HISTORIC DOWNTOWN LA MAPS ON DISPLAY TONIGHT AT ART WALK
Downtown Art Walk has already kicked off for the month of September, but if you’re not out there yet and planning what show to see, or even if you’re already there and want to make sure you catch the hidden gems, don’t miss Josh Gray-Emmer’s exhibition of his private collection of historic Los Angeles maps.
Gray-Emmer has long collected maps that show very rare aspects of DTLA’s history, including a 19th century map that allowed our President to sneak through the city while repelling Mexican Forces. Some of the maps will be on sale and all are dated to pre-1930. Also on display will be some historic newspapers and other items. Check out the description of the show below and a link the event here.
Josh Gray-Emmer is opening his private collection for viewing by the public at The El Dorado Lofts. Included in the collection is a VERY RARE hand colored 1913 Biast Atlas Map of The Historic Core, a 1847 Map made for The President to assess the Mexican Forces advancing on Pueblo De Los Angeles, and a 1910 Security Bank of LA downtown walking map. Some maps will be for sale.
