While walking around my hometown, West Hollywood, California, and the surrounding area, I was amazed at the number of interesting front yards and courtyards. This was in the early 2000’s. Some have changed, some are no longer accessible, and some no longer exist.

Here is a sampling of what I discovered. They were exhibited in 2003 as Yard Work, curated by Joseph De Mario, at Bakery Art Exhibitions, The Jazz Bakery, Culver City, CA.
