History Keepers: Storied Objects from Los Angeles Collections

The Pico House
424 North Main Street, Los Angeles
Tuesday–Sunday, 10:00am – 4:00pm

Photographs, documents, scrapbooks, and ephemera are some of the material objects that help us to tell and understand our history. What are the objects that tell the story of Los Angeles? Who collects them? What stories do they tell? In this exhibition celebrating Los Angeles’s remarkable history, curious objects from collections housed across the Los Angeles region are displayed together at the historic Pico House in downtown El Pueblo de Los Ángeles to illuminate the history of this multifaceted city.

An exhibition by the California Historical Society and L.A. as Subject, presented in partnership with El Pueblo Historical Monument and the El Pueblo Park Association
