Day Steinhart and her husband, David, both enjoy the beauty along highway 395 and have become especially fond of the Alabama Hills and the City of Lone Pine.  Day's painting, "Hills of Fame," captures their shared love of Western films and the legacy and heritage of film making in the Alabama Hills of the Eastern Sierra.

As an honors student, Day Steinhart earned her B.A. Degree in Design Art and Fine Art from California State University at Los Angeles and attended also the master’s program in Studio Art California State University at Northridge. She further developed her technique by traveling to major art museums in the United States, Europe, Mexico and Canada and studying the works of art masters.

Day’s paintings have been recognized and appreciated by experts who selected her works for exhibits at the Westlake Village Library, Gardens of the World, Mittel Art Gallery, Thousand Oaks Civic Art Plaza, and The Newbury Park Library art gallery. Her abilities are also recognized by the famous American watercolor artist, Tony Couch, and together they collaborated on presenting art workshops for the Conejo Valley community. She has worked within the Ventura School District as an art teacher at Sierra Linda, Rio Real and Mar Vista Elementary Schools and for ten years has been an art instructor at Michaels Arts and Craft Store. Currently she is teaching classes in acrylic and watercolor painting.

Day possesses a community spirit which is evidenced by her having volunteered to teach art at Ladera, Yerba Buena and Northhills Elementary Schools as well as by her donating several of her original paintings to worthy organizations to support their fund raising programs.

The Lone Pine Film History Museum and Board extend their appreciation to Day and David for their generocity and contribution to the Museum's mission towards archiving and documenting the western film heritage of the Alabama's and Eastern Sierra landscape.
