May Company Wilshire

When it opened, the gleaming May Company building was instantly heralded as the western gateway to the Miracle Mile, beckoning to motorists with an enormous gold-tiled cylinder at the corner of Fairfax Avenue. What was once the finest department store on the Miracle Mile is also the city's grandest remaining example of Streamline Moderne.

For information about events and exhibits in the former May Company building, contact Los Angeles County Museum of Art at (323) 857-6000.
