A third meeting in a little more than three weeks aimed at discussing the longterm sustainability of the Southwest Museum is scheduled this coming Sunday, Sept. 22, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Glassell Park Senior Center, 3750 Verdugo Rd. 90065.
The meeting is a follow-up from the Sept. 11 gathering of about 40 people who attended the so-called El Plan Del Southwest Museum Task Force held at the same venue, according to Gabriel Buelna, one of the task force’s key organizers.
Some 90 people showed up for the first meeting of the museum task force, which was held Aug. 29 at Mount Washington Elementary School. At that meeting, a representative of the Autry National Center gave a presentation about the diversity of the museum's collection. Community members from across Northeast Los Angeles discussed the museum's future at the event.
Buelna asks that those who attended the Aug. 29 meeting take the time to review documents given to them, and that they come prepared with thoughts and ideas for the future of the Southwest Museum. For those who missed the meeting, the documents can also be found online at http://www.elplan.org.
Simultaneous translations in Spanish will be available at Sunday's meeting. Questions?Call (323) 243-3549. Or e-mail Buelna at email@example.com.
