For Women’s History Month, Virginia Avenue Park, 18th Street Arts Center, and the Quinn Research Center are teaming up to celebrate the life and work of Thelma Terry, a community leader with a lasting legacy around teen recreation, athletics, and arts education in the Pico Neighborhood of Santa Monica. Though her life’s work touched so many in our community, we were surprised to learn that she did not have a Wikipedia page. As a resource, the Quinn Research Center provided photos and historical information on Thelma Terry from their archives. Through the efforts of Quinn Research Center, researcher Sabrina Fields, Virginia Avenue Park, and 18th Street Arts Center, Terry will finally have a Wikipedia page that matches her profound influence in the community. Come visit for art-making, sharing stories, local history presentations, food, and more.
