POSTPONED - In Renaissance Rome, the facades of many prominent buildings were painted with spectacular narrative frescoes. Once part of the fabric of the city, only a few now remain. Using works from the Getty collection, including the celebrated “Early Life of Taddeo Zuccaro” series of drawings, the exhibition explores this extraordinary Renaissance phenomenon. Murals continue to feature in our cityscapes today but they remain vulnerable. One gallery highlights the design, painting, and destruction of artist Judy Baca’s 1984 mural, Hitting the Wall, in downtown L.A. Curated by Julian Brooks.
