more change

Posted by Picasa

another recent renovation in LA was at Getty Villa. it's been many years since I was last there. but you can tell which areas have been redone. the current exhibition   "Stories in Stone"   is smashing. mosaics. I was particularly excitd at how contemporary "Unswept Floor" looks.

this was a weekend in which the past & present had frequent collisions &nsbp; in which associations bouncd off each other. the crime bus went past the spot on Wilshire & Crenshaw where the Getty Mansion once was. built in the 20s & demolishd in 1957   the residence was used by Wilder as Norma Desmond's house & a few years later by Ray for "Rebel."
