House Museum Project

The Renaissance Cultural and Intellectual Foundation purchased William Saroyan’s Fresno home in 2015 and announced the start of the William Saroyan House Museum project. The aim of the project has been to reveal the character and nature of the writer, allowing one to experience his lesser-known aspects, and convey these through unique non-traditional exhibits. Recordings from Saroyan’s musical archive were used to impart a Saroyan environment, and in one of the rooms, the writer is present in the form of a holographic image. For a complete representation of the prominent writer, the project has created a digital archive, comprised of Saroyan memorabilia, photographs, paintings, graphics, movies, and audio recordings.
