Thursday, December 3, 2009 The Berlin Wall

"Wall Along Wilshire" at the Wende Museum, Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles - photographed on Thursday, December 3, 2009

The city of Los Angeles and the Wende Museum announced a project back on August 13, the largest commemoration of the fall of the Berlin Wall outside Germany. They built one on Wilshire Boulevard, right in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and on November 9, twenty years to the day in 1989 when the original wall fell, everyone tore this one down too. It went up and came down in the span of a few hours traffic problems of course. And a lot of it was Styrofoam.

But the Wende Museum has ten newly acquired segments of the original Berlin Wall, now the new "Wall Along Wilshire" painted by Kent Twitchell and Thierry Noir and others. Thierry Noir is the French artist who lived in Berlin and left his work, starting in 1984, on the "free" side of the original wall. See www.wallproject.org for more, or see this news item.

This wall, these segments of the original Berlin Wall, will become part of The Wende Museum's permanent collection soon. But for now, they stand on Wilshire, for everyone.
