Publications Subsidy Grant for Los Angeles Union Station

Program Period: December 2013–June 2014

publication cover
 
This grant provides editing and indexing support for the Getty Research Institute publication Los Angeles Union Station, which accompanies the exhibition No Further West: The Story of Los Angeles Union Station, on view at the Los Angeles Public Library through August 10, 2014.

Los Angeles Union Station complements the exhibition through its 70 color and 25 black-and-white illustrations and adds a wealth of historical background. Aided by new research as well as drawings from the Research Institute's Union Station Archive, the authors demonstrate how contentious politics informed architectural design and examine the many ways in which Union Station was central to the development and rise of the city of Los Angeles.

The exhibition was organized and curated by the Research Institute, with generous support from the Automobile Club of Southern California.
