In 1900, author L. Frank Baum and illustrator W.W. Denslow published “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” spawning a universe that has delighted and inspired generations with a multitude of books, movies and stage plays for well over a century.

HeritageSquareMuseum, in conjunction with Creature Features, will pay tribute to this enduring universe with VISIONS OF OZ – A CELEBRATION OF ART FROM OVER THE RAINBOW, a multi-media exhibit showcasing over 100 works of art from a diverse group of artists including Rick Baker, Drew Struzan and Dave Dorman. This unprecedented month-long event will feature work in a wide range of media including illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and full-sized recreations of some of your favorite characters from the beloved 1939 MGM musical starring Judy Garland. The event will also showcase a dazzling display of historical memorabilia, including rare editions of the original Baum books, props, concepts and artwork from various Oz-themed film & TV projects, and many more surprises.

Beginning March 3, the exhibit is on view during regular museum operating hours (Friday, Saturday and Sunday only) in the PerryMansion gallery.  Admission: $10 Visions of OZ + museum tour; $5 Visions of OZ exhibit only and is free for museum members.  The exhibit closes on Sunday, March 31.

Heritage Square, a Cultural-Historical Landmark #1007 for the City of Los Angeles, is a living history museum dedicated to telling the story of the development of Southern California during its first 100 years of statehood. The eight magnificent, rescued historic structures plus our new Colonial Drug Store exhibit tell this story like no place else.

The museum is open regularly Friday through Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. Regular admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for children ages 6-12. The Museum is located at 3800 Homer Street, off the 110 Arroyo Seco Parkway at Avenue 43, just north of downtown Los Angeles. For further information, visit our website at www.heritagesquare.org.
