The architectural eccentricities and urban sprawl of Los Angeles are given their due aesthetic considerations in this new exhibit at the Getty Museum.

Everyone knows that Los Angeles defines 'urban sprawl,' but this exhibition at the Getty reconsiders our fair city's fifty-year explosion of growth (1940-1990) from a visual perspective.

From the Getty website:

Drawings, photographs, models, films, animations, oral histories, and ephemera illustrate the complex dimensions of L.A.'s rich and often underappreciated built environment, revealing this metropolis's global impact.

The exhibition is part of the 'Pacific Standard Time' series.

The Getty is closed on Mondays.
