In order to seek new partners for the Southwest Museum and Casa de Adobe, the National Trust for Historic Preservation (Los Angeles Office) and a broad-based Steering Committee of experts have developed a detailed Request for Interest (RFI) with the property owner, the Autry Museum of the American West, to solicit innovative and thoughtful concepts that reactivate the Los Angeles landmark and icon of the Arroyo Seco neighborhoods as a community asset.

Tours of the Southwest Museum campus , the Casa de Adobe and the Resources Center of the Autry will be offered in the next few months to allow all potentially interested parties to see the sites and the collection first-hand.

More information and access to the RFI is available at: www.theautry.org/SWMRFI

Questions about the RFI can be sent to the Autry and National Trust team at SouthwestRFI@theAutry.org.

The RFI is open to wide array of potential partners including larger institutions down to smaller local community groups, either individually or as a team. Proposals are due June 10th.

Take action for the Southwest Museum and Casa de Adobe

The Highland Park Heritage Trust urges you to be involved in the RFI process in the following ways:

1. Spread the word. Share the RFI broadly to help target potential partners.

2. Submit a proposal yourself or with a group.

3. Send a letter to LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis in support of Los Angeles County assuming control of the Southwest Museum (the possibility is currently under formal review by the County)

Contact Supervisor Solis at: www.hildasolis.org or (323) 881-4601

4. Share with the HPHT your thoughts, ideas, questions or concerns about the RFI at info@HPHT.org. We want to hear from you!
