Our July program will explore Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills and the artworks within the memorial park. Located between Griffith Park and major movie studios, the 400-acre site opened in 1948. Its artistic treasures include the largest historical mosaic in the United States and dozens of bronze and marble sculptures created in the 19th and 20th centuries.
