In an act of shameless self promotion I am plugging an exhibit I put together at the Arts of the Book Collection, part of the Arts Library, in Sterling Memorial Library. The exhibit is titles Views of Los Angeles, The City Beautiful and it examines the social and cultural context of several of Ed Ruscha’s artist’s books withing the development and mythology of Los Angeles and the American West.
Here is a link to an article in the Yale Bulletin about the exhibit. Views of Los Angeles, The City Beautiful runs through December 20, 2007. Arts of the Book is open from 10-12 & 1-4, Monday-Thursday.
