Exhibit Description

Artists will choose from a list of historic sites from incorporated and unincorporated Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View provided by the Museum. Other locations will also be considered if they have a story of historic value associated with the building/site; we welcome such additions. “Echoes from the Past” from pre-World War II are especially encouraged, but accepted categories include modern sites with historic value (related to the rise of Silicon Valley).
