Barnsdall Art Park (August 27, 2006)

Before it was an art park, it was an olive grove.

But that was nearly 95 years ago.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for heiress Aline Barnsdall, it was envisioned by her to be an arts center for the people of Los Angeles. Somehow, this is what it still manages to be, deep in the skanky heart of East Hollywood.
