According to the Glendale News-Press, “The Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale is the first in the U.S. to host an exhibit documenting David Bowie's tour of Mexico City 20 years ago with photos of the late musician exploring historic sites and landmarks.
The free exhibit, titled "Among the Mexican Masters," captures Bowie through 40 photographs visiting the pyramids of Teotihuacán, the Frida Kahlo Museum and locations with murals by Mexican artists Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
Rock and jazz photographer Fernando Aceves was assigned to follow Bowie during the musician's show at the Foro Sol Stadium, his only performance ever in Mexico City. "Forest Lawn is very proud to pay homage and represent this amazing exhibit," said museum director and exhibit curator Ana Pescador. It is a great opportunity to find out more about not only the history of Mexico but about David Bowie."
This is a special LA5 At Night event hosted Forest Lawn and Russ Whittenburg – a great opportunity to show members and guests LA5’s leadership in the civic and business life of Los Angeles.
