In 2020, LA as Subject’s virtual Archives Bazaar included an online History Keepers exhibit, When I Think of Home: Images from L.A. Archives that featured items from nearly fifty LA As Subject member collections. This year, we are planning another collaborative exhibit that will be unveiled at the Archives Bazaar on Saturday, October 23, 2021.
This year's exhibit, LA Stories: Community Spotlight will focus on stories in the archives that are not widely known. LA As Subject members can submit 1-3 items from their collections that tell a story (or various ones!). Like History Keepers exhibit themes of the past, this one is open to broad interpretation - the stories can focus on individuals, families, or organizations/businesses that have made an impact on Los Angeles history or can be as simple as sharing an interesting fact about a landmark.
What is a story in your collection that you feel hasn't been widely told and should be shared? Is there a story you learned about by chance or one that challenged a history you’ve been told?
The goal of LA Stories is to add to our collective knowledge of the city’s history by sharing diverse stories from the collections of LA as Subject members. Please contribute and let your stories be known!
