Santa Monica Library Mural a Click Away
The Santa Monica Library has a glimpse of the past that you can view online.
The library’s new website features the history of the 1935 mural by Stanton Macdonald Wright, a sliding presentation of its 38 panels depicting 160 historical and mythological figures from primitive man to 1930s Hollywood. Following its conservation in 2005, the Library Mural was re-installed in the new Main Library, which opened in January 2006.
For the conservationists among you, there's a page of the site that describes and shows before and after photos.
