MORE PAST EVENTSLummis Day 2014
In the gardens of the Lummis Home, the students of Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts presented the culmination of their exploration of the Living Museum. The young artists created a stunning series of public art installations in the garden, exploring the themes of the Living Museum, including Charles Lummis, Historic Preservation, the Southwest Museum and the Mayan Tunnel, the ecology of the Arroyo Seco and the native people who lived along the Arroyo. Many of the works were interactive, inviting the community to add their thoughts, dreams and poetry to the artistic process.

The Living Museum represented by Louisa Van Leer was the artist in residence at Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts.

We brought in local experts t...o talk to the students in depth, including Suzanne Lummis, Poet, Tonatzin Carmelo, Actor & Tongva tribal member, Christina Morris, regional director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Jane Tsong, local artist and expert on the North Branch of the Arroyo Seco.
