'Q' is for Quadrangle (abc Wednesday)
"Commisioned by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Women's Board, this large-scale, contemporary art installation by Mullican represents a complex array of signs, symbols, and patterns. Incorporated into the Museum's architecture, its centerpiece is two oversized canvas rubbings (acrylic and oil pencil) that are mounted, facing one another, in a light-filled atrium. Painted in black and the primary colors red and yellow, each panel is divided into two halves: the top portions present a constellation of symbols, many based upon international sign language, while the bottom parts refer to Santa Barbara, identified by its city grid and by images of its recognizable landscape."Guarding art, SBMA (1 May 2010)

I'm away again, this time for a really quick business trip to Seattle...but I did have a chance to see one of my favorite buildings - Seattle Central Library. The whole structure is visually interesting and well worth a visit.

Neptune in Malaga Plaza (Monochrome Monday)
One of the most notable Palos Verdes landmarks is the Neptune fountain - a 3/4 scale replica of the one in Bologna, Italy. Here is what Walter Swindell Davis (an notable Los Angeles architect - 1887-1973) said about the aquisition of the fountain in the "oral history" interview by Florence Sullivan (spring of 1969):
Sullivan: When was the statue of Neptune erected? There were only a few buildings there [at the plaza] when that was done.
Davis: Cheney was responsible for the fountain. There was an antique dealer down on Figueroa between Wilshire Blvd. and 7th Street. The depression had caught him with the fountain of Neptune. Cheney made him a propostion to trade it for some lots down on Paseo del Mar that runs along the ocean... Cheney traded three or four lots for the fountain. It was a wonderful bargain... To erect the fountain cost 50 to 75 thousand, they got the statue and its base of four Nereids. The steps and pavement had to be carved in Italy and shipped here.
