LAT Columnist Says Save the Southwest

New, 1 comment

The Autry National Center still has plans to subsume the Southwest Museum's collection into its own -- they say they're not only saving it from the rickety building, but they'll be showing it in the one place where people might actually see it. LA Times columnist Hector Tobar disagrees: "... the building and the collection are themselves a precious artifact of L.A. history. The Southwest Museum stands for the moment when Los Angeles became aware of itself." [LAT, previous coverage]
