Join us for a special visit to Lourinda Bray’s Running Horse Studio in Irwindale. As guest curator for our current exhibition, Giddy Up: Children Take the Reins, Ms. Bray is showcasing a small segment of her vast collection of carousel animals and magical beasts at PMH.
Her studio houses a nearly unimaginable menagerie, along with carousel art, miniatures, toys, and more in 7,000 square feet of merry-go-round memorabilia. Here Ms. Bray carefully restores figures for other collectors and for operational carousels, as well as pieces in her own collection, which spans the history of carousels from the mid-19th century to modern day, with many examples from the “Golden Age of Carousels,” 1861-1920.
Learn about Lourinda Bray’s passion for collecting and restoring these unique artistic creations and enjoy refreshing snacks and beverages.
