The Monterey Museum of Art focuses on American and California art, from its early period to the present day. The MMA's La Mirada building has at its heart an old adobe building from the Mexican Period. Its second building, on Pacific Street, is built around a converted mortuary. Each building has undergone very different changes over time which present unique challenges to its collections. John Rexine, the MMA Registrar (and so much more), will lead a small group through La Mirada and Pacific Street (time permitting). He will weave a fascinating tale of the Museum's history and describe thcomplhe fain caring for its collections. Discussion among the group will be an integral part of the tour.
This tour has been offered by the MMA as a gift to WAAC, who are very grateful for their generosity.
Space is limited to ten participants, who will be chosen on a first-registered-first-served basis.
