Where Trojans are in bloom - Los Angeles Times
Researching this story for the LAT led me to a very cool poetic art piece by Jenny Holzer, one of my favorite artists. Tucked away on the far south side of the campus, "Blacklist," is her homage to the Hollywood Ten, screenwriters who were banned from Hollywood for their political affiliations. Each writer has a quote etched in granite--all surround a fountain within the school's sculpture garden. While the weather is still cool, Exposition Park and the USC campus to the north are well worth a visit for architecture (Frank Gehry) and art (Robert Graham's Olympic sculptures).
