Balboa Park Club

The historic Balboa Park Club building was first constructed for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition to house the state of New Mexico's exhibits. It was later remodeled and enlarged for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition. It was during this period that sculptor Frederick Schweigardt and painter Belle Baraceneau created their striking fountain and mural which adorn the building's grand foyer.
