George Redfox has posted a small gallery of historical photos over at his Downey Conservancy Flickr Stream.  The building  is described as this:

Located in the center of Furman Park, Downey Museum of Art is a show place for developing professional artists, and for the best of the community’s amateurs.  It has a permanent collection of over 100 objects, provides art instruction for young and old, and maintains a full calendar of special exhibits.  Encompassing about 3200 square feet of galleries, classrooms, office, and storage, the 16-year old muesum was a construction company office donated by Alice Woodrow, its first director.

And now, the museum organization is moving back in and will be up and running very soon.  There are a few preview pictures up on facebook, click here to see them.
