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.

As your resident cartographer, I highly recommend this.
