Historical Los Angeles map exhibition

Postby nichols » Thu Jan 03, 2008 3:55 pm

Exhibition Overview
The Library of Congress/Ira Gershwin Gallery presents historical maps of Los Angeles from the collections of the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division. These diverse works of craftsmanship, precision, and imagination provide a guide to some of the most remarkable stories of the city’s history: its discovery, its growth, and its industries, as seen by explorers, engineers, artists, residents, and boosters.

Los Angeles Mapped is the third annual exhibition created for the Library of Congress/Ira Gershwin Gallery located in Los Angeles, California. The gallery is housed in the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a magnificent landmark building designed by architect Frank Gehry, which opened in October of 2003. The gallery is the only Library of Congress exhibition venue located outside of Washington, D.C.
