No Further West: The Story of Los Angeles Union Station
At the Los Angeles Public Library
May 2–August 10, 2014

Los Angeles Union Station is a celebrated architectural icon and a symbol of the city’s early twentieth-century aspirations. When it was completed in 1939 Union Station centralized rail travel in Los Angeles and became the primary gateway into the city -- before the rise of air and automobile travel. More than a historic artifact, it is now the vibrant centerpiece of the region’s evolving transportation network. Organized by the Getty Research Institute, the exhibition features beautifully rendered architectural drawings, photographs, and other historic material that illuminate the contentious 30-year process of creating the station's eclectic, distinctly Southern Californian architecture. Presented in another iconic downtown landmark, the LA Central Library, the exhibition thoughtfully unpacks the architectural design, city-planning and cultural politics of the historic station.

This exhibition has been organized by the Getty Research Institute with the generous participation of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
