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
