Ed and I went on an excursion with the East County chapter with the Museum of Art for a day trip to UCLA. First was a visit to the Armand Hammer museum in Westwood to see a collection of European and American paintings and drawings from the Renaissance to early 20th century. We enjoyed lunch in the patio restaurant in the museum. Armand Hammer was an American business manager and owner, most closely associated with Occidental Petroleum. He was known for his art collection, his philanthropy and his close ties to the Soviet Union. The museum opened in 1990 and in 1994 UCLA assumed its management.
In the afternoon the group visited the Fowler Museum on the UCLA campus with an extensive collection of ethnographic and archeological objects representing the arts of Africa, Asia, the Pacific and the Americas from the past to the present.
