The Cultural History of Highland Park: Chapter 1
With the launch of the first chapter on October 10th, we spent the past week sharing and discussing each hotspot--a person, place or event--through various social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter. Using Storify, we sum up these hotspots and topics.
We encourage you to explore and follow Chapter 2, a history that placed Highland Park as Los Angeles' first bohemian neighborhood, from the legacy of Charles Lummis to the establishment of the Arts and Crafts Movement, the draw to the Arroyo Seco via Plein Air painting, and the creation of the Southwest Museum of the American Indian.
