L.A. Lights Tour

L.A. Lights Tour

The Los Angeles landscape is bright with lights we love: Sheila Klein's vintage L.A. light pole sculpture, an original Thomas Edison bulb behind glass at the Huntington Library, the trippy and futuristic Triforium, & more.

We're happy to share our L.A. Lights Tour with you, featuring public sculptures, museums & streetlights worth observing.
