State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

From 1910 until the 1960s, The Los Angels County Art Museum was part of the Los Angeles County Museum of Science, History, and Art in Exposition Park. On April 1, 1965, Los Angeles County Museum of Art moved to its new home on Wilshire Boulevard along the Miracle Mile in Hancock Park. LACMA, as it is popularly called, became an independent art-focused institution in 1961 and moved to the Hancock Park location in 1965. Originally three buildings opened, the Ahmanson, the Hammer, and the Bing. Later, the Japanese Pavilion and B. Gerald Cantor Sculpture Garden of Rodin bronzes both opened in 1988. The Anderson joined the complex displaying Modern and Contemporary Art . About 2000, LACMA West was added when the museum acquired the former May Company building two blocks west at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax. Plans are underway to completely rebuild the facility.
