Spirited: Prohibition in America
Open to the public through January 8
This exhibit explores the tumultuous years of 1920 to 1933, showing visitors what lead to the passage of the 18th Amendment, how the "wets" fought back, and how prohibition proved to be much more than a constitutional hiccup.
Leo Fender: Life and Legacy
Clarence Leo Fender was an unassuming man who couldn't play the guitar, yet his creations inspired generations of musicians, and changed the sound of popular music. While his instruments soared, Fender spent his life in Fullerton, looking for ways to make his great creations even better. In this 10th anniversary year of the Leo Fender Gallery, we celebrate the man by taking a fresh look at his life, work and lifetime of inventiveness.
