Our hosts at the Autry Museum of the American West have planned a full day for us, both at its state-of-the-art, soon-to-open storage and conservation facility at the Autry Resource Center in Burbank and at the Museum itself in nearby Griffith Park. Close by we will also visit the Pasadena Museum of History, housed in the Fenyes Mansion, where the family who once lived in this historic home have a number of connections with Santa Fe and SAR.  The next day we head to the UCLA / Getty conservation lab, used by researchers as well as graduate students in Archaeological and Ethnographic Conservation, located on the campus of the Getty Villa overlooking the Pacific.  In addition to seeing this high-tech lab we will learn from one professor about how SAR Guidelines for Collaboration were developed and are used in teaching and research.  We will also see Native American collections at the Fowler Museum at UCLA and learn about the collections of the ancient Americas at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  Our base for three nights is the historic Hotel Normandie, located east of the Miracle Mile and west of downtown.

 

Highlights

  • Talk by David Treuer, author of the best-seller “The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee,” and former SAR Lamon Fellow
  • Meet Maylei Blackwell, former SAR Anne Ray Fellow and UCLA associate professor, activist, oral historian and author, who will tell about her ground-breaking “Mapping Indigenous LA” project
  • Behind-the-scenes tour at the Autry Resources Center, expected to open later in 2020, a state-of-the-art storage and conservation facility in a 105,000-square-foot, LEED-certified building with secure, climate-controlled storage rooms, conservation laboratories and a photo studio, as well as a conference room, reading room, curatorial offices and a private ceremonial garden
  • Docent-led tour at the Autry Museum of the American West, established in 1988 by singer, songwriter, actor and businessman Gene Autry, focusing on its Native American baskets, ceramics, jewelry and textiles interspersed throughout its collections of Western art, firearms, saddles, and Hollywood Western memorabilia – much of it collected by Autry, his friends and other Western film stars
  • VIP tour at the Pasadena Museum of History which, like SAR, is a beneficiary of the Paloheimo Foundation and includes the mansion owned by Eva Scott Fenyes, her daughter Leonora Scott Muse Curtin, and her granddaughter Leonora Francis Curtin Paloheimo – all of whom have illustrious Santa Fe connections
  • Special access to the conservation and research laboratories at the Getty Villa to learn how guidelines developed by SAR are being implemented by the UCLA/Getty Program for the conservation of archaeological and ethnographic materials
  • Behind-the-scenes tour at UCLA’s Fowler Museum of the archaeological collections including from the Rainbow Bridge Monument Valley excavations
  • Visit Los Angeles County Museum of Art where the director of the Art of the Ancient Americas department will talk about its extensive collection and the museum’s methodology; followed by time on your own to visit current exhibitions open during the museum’s multi-year construction project
