Orange Grove Bistro: Lamb's Lounge

The Friends of the Oviatt Library invite you to take a stroll back in time and join us for a buffet luncheon and presentation by Author/Photographer Robert Landau

Rock 'N' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip book coverInspired by the hand-painted billboards in his Hollywood neighborhood, Landau grabbed his camera and began shooting. Decades later, Landau rediscovered his Kodachromes, the only extensive collection of photographs that document those iconic billboards. Impassioned, he set out to document the history of this unique art form; interviewing the artists, record producers, designers, and painters who shaped those placards. His resulting book brings fresh insight to the collaborative process, the culture of the day, and its lasting impact on the world.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
