The Sierra Club was founded ‪#‎onthisday‬ in 1892 and John Muir was elected as its first President. In its first conservation campaign, the Sierra Club lead an effort to defeat a proposed reduction in the boundaries of Yosemite National Park.

Carleton Watkins made 30 mammoth plate and 100 stereograph views that were among the first photographs of Yosemite seen in the East. Partly on the strength of Watkins's photographs, President Abraham Lincoln signed the 1864 bill that declared the valley inviolable, thus paving the way for the National Parks system.

The Visions of the Knight Tondal, is a medieval tale about a wealthy Irish knight whose soul embarks on a journey through hell, purgatory, and heaven, during which he learns the wages of sin and the value of penitence. This sumptuous manuscript is the only known illuminated copy of the text and contains 20 miniatures. In this scene, Tondal's guardian angel shows the soul of the knight a burning valley in which murderers' should are cooked on a iron lid. Above it the slim, naked figures of the damned rise and fall in a graceful ballet or torment.

Leaf from Les Visions du chevalier Tondal, 1475, Simon Marmion

Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Twenty-six thousand soldiers were killed or wounded in the Battle of Antietam on September 17, 1862, after which Confederate General Robert E. Lee was forced to retreat to Virginia. Just two weeks after the victory, President and Commander-in-Chief Abraham Lincoln conferred with General McClernand and Allan Pinkerton, Chief of the nascent Secret Service, who had organized espionage missions behind Confederate lines.

Loved the amazing architecture. Shadows abound. The travertine blocks contain fossils for kids and adults to find. The gardens are beautiful. A great place to visit. Oh..and the art is vast and amazing.

This is a must see if you're in LA. For a $15 fee for parking, an entire carload can experience what the Getty Center has to offer. A great deal! The art exhibits, views of LA and the restaurant has good tasting food to boot. I wish we could have spent more time here. I also like the openness of the center as well.

I love the Getty Museum! I always have a lovely time, no matter how often I come. Their art collection is vast and they are constantly switching paintings and galleries, so there is always something new to look forward to. You take a self-guided tour with an iPod filled with interesting facts about the paintings and artists; you can also go on a group tour with a curator, or just wonder around the museum. The garden is very pretty with a wide assortment of flowers so something is always in bloom. There is a sketching room where you can pretend to be an artist (or show off your artistic skills) with various pieces of art to draw. The large windows give you beautiful views of Los Angeles and Santa Monica. Parking is $15 before 5 pm and $10 after, but the museum entry is free. The Metro 761 takes you straight to the museum if you don’t want to pay for parking.

I love to come here to explore the beautiful grounds, the incredible art, the amazing views, and just to get my cultural fix. This should be a must see for all tourists in the L.A. area, as well as local folk. I come here to see the exhibitions off and on as well. Recommend this place highly, and you don't even have to be an art person per se to appreciate all that this place offers. Seriously.

Absolutely one of the must-visit places in la. The complex is beautiful with hedge maze, lawn and architectural statues. The art collection is vast and the museum always introduces new explosions as well. Truly appreciate such opportunity to freely enjoy the art and spend quality time.
