"These people have been the stewards of Watts Towers all these years and have a tremendous sense of ownership to them. So while superstars like Walt Disney may be thought of as the consummate 20th-century Los Angeles hero, for those living on 107th Street and nearby, it's Simon Rodia." — WSJ
One of my favorite cultural landmarks of Los Angeles, Watts Towers, goes on yet another restoration. Still, we need more Angelinos to visit the Towers.
"Now the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the city's Department of Cultural Affairs are working on a plan to restore Rodia's sculpture and, in so doing, to get Angelenos more interested in the landmark. Most visitors to the towers are now from outside the city—often from overseas, like their creator himself."
