The renovation of our ‘front door’ entrance on Main Street was completed on December 25, 2019 with the installation of a lit blade sign attached to the southeast corner of the Brunswick-Vickrey Building. The 15-foot sign spans the fourth floor and was paid for with funding from the California Natural Resources Agency Small Museums grant program. The sign is part of a master plan to make LA Plaza more visible and welcoming to passersbys and Olvera Street visitors. Other elements of the plan included construction of the new Admissions area on Main Street; installation of an awning over Admissions (also paid by the State); bright new window graphics; and installation of the archway leading to the Walkway.
Installation of the sign was a 12-hour process that was completed under the cover of darkness.
