For years I tried to find a motif embodying the City of Los Angeles for me.
Finally I found it.
“Dance Door” by Robert Graham
The bronze sculpture, created by Graham in 1978, was donated to the Music Center in 1982 by Frederick and Marcia Weisman. For me this vista is Los Angeles at its best. The old (City Hall) framed within the new (modern art) creates a view of a sprawling municipality which combines, by use of frame, space and distance, a perfect relationship.
I found “my” view of the city. On the 4th of July weekend. Coincidence?
