Govan says donors step forward

Very exciting news from the Los Angeles Times this morning:

"In the wake of the chorus of disapproval that greeted last week's announcement that he was red-lighting the 40-year-old weekend film series at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, museum Director Michael Govan has some good news: Potential donors have stepped up, interested in helping underwrite the series."

Full story here.

Suffice it to say, we are thrilled at the possibility that donors may step forward to save the film program at LACMA. However, until until we're assured that the film program is staying in place, we'll continue to collect signatures (currently numbering 1,250 supporters!) and build our protest on Facebook in full force.
