Highlighting important recent acquisitions by the Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute, this exhibition features a selection of prints and materials related to <i>Twentysix Gasoline Stations</i> (1963), <i>Some Los Angeles Apartments</i> (1965), and <i>Every Building on the Sunset Strip</i> (1966). Also on view for the first time are contact sheets from his shoot of the Pacific Coast Highway (1974�C75), one of the many streets he has documented extensively since 1965. The exhibition offers a concentrated look at Ruscha's engagement with vernacular architecture, the urban landscape, and car culture. Co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute, this exhibition is part of the initiative Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. <br> <!-- More Info --> <br><a href="/art/exhibitions/focus_ruscha/"><img border="0" src="../images/arrow_more_events.gif" width="7" height="7">&nbsp;Learn more about this exhibition</a><br> <!-- Reservation --> </span>
