlier works focused on murals like the landmark Chicano History mural which depicts the pre-conquest landscape to the moment of the mural’s conception; Las Tropicanas, an almost psychedelic mural full of mystical imagery and symbols; and Father Hidalgo in Front of the Church of Dolores, a tile mural at Olvera Street in Downtown Los Angeles.

Shopping malls, consumerism, suburbia

I came across an interesting article from the Atlantic magazine written by Ian Bogost.

It offers one take on the history of shopping malls.

Over the last 50 or so years, the shopping mall has gone from the go-to place for shopping, for teenagers to hang out and get away from their parents before pagers, cell phones, computers, texting and drivers licenses and to mature a bit in a safe environment. Today, consumers purchasing habits are rapidly going online although millions of people still like to go to the mall to buy something, a gift for a family member, special gift for a friend or even a pick-me-up gift for themselves.

 (The Garden Court, Southdale Shopping Center, Edina, MN, 1965)


For those of you that have experiences about being younger, growing up or visiting valley malls, please make a comment below.

For example, I was at the birth of the Northridge Fashion Center.  As a new teenager, my friends and I could walk to the mall or be dropped off at the mall and hang for hours.  We would hang out at the Bob's Big Boy Jr. or at Spencer's Gifts looking at all sorts of new games and odd things. We would walk in the Broadway store, in the Sears store to check out all of the Craftsman tools and grab a drink at Orange Julius.

Older brothers worked in the movie theatre, now where Old Navy is located, and we would pay to go to a movie and sometimes receive a neighbor's special discount to come and watch one or two.

Some employees actually rode their mini-bike (what's a mini-bike??) in the mall before the security guard come come and kick them out.



This 1970s photo is so classic - this contraption is a glorified lawn mower with two wheels, a makeshift seat encased in tubular steel. It has going too fast, unable to steer and careening off the street and into the neighbor's ivy written all over it.

Some of the kids in Northridge had mini-bikes.  Some would ride around at all hours. Some kids from several blocks away would scream down the street, at a whopping 12 mph, and look pretty cool. Then you would see the kid having trouble pushing the mini-bike up the street because the chain busted. Not so cool now.

To read this article, please click HERE.

Again, please do not be bashful to send us a note, make a comment and bring your past experiences, funny and or painful back to life.

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley Announces Dana Radke to The Museum's board of directors

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is pleased to announce Dana Radke has joined The Museum's board of directors.

Dana was born in Santa Monica, but has lived in the Valley and West Hills for over 50 years. He attended Chatsworth High and L.A. Valley College, where he studied metal machining and also at the West Valley Occupational Center, where he studied electronic assembly.

He served in the Air Force and following moved Reno, Nevada where he was a Field Service Technician for video poker and slot machines.

Dana returned to the Valley where he worked alongside his mother, who was a singer, musician and voice coach. He operated a recording studio, produced music and assisted people preparing for auditions and helped train voice actors.

He has a lifelong interest in photography and has operated dark rooms and produced prints for personal as well as commercial use. 

Other interests include computers where he has learned various computer languages such as Assembly, Promal, HTML and Java Script.

Also, for quite a few years, he has had an interest in Valley history. This led Dana to start looking up photographs of old Valley buildings. This, in turn, has lead Dana to manage the current and ongoing Museum project, Then and Now. He is researching countless areas for photographs of Then and then taking photographs of the Now.

For more than three decades, Millard Sheets (1907-1989) and his studio of artists designed Home Savings and Loan branches throughout California, studding their iconic projects with mosaics, murals, stained glass, and sculptures that celebrated both family life and the history of the Golden State. The collaboration between the Millard Sheets Studio and Howard Ahmanson (1906-1968), Home Savings' executive, resulted in more than 40 branches designed and built between the completion of the first collaboration in 1955 and Ahmanson's death.

“Black History in the SFV: A Deep History That Really Hasn’t Been Told”
Crystal Jackson, Founder and President of the Pacoima Historical Society, and filmmaker of the 2018 Pan African Film Festival Best Feature Documentary nominee “Pacoima Stories: Land of Dreams”, talks about the struggles, sacrifice and undying spirit of America’s proud minority culture in the San Fernando Valley.
Crystal was born in Pacoima in the ‘60’s. Her family had moved to the San Fernando Valley in the 1930’s, first North Hollywood, then Pacoima. Crystal graduated Granada Hills High School but went to San Fernando High her last semester to stay close to her Pacoima friends. She majored in Journalism at Cal State Northridge, but it wasn’t until Crystal moved to the Bay area to begin her Pacoima film that she realized the richness of her town’s history. This evening, Crystal will host preview snippets of her award-nominated film as well as present historic photos and previously untold factual stories of the rich Black culture that contributed to change and vibrancy here in the San Fernando Valley.
