Karen Wilson’s interview with KPCC
BCC member Karen Wilson, UCLA historian and co-curator of “Jews in the Los Angeles Mosaic”, was interviewed Thursday on KPCC about her new exhibit at the Autry Museum.
The Autry Museum in Griffith Park opens its exhibition chronicling the contributions of Jews to the business, arts, and skyline of Los Angeles. LA is home to the second largest number of Jews in North America, and only Tel Aviv, New York City, and Jerusalem have more Jews in their city limits.
Members of the city’s Jewish community gave us Grauman’s Chinese Theater, the iconic Stahl House in the Hollywood Hills, the Disney Concert Hall downtown,and the Barbie Doll, to name only a few of their contributions. The Autry’s exhibit attempts to paint a broad picture of the contributions of this vastly important Angelino community. (Original post at scpr.org )
