Restored Ceiling of the Central Library 2007 - photo by Jerry Fecht for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley
CITY SIGHTING - from Shel Weisbach -
"I went Orange- and Red-Lining to the Central Library today. After burying myself in the History Library, on floor minus 4, I resurrected myself and rose to floor plus 2 to check a Getty Museum exhibit of 150
Julius Shulman prints. (The Getty owns Shulman's archives.) AWESOME.

BEAUTIFUL. FASCINATING . . . If you have the opportunity to go downtown by January 20 please do yourself a favor and see his Los Angeles architectural journey. Give yourself extra time to study individual photos that may absorb your interest.
Also, if you have not done so previously, spend a few (or more) delightful moments walking amid the sculptures and fountains of the West Lawn.

Added suggestions . . . cross 5th Street and ascend/descend the Spanish Steps and check the lobby of the adjacent highrise . . . still have time? Hike down to 7th, east of Fig and checkout the MARVELOUS tile lobby of the Fine Arts Building opposite the old Barker Bros. (furniture) Store." Shel

Recent Shulman photos are on display now through November 20 at the Craig Krull Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. Exciting! Many Griffith Observatory images included. Shulman, now 96 or 97, is still working.
