History Project

Members of LAAC contributed art and stories to the Los Altos History Museum describing their experience as artists in Los Altos.  The collection was presented to the Museum May 16, 2018.  The stories were compiled into a catalog that is part of the permanent collection of the community's history.  CD copies were made available to members who participated in the project.

The idea for the project originated with member Doreen Cohen, who did the work of collecting the stories and photos and putting them all together on behalf of the group.  She also designed the cover and invited the director of the history museum for the presentation of the final compilation in print form.  SPECIAL THANKS TO DOREEN from all of us in the club!
