The Citrus Belt Savings and Loan Building Original Constructed in 1926 as a single story bank building has been renovated and restored. Improvements include natural day lighting and access to views, new technology and building infrastructure, a preserved bank vault that will be utilized for special exhibits, and exposed original bow-truss roof framing.  Most important of all the improvements is the restoration of this building’s original ornate Spanish baroque façade to its original and intended character celebrating the city’s architectural history. The result is a two-level exhibition gallery and research facility to be the new home for Riverside born artist Mine Okubo, who died in 2001.  Okubo was interned during World War II in a Japanese-American camp and left her collection of letters, paintings and drawings to be permanently housed in this restored Building appropriately named the Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties.
