Southern California Museums 2020

Posted by Mary Hendra on January 25, 2020

Every year around this time, Southern California Museums open their doors for free.  And while the official "Free-for-All day" was today, there are many more opportunities to see these great institutions which contribute to and reflect our region. This year, we wanted to do a quick shout-out to some of our museum partners who have not only participated in the annual Free-for-All day but have opened their doors to us in the past and in the future.  We hope to see you at one of these events!

California African American Museum. CAAM recently sponsored an exhibit on The Liberator in collaboration with Arianne Edmonds and the J.L. Edmonds Project. We were thrilled to co-host a talk with Arianne and to have her returning to speak at our upcoming Reconstruction workshop! Workshop registration is now open here.

Fowler Museum at UCLA. We are looking forward to being part of the Fowler's upcoming educator conference on February 1st.

Japanese American National Museum.  With Fred Korematsu Day coming up January 31, join us for one of three Open Houses this week and receive a free poster set of materials!

La Plaza de Cultura y Artes.  Among various events we have collaborated on, we were thrilled to include La Plaza de Cultura y Artes last year in our seminar on Migration, which we will run again this coming July.

LA Museum of the Holocaust. We are looking forward to a March 8th workshop in collaboration with LA MotH and The Butterfly Project.

Museum of Tolerance. We continue to collaborate with MoT to offer regular 2-day workshops on the Voices and Choices of Young People During the Holocaust and the what  Young Adult Literature can teach us about Identity, History, and Choices. April 6-7 is the next workshop.

Skirball Cultural Center. Of the many events hosted at the Skirball, we enjoyed recently interviewing Alice Hoffman on stage for her new book, The World We Knew. Want another thought-provoking evening? On February 7, 2020, join Kristina Wong, a performance artist and real-life elected official in Koreatown, as she shares her side-splitting insights on voting history, the theatrics of campaigning, and more at the world premiere of Kristina Wong for Public Office.
