Downey Museum of Art

Guests at the Rives Mansion enjoyed a recent fundraiser for the Downey Museum of Art. For several years now, museum board members have been working to establish a new, permanent home for the collection which used to be housed in Furman Park. Among the attendees are (from left) Soroptimist International of Downey president Giggy Saab, Councilman Alex Saab, school board member Martha Sodetani, museum supporter Don Lamkin and local businessman Michael Chirco. Featured local artists were Hector Beltran and Calixto Shibaja. ********** Published: March 7, 2013 - Volume 11 - Issue 47
