Backyard Oasis: The Swimming Pool in Southern California Photography, 1945–1982
January 21, 2012 – May 27, 2012
Hockney photos, beefcake, Marylin, Liberace arm wrestling Rock Hudson, glorious mid-century architecture: this is a mesmerizing exhibit. The home movies of movie stars and their often pokey little pools are the biggest surprise.
