In the seventh episode of Observing Fullerton, Urooj Naveed and Adrian Meza get an exclusive tour of the Fullerton Museum Center led by its director Elvia Rubalcava. The tour consists of glimpses of the different exhibitions, the gift shop, and the beer garden. Rubalcava discusses what the museum has been struggling with for the past couple of years because of massive funding decreases, what other exhibitions are in the plan, and her own poetry and filmmaking work.
Listen to the podcast on Spotify, RSS, or watch the interview on YouTube.

Such an interesting person and working for the city for so long. It was great to see the current Museum Center exhibit in the youtube version of the podcast. I also followed the link to Elvia’s website and Wow – she is into so many interesting things. It would be really fun to have her films featured locally. While exploring her website I found a link to a free mural workshop and joined it. Seems Pasadena has approved a community mural and ideas for the mural was part of the discussion. Wish our city would get behind restoring the Lemon Street overpass murals that are nearly gone through neglect. I see on the mid-may frontpage of the Observer that Councilmember Zahra along with two artists has started trying to raise funds. That’s great! Love the podcast – always takes me to new places and informs me of things I didn’t know about.
