Muse of Music, Dance, Drama

1940. George Stanley, Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles.

Granite for this sculpture marking the entry into the Hollywood Bowl was brought from Victorville. Cost of the project came to $100,000. In addition to Muse of Music, Dance, Drama, George Stanley did some bas reliefs on the Bullocks Wilshire building, several figures for the loggia of Scripps College, and "Telephone Symbolized" relief on the telephone building at 740 S. Olive St. Stanley also sculpted the original Oscar statuette, which was designed by Cedric Gibbons.
