The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum is a California history museum and National Historic Landmark that maintains the history of the first Spanish land grant in California and the Dominguez family who cultivated the Rancho San Pedro from cattle ranch to the bustling civic center it is today. The museum is open to the public for tours and special events throughout the year. It also provides school tours for thousands of local elementary students a year and is available to rent for private events. Graphic Design interns will have the opportunity to grow their portfolio with real-world applications of techniques for the museum's various needs. You will be able to show your own creativity by creating flyers and create graphics for events at our museum. We have the need for all types of designs from coloring pages to specialty logos to physical documents. Interns should be versed in graphic design software such as Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Publisher, Canva, etc., have an appreciation for local history, and a creative mind. In addition to regular public events, we are also launching a full campaign schedule for our upcoming Bicentennial in 2023. This includes a new membership program, special events, and graphics starting January 2024 - end 2026. Interns with software experience in video editing and graphic design will have the opportunity to utilize their skills to create advertising content and materials. The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum provides interns interested in gaining real-world public relations experience with a unique opportunity to practice their skills and build their resumes in a small business environment. The museum will consider hybrid or remote work for the right candidate.

About Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum

Location:

18127 South Alameda Street, Rancho Dominguez, CA 90220, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of Rancho San Pedro is to preserve and increase community awareness of early California history as it relates to the Dominguez family, homestead adobe and the Rancho San Pedro, the first Spanish land grant in California. This is accomplished through educational programs and the operation of the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum.

Description

The Rancho San Pedro is the site of the first Spanish land grant in California. It was given in 1784 by King Carlos III to Juan Jose Dominguez, a retired Spanish soldier who came to California with the Portola expedition and Father Junipero Serra. The original grant encompassed 75,000 acres, including the entire Los Angeles Harbor area. The land eventually passed to Manuel Dominguez, who built the adobe home on the property in 1826, which serves today as the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum. Dominguez was active in the civic life of early Los Angeles, serving on both the City Council and County Board of Supervisors. He was elected Mayor of Los Angeles in 1832, and was one of the signers of California's first Constitution in 1849. In 1910, the Rancho San Pedro was the site of the first Aviation Meet in the United States. The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum is California Historical Landmark Number 152 and in 1976 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.
