Brand Library Renovations in Glendale, CA

Got out to see the new renovations at the elegant Brand Library this weekend in Glendale.
My friend Srboojie Amadjian was exhibiting in the new gallery space in a group of 5 women. The artist gallery space had not changed much during the 2 year renovation but the main library was really altered and very remarkable.
The new renovations were really interesting. They had taken off the cottage cheese texture on the ceilings and found lathe and plaster frescos below that were pretty beat up. They framed a few of the pieces to show the inspiration and had recreations of the designs painted on the ceilings. Each room had it's own palette. As I looked from room to room, I could see through the opening to the others and the combinations were really magnificent. Go see for yourself at the Brand Library in Glendale, CA.
