Weekly Round-Up: On the Road Edition, Part Two

This week's Flipboard cover is an Instagram pic I took while stopped in traffic on the 405
HIghway in Los Angeles (without GPS in my car and a map in the trunk!)
Has it already been a whole week? I have just returned home after several exhilarating days in Los Angeles on a research trip to both the UCLA Film and Television Archive and the Margaret Herrick Library at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. As part of my project I was looking at archival documents, posters, scripts, and yes films!, from the period of the late 1920's and early 1930's related to avant-garde filmmaker Paul Fejos. It was fantastic getting to look at materials from this era, and all of the librarians and archivists I encountered were incredibly helpful and very patient with my questions and queries. I even tried to get into the spirit of the visit by staying at a hotel that used to be an apartment house for silent cinema starts-- it is a great little hotel in Beverly Hills called The Crescent, I highly recommend it. While in Los Angeles, I was able to see some great art exhibitions and later this week I will blog about my visit to the Getty Museum and Research Institute, a must see for any art and architecture lover visiting the area.

Between visits, I was watching my social media feeds and saved several articles, links, and videos into this week's Flipbook.
