LIFE ON A STRING: THE YALE PUPPETEERS AND THE TURNABOUT THEATRE

In 1998, the Los Angeles Public Library became custodian of a vast collection of ephemera chronicling the careers of the Yale Puppeteers and their Turnabout Theatre. For the first time, these programs, posters, scrapbooks, costumes, props, and marionettes are on exhibition. 'Life on a String: The Yale Puppeteers and the Turnabout Theatre' presents the life's work of these three men who forged a professional and deeply personal bond that lasted a lifetime and who invited the city of Los Angeles to turnabout!

JO MORA: MAPMAKER OF THE AMERICAN WEST

This exhibit presents a deeper look at the work of the great California-based artist and cartographer Joseph Jacinto Mora. The many talents of the man are seen here with artifacts, drawings, maps and historical essays that were created in his long and fruitful career as painter, sculpture, illustrator, photographer and historian of the southwest. Mora’s reputation as a master of pictorial cartography continues to grow and here you are able to see a large share of his cartes in one space.
