First Look: The Berlin Wall On Wilshire

Couldn’t resist detouring on the bike ride to work this morning for a chance to behold an amazing piece of history in the form of sections of the Berlin Wall  on Wilshire Boulevard across from LACMA (map), courtesy the Wende Museum. Upon arrival I found 8 of what will ultimately be 10 panels, and I was pleased to find them readily accessible instead of roped off and removed from close contact.

Once all 10 are up it will reportedly be the world’s longest length of the wall outside of Berlin, and it’s available for viewing through November 14.

  1. On Sunday, November 8th, there will be a ceremonial toppling of an art wall installed in the middle of Wilshire Blvd. The wall will have murals by artists Shepard Fairey, Kent Twitchell, Thierry Noir, among others.
