Southwestern Law School’s Historic Bullocks Wilshire Building

The landmark Bullocks Wilshire Building, a Los Angeles Cultural Monument (#56 to be exact), is part of Southwestern Law School’s campus. Originally a luxury department store for more than 60 years, Southwestern purchased the building from the R.H. May company in 1994 and restored the building to its Art Deco glory. I have had the privileged opportunity to photograph some events for Southwestern Law School, including photographing events at the legendary Tea Room where Hollywood’s royalty including John Wayne, Greta Garbo, Alfred Hitchcock, Marlene Dietrich, Clark Gable and Mae West, came to dine. The public has an opportunity to enjoy this architectural gem through “Summer Days at Bullocks Wilshire”, an annual open house where there are self-guided tours, as well as exclusive events through Southwestern’s Friends of Bullocks Wilshire. For now, take a look at the beauty that is the heart of the Southwestern campus.

I have always had a fascination with light fixtures, especially chandeliers. Adam Tenenbaum has created this beautiful art installation at his home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake, CA. This place has been one of the hidden gems of Los Angeles and I love coming to this place. He has collected and restored over thirty vintage light fixtures, which he has placed artfully on this century old sycamore tree. Adorned like Christmas ornaments, each chandelier is unique and together, they create a new Los Angeles landmark that you must see.

Vincent Lamouroux’s Projection at the Sunset Pacific Motel

French Artist Vincent Lamouroux has transformed Silver Lake’s Sunset Pacific Motel, also known as the Bates Motel, into a temporary art installation. Entitled ‘Projection’, the artist seeks to revive the dilapidated building (and its surrounding palm trees) by giving it a new life: “The idea is to disrupt the way we perceive things by giving some special attention to this one place.” Although the white paint shall slowly fade away and the motel will eventually be demolished to give way to a new apartment complex, it has allowed for the community to enjoy and engage in the beauty that is art.
