our supporters -- Its time to install exhibits in the IVC Desert Museum.
Since losing our original museum site to earthquake damage in 1978 the Imperial Valley College Desert Museum
Society, along with its many supporters in Imperial Valley, has been hard at work. Originally the museum was known as IVC
Barker Museum, after we lost our original site and moved to the new location the name was changed to IVC Desert Museum.
Over the years many fundraising events have been held and grant funding received. Finally the museum building is
nearly complete and exhibits are being designed and constructed.
Here are some photos of the empty rooms and the first exhibit, paintings of regional earthen art by Jay von Werlhof.
Later headings and labels will be added to them.
