Skirball Cultural Center to Present 'Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip,' Opening 3/24Skirball Cultural Center to Present 'Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip,' Opening 3/24
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2015

From March 24 through August, , the Skirball Cultural Center presents Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, featuring works by Los Angeles-based photographer Robert Landau. On view will be more than twenty photographs from the only extensive collection of images that capture the hand-painted, temporary billboards that lined L.A.'s fabled Sunset Strip for almost two decades. Taken when Landau was just a teen, the photographs document the emergence of an expressive art form uniquely suited to the city of L.A. and bring to life a colorful and fleeting period in American popular culture. They trace the cultural phenomenon of rock billboard advertising from its inception in 1967 - with the promotion of the Doors' debut album - to the advent of MTV in the 1980s. The photographs also offer a glimpse into L.A.'s past, portraying both the city's infrastructure and inhabitants at the time. (more...)
