Episode #87: An Afternoon in Orange & Anaheim

Join us this week as we head south to Orange County, where we’ll talk with Cynthia Ward about the pleasures and challenges she’s experienced as a Trustee of the historic Anaheim Cemetery. We’ll also visit with archivist Angel Diaz to learn about her work with the California’s Gold Exhibit and Huell Howser Archive at Chapman University.

We’ll also discuss Union Station’s new shoe shine concession, Laurie Olin’s reflections on his Pershing Square design work, the Alameda Theater on Whittier Boulevard on the market and why LACMA‘s latest half billion dollar pledged art donation is bad news for the Miracle Mile. All this as more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of November 10th, 2014.
