Miller Robinson at the Southwest Museum

The historic Southwest Museum is a visual icon of the east side of Los Angeles, founded by Charles Lummis and built by Sumner P. Hunt and Silas Reese Burns in 1914. It shines like a beacon at the foot of Mt. Washington. Though recognized by most, few Angelenos have visited the museum, but hopefully this is about to change. Emerging curatorial team Pejman Shojaei and Luke Forsyth, who go by the name Holiday have partnered with the museum to present the work of artist Miller Robinson (Of this body; of this earth opening May 20 – June 16) in the museum’s most curious feature—its tunnel entrance.
