We're pleased to share that the Museum team was recently invited to meet with the Superintendent of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation & Parks, whose department manages Centennial Park where we are proposing to install the Venice Heritage Museum.
With the support of our local Council District 11 planning staff, our Board President and Treasurer shared the most up-to-date vision for installing the Museum campus at Centennial Park, as well as the tremendous progress we've made in our fundraising and outreach efforts over the past year ($95K thus far!). At that meeting, we were invited by the Superintendent to submit an updated formal proposal to partner with the City to bring the Museum to life at this underutilized, high potential park site.
We submitted the updated proposal two weeks ago in mid-November and are now awaiting feedback from the Dept. of Recreation & Parks. We look forward to sharing more with you when we hear about next steps!
