Villaraigosa and Huizar Renege on Promises to Protect the Southwest Museum (tags)
"Obviously, the Mayor and Council Member Huizar are together with the Autry.

Public Forum on the Southwest Museum (article and transcript) (tags)
On July 1st, The Southwest Museum closed. The Autry National Center, which owns it, claims the future of the museum is secure, while Friends of the Southwest Museum is concerned about the lack of a concrete plan and whether or not relocating parts of the museum to Griffith Park is necessarily the best scenario. The lack of a tangible plan as well as a claimed scarcity of public input has fueled suspicion by the Coalition as to the owner’s true motive.
