Buchbeschreibung Washington, D.C. : Spacemaker Press, 1997. Buchzustand: Sehr gut. 63 S. Einband leicht berieben. - On December 23, 1926, the heiress Aline Barnsdall deeded to the City of Los Angeles the summit and upper slopes of Olive Hill, in East Hollywood. Her gift, including about eight acres of gardens, groves, orchards, and a house by Frank Lloyd Wright, was offered as a park for the arts and, ideally, as a dreamlike setting for a child's artistic development. In the hopeful vision of its donor, the park was meant to grow in cultural significance, eventually to contain a theatre as well as an art club and recreational center, all clustered on a unique little hill from which the qualities of beauty, truth and freedom would radiate. Inscribed on the park's dedicatory plaque to the donor's father, T.JN. Barnsdall, were the lines: "Our fathers mined for the gold of this country. We should mine for its beauty."
