Grace Dee May
The Grace Dee May Museum is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of a remarkable woman, Audrey Marie Stein.
As an outstanding educator, Audrey opened doors for students of all ages – from grade school to high school and college. As first a teacher and later as a college professor, Audrey believed that every student had potential and should be given the chance to explore new horizons.
Whether she was in the classroom or with family and friends, Audrey Marie Stein exuded a remarkable gift for sharing her love of fine art. She had an appraiser's eye and a commitment to preserving items of beauty across a spectrum of artistic media.
A Remarkable Collection of
From classical European sculpture to contemporary crafts to folk art crafted by Indigenous Tribes, Audrey sought to collect and preserve what she perceived as the unique and the beautiful.
As a proud member and Past Worthy Matron of the Order of the Eastern Star, Audrey was extremely pleased to be able to find a permanent home for her collections at the historic Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
A Legacy for Generations
Before her passing, Audrey attended the preview opening of the Grace Dee May Museum at the Shrine. Surrounded by friends and supporters, she gratefully thanked the Officers of the Al Malaikah Shrine and expressed her hope that future generations would have the opportunity to share her love of history and art within the museum's galleries.
The Grace Dee May Museum brings together all of Audrey Marie Stein's collections – an eclectic and exciting mix of fine paintings, classic bronze sculptures, antique glassware, decorative and antique furnishings, vintage toys, and much more.
