THE ISSUE: The vision of the merger of the Southwest Museum and the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum has not been achieved.
THE GOAL: Bring together parties who can envision and fund a revitalized Southwest Museum complex with enhanced exhibition space for ongoing, quality curation of its stunning collections. This vision would provide local communities and schools in NE Los Angeles access to a world class collection and cultural institution, available via public transit. Adjacent historic resources of the Living Museum further enrich the experience. At the same time the Autry National Center could be showing non-competing exhibits from their core collection and the large Southwest Museum collection.
