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.
