Rockin' the Crypt

On Sunday, after we visited the Bauer Warehouse Showroom, we drove up to Forest Lawn Glendale to visit the Museum.  This is a sweet little gallery and gift shop....free. This Spring, the exhibit is "Revolutions 2:  The Art of Music."  This exhibit showcases the artists behind some of the most iconic visuals and graphic art in our music of the '60's, '70's, '80's and '90's.  There are many original paintings and drawings that later became posters and record album cover art. There are sculptures and photographs too.  It's really a wonderful, nostalgic exhibit.  The show runs through August, so you have plenty of time to catch it.

From Black Sabbath's "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" album art to The Jimi Hendrix Experience's iconic Fillmore East to illustrations for Rolling Stone magazine, more than 35 artists are represented in more than 175 artworks loaned for this exhibit.

I just LOVE "Big Eyes" Prince!

The Museum at Forest Law Glendale is one of the best kept secret museums in Los Angeles.  Just driving through the memorial park is inspiring. There are lovely gardens, statues, mosaics, chapels. It really is a peaceful, beautiful place.  Have you seen the movie, "The Loved One?"  A few scenes of that movie were shot at this cemetery, along with scenes at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.  Also, the main founder of Forest Lawn, Dr Hubert Eaton, was spoofed in this excellent film, based on Evelyn Waugh's book of the same name.

I could not resist taking a photo of my new car in front of one of the majestic buildings at Forest Lawn!  Yes, the Atomic Gold WonderCar definitely looks like it belongs at this country "mansion!"
Next visit, I'll park closer to the Church of the Recessional
