Miracle Mile : Sculpture Garden to Open

The new contemporary sculpture garden at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open to the public Sunday.

Located directly east of the museum's Wilshire Boulevard entrance, the garden will include nine large-scale outdoor sculptures by Alice Aycock, Ellsworth Kelly, Henry Moore and others.

According to a museum official, the centerpiece of the garden is Alexander Calder's three-piece mobile "Hello Girls," commissioned for the museum's opening in 1965. Situated in a curving reflecting pool, the mobile has brightly colored paddles that are moved by jets of water.

The museum is at 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. For museum hours and other information, call (213) 857-6000.
