Billy Schenck - "A River Runs Through It" at The Autry

The Autry Presents "New Acquisitions Featuring the Kaufman Collection"

The first section of the exhibition, The Ultimate Icon is dedicated to the Western archetype, the cowboy. Artworks and quotes contrast nostalgia developed in the late 19th century - embodied in the rugged white individualist - with the not-so-glamorous reality of diverse working cattlemen. The excitement of Frederic Remington’s turn-of-the-century bronze, Rattlesnake is matched in recent sculptures by Harry Jackson and Herb Mignery. Doug Owen’s life-size horse made from car parts offers a more ironic point of view. Paintings by Bill Owen, Bill Anton, and others portray the lives of today’s cowboys, whereas others depict rodeo riders: the icon made contemporary.

The Hollywood Bowl: The Story of an L.A. Icon

After playing home to concerts, theatrical productions and an Easter Sunrise service, the Hollywood Bowl kicked off its first official season in the summer of 1922. It was a barebones experience for spectators, who sat on temporary wooden benches to watch Alfred Hertz conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The scenery and the sounds, however, were hard to beat. Located in a bowl-shaped area of the Hollywood Hills that was once called Daisy Dell, the spot where the venue now stands was chosen, in part, for its natural acoustics. Those are amplified by electronics as well as the bandshell with its distinctive white arches. It's actually the Hollywood Bowl's fourth bandshell. The first two were designed by Lloyd Wright, son of architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
