Please join us as LAVA welcomes Clare Haggarty, the Deputy Director of Collections for the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and Richard Schave, for a tour of civic art in the Civic Center.
Richard will begin the afternoon with an illustrated lecture focusing on the rich architectural legacy of Downtown L.A.‘s civic center, including the Hall of Administration (1958) , Mosk Courthouse (1958) and Hall of Records (1962).
After Richard’s talk, we’ll walk over to the civic center to visit a number of historic and more recent civic artworks, which Clare Haggerty will discuss. The artworks include Alison Saar’s “Embodied” (Hall of Justice), Frank Ackerman’s “Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial” (Grand Park), Joseph Young’s “Topographic Map” (Hall of Records) and Malcolm Leland’s ceramic screen (Hall of Records).
