All-new artifact exhibit featuring photos and memorabilia on loan from the 17th class of the California Hall of Fame

In February, a new class of extraordinary individuals took their well-deserved places in the California Hall of Fame, joining over 150 previously inducted Californians whose achievements have made history and changed the state, the nation and the world.

A group defined by “firsts,” the 17th class exemplifies the spirit of innovation that defines California.

This year’s artifact exhibition features a guitar played by Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, basketball star Cheryl Miller’s Olympic gold medal, a wax figure of Mayor Willie L. Brown, a sketch of the November 22, 1977 three-network demonstration of the Internet hand-drawn by Vinton G. Cerf, a script signed by the cast of Ava DuVernay's film Selma, and much more!
