Revolutions 2: The Art Of Music At Forest Lawn Museum

Forest Lawn Museum

Forest Lawn Museum

Nestled amongst the soaring cypress trees and calm, rolling hills of Forest Lawn in Glendale is the perhaps unknown but nonetheless charming Forest Lawn Museum. Frankly, I was surprised to learn that a museum exists in this unlikely location, but I must tell you, it is well worth the visit. In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Live Aid, they are featuring a screening of the concert, along with some seminal works of music-related art you don’t want to miss.

Some of the works are immediately recognizable (Alice Cooper’s Welcome To My Nightmare) while others run the gamut from pop art to the more…unusual. Of course Elvis and Michael Jackson are prominently featured here. The museum is a trip back through every era of music from the 50’s right through to the current, and you don’t want to miss it! The location is visually stunning, with picturesque views of Los Angeles and the surrounding park.

This is the last chance to see the exhibition, Tuesday–Sunday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., through August 2.

Forest Lawn Museum is located at Forest Lawn-Glendale, 1712 S. Glendale Boulevard, Glendale. Admission and parking at this renowned Southern California landmark, with its stunning array of art and architecture, is FREE. Visit forestlawn.com or call 800-204-3131 for general information.
