The historically interesting West Adams area of Los Angeles has Craftsman style bungalows, Victorian houses, cottages, and mansions. The West Adams Heritage Association tour on Saturday included 12 diverse locations. As if the architecture alone is not enough of a treat for the eye, each one featured contemporary artwork by local artists. In some cases the homes are owned by the artists represented. In others, the work of a few different artists were collected together. I've included some photos below. The photos are a bit random. Since I'm still nailing down what colors to paint my house I had a tendency to wander off photographing odd bits of trim and sections of homes where all the colors intersected, while missing more obvious photo opportunities. A list of all the artists whose work was displayed on the tour, along with samples of their work, can be found at the WAHA website.
Later on in the afternoon I had the pleasure to meet up with Dianne Poinski while she was in town. I've known Dianne through her blog for the past year of so, and it was a pleasure to meet her in person.
