Charles Lummis: Reimagining the American West

Season 8 Episode 1

In this new season, Artbound travels back to pre-industrial Los Angeles to explore one of its key and most controversial figures -- Charles Lummis. A writer and editor of the L.A. Times, avid collector and preservationist, an Indian rights activist, and founder of L.A.’s first museum -- the Southwest Museum -- Lummis’ genius and idiosyncratic personality captured the ethos of an era and a region. 

Visit our Charles Lummis page for more videos, articles and stories on this iconic L.A. figure, and make sure to watch the California's Gold with Huell Howser "lost" never-before-seen episode, "Lummis House."
