Granite Panels

Granite slabs line the walls and floors in one wing of the LA Convention Center. Designed and etched by Matt Mullican, these Black Cambrian granite slabs reflect life in Los Angeles in the past as well as the present by illustrating elements that make Los Angeles unique. These include plants and animals native to California and of course LA’s iconic freeway system.

Happy Halloween!

ef.jpgI don’t know about you but when I try carving pumpkins mine never turn out. I always end up with one giant hole in the middle. So this year instead of carving my own pumpkin, I went to see professionally carved pumpkins at the Rise of the Jack O’ Lanterns at the LA Convention Center. With over 5,000 pumpkins on view, these are no ordinary jack o’ lanterns. Intricately carved, many are stacked together to create one giant work of art such as Spiderman or Darth Vader. These are my favorite from the festival.
