Get Your Tickets - Mosaic Tour

Got Extra Pan Tops? Add them to your Garden Mosaic Wall!
Coming up, Sunday, March 21, 10-4, the L.A. Conservancy along with partners the J. Paul Getty Musuem, are sponsoring a day-long, self-driving tour showcasing Los Angeles' mosaic legacy. You can get tickets by contacting The Conservancy.
Highlights of the upcoming Mosaic L.A. tour include: The Towers of Simon Rodia, Watts Towers, an L.A. icon and folk mosaic built by one man over thirty years using everyday objects; St. John's Episcopal Church, site of a Byzantine-inspired ecclesiastical mosaic designed by the artisans of the historic Judson Studios; Murals in downtown Los Angeles by Joseph Young, including a 36 foot panel depicting Los Angeles' architectural history; one of the extraordinary mosaic facades by Millard Sheets on a former Home Saviings and Loan building in Hollywood; and The Birth of Liberty mosaic at Forest Law Memorial Park, the largest historical mosaic in the United States! At each stop there will be docents discussing this amazing artwork.
Mosaic House Patio
To kick-off this tour, there was a Cornerstone Member event this past Sunday at my favorite Mosaic House in Venice. Since I suggested that the LAC utilize this folk art treasure in Venice for the upcoming tour, Larry and I were invited to this exclusive event! Laa Dee Dah!!!

My sister lives in LA and would love this tour.
I found your site while doing research for our radio series, Hidden Kitchens, on NPR's Morning Edition.
We're coming to LA's Hammer Museum in a few weeks. If you're interested I'd be happy to send you and invitation to attend. best - The Kitchen Sisters
kitchen@kitchensisters.org is our email.
