Politi Square

It's the centennial for Leo Politi, the artist who lived in Angelino Heights, known in part for remarkable children's books and for his love of Bunker Hill. Politi already has a strange, lovely, underused section of Elysian Park named after him, but he's getting more name-space in Echo Park this year -- the corner of Sunset and Echo Park Ave., which will be called Leo Politi Square. Cecilia Rasmussen wrote about it in a Sunday Times story. One hundred is an important number, and there are also events celebrating the man, the art and the number 100, including a presentation by the artist's son at the Echo Park Historical Society quarterly meeting on February 13 (7 p.m. Williams Hall at Barlow Hospital, 2000 Stadium Way).
