Up Against the Berlin Wall in L.A.

Museum Row - Berlin Wall

In front of the Variety Building across from the L.A. County Museum of Art are ten sections of the Berlin Wall, the largest segment outside of Berlin. Once the Wall segments arrived in Los Angeles, four artists painted five assigned segments in public view. It is part of The Wall Project of the Wende Museum in Culver City, preserving cultural artifacts and archives related to the Cold War in Eastern Europe.

As a public art initiative to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall, it loudly conveys the museum’s mission on one of the city’s busiest thoroughfares.  Measuring nearly forty feet long, it continues to attract hundreds of visitors every day.

More about other eclectic attractions can be found in the new resource guide for L.A.
