West Coast Custom: Sports Museum of L.A. Set To Open Doors
Published November 26, 2008
ROOM TO GROW: In L.A., Greg Johnson noted Cypres has spent more than $1M "bringing the building up to city code." Cypres is operating the SMLA as a "for-profit business, but has begun paperwork to convert it to a nonprofit." Johnson noted the museum offers "no soccer or hockey memorabilia," and "little evidence that women have played sports." But Cypres "sees such deficits as ways to grow" (L.A. TIMES, 11/24). Cypres already is in the "process of planning an expansion." Cypres said that he has "enough material -- including a replica of a circa 1900 boxing gym -- to fill at least another 12,000 square feet" (L.A. DOWNTOWN NEWS, 11/24).
