In the late 1800s, Edwin Deakin documented the California missions as they were falling into ruin. His efforts, along with other artists of the time, had a profound impact on saving them before they disappeared forever. He visited each location and made field watercolor sketches, from which he later created two sets in oil. The treasured collection, was previously thought to be lost, and is now safe in the public trust forever.
This beautiful exhibit will be open daily. There is no admission charge
