Deborah Vankin has an update on the Southwest Museum in the L.A. Times. The Autry now places the cost of refurbishing the Southwest Museum's historic building at $100 million. That's almost double the 2018 estimate of $52 million.
In September there was talk of an unnamed party interested in taking over management of the Southwest Museum building for public benefit. Autry President Stephen Aron told Vankin that "one entity" is being vetted but still won't name names.
