The 2008 California Hall of Fame Represents the Golden State's Creative Spirit
The California Museum's California Hall of Fame -- now in its third year -- honors the leaders, trailblazers, and legends that have made their marks on the Golden State. For 2008, eight of the 12 to be honored on Monday, December 15, made their mark in the creative industries: Dave Brubeck and Quincy Jones in music, Jack Nicholson and Jane Fonda in film, Dorothea Lange in photography, Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel in children's books, Robert Graham in sculpture and visual arts, and Julia Morgan in architecture.
The other four 2008 inductees are fitness guru Jack LaLanne, scientist Linus Pauling, governor and university founder Leland Stanford, and chef and restaurateur Alice Waters. Even these notable Californians had the arts and creative industries affect their lives, from LaLanne's television programs to Water's eight books.
