Hailed by The New York Times as "a lesson on how to connect the eye to heart and mind," the Skirball Cultural Center has established itself as one of the world's most dynamic Jewish cultural institutions, and among the leading cultural venues in Los Angeles. Its mission is to explore the connections between four thousand years of Jewish heritage and the vitality of American democratic ideals. It seeks to welcome and inspire people of every ethnic and cultural identity in American life.
The Amgen Center for Science Learning is more than just the provider of educational programs to the California Science Center. In 2004, the Amgen Center for Science Learning opened a major new facility, the Wallis Annenberg Building for Science Learning and Innovation, to support its efforts, inviting scientists and educators to use and contribute to this new, major resource in science education. The Amgen Center also worked closely with the Los Angeles Unified School District to open the Science Center School, a neighborhood, charter elementary school which opened in Fall 2004. The architect for the Wallis Annenberg Building and Science Center School, Thom Mayne of Morphosis, was recently announced as the winner of the 2005 Pritzker Architecture Prize . <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
