Making our way around our sprawling Los Angeles is a fundamental aspect of our lives. But what if you didn’t have to take a car, bus, or train—or bike or walk—to experience L.A.? In this exhibition, unique and curious objects from around the region bring our multifaceted city to us. Each tells a story about Los Angeles—how we move through it and how it moves through us. From individual collectors to cultural and educational organizations, history keepers from Southern California take us to corners of our region we’ve never seen or ones long gone.
