Evening @ the Barn: Hollywood Heritage Celebrates Ed Edelman
To the residents of Los Angeles, Ed Edelman is nothing short of a legend. During his thirty years of elective office, and his later years as a governmental advisor, Edelman produced a breathtaking list of accomplishments. A visionary leader, his mark is seen in almost every sector of the community.

Throughout his years of public service, he demonstrated an unwavering dedication to humanitarian causes, as well as a profound commitment to the advancement of cultural life of the community and to the protection of the environment. Beyond that, he was known as a reformer in his efforts to modernize the structure of city and county government and to make government more responsive to the people.

Over his twenty-year term as Supervisor, Edelman represented a culturally, ethnically and economically diverse constituencyJewish, Hispanic, Asian, Korean, Filipino, African-American, as well as the gay community of West Hollywood. An empathic individual, he had a rare ability to understand and speak to these constituencies; as a result, he enjoyed remarkable popularity in each of the communities.

Edelman played a key role in the 1983 relocation of the Lasky-De Mille Barn. Winning the support of the Philharmonic Association, he facilitated the move of the boarded up building, then situated on the Palace Theater parking lot, to the southern end of the Hollywood Bowl parking area where it sits today.

Now in his 82nd year, Ed Edelman is battling a debilitating neurodegenerative disease, Atypical Parkinson's. The crippling disease has brought him closer to a cause he championed early in his careerthe rights of the disabled. Despite his illness, he has, until recently, continued to have an impact in the communityserving on non-profit boards such as the Colburn Foundation, the Colburn School Board and as a civilian member of the LAPD disciplinary panel, the Board of Rights. He continued, until last year, to chair the Bollens-Reis-Hoffenberg lecture series at UCLA, which he created in 1990 in honor of his late political science professor, Jack Bollens.

Please join us as we honor him with a special screening of "The Passions and Politics of Ed Edelman: An Untold Story of Leadership", narrated by Tom Brokaw. The documentary is the inspirational story of his life and career, a political visionary whose courage and humanity transformed the fabric of life in Southern California. Told through archival footage and poignant interviews, the film provides a journey through Los Angeles' history over the past half-century. Special guests include his wife, Mari Edelman, who also Directed the film as well as other members of his family, friends and colleagues. As always we will be offering refreshments from Grub Restaurant, as well as an opportunity to buy tickets to our famous raffle which benefits the museum's acquisition fund. This is a FREE event, however we ask that you please RSVP so we can get a head-count, as we are still limited on space!
