This is one of several 1984 Olympic Games posters by Los Angeles artist Ernie Barnes, which he did for the Artist's Series commis­sioned by the Los Angeles Olympic Organiz­ing Committee (LAOOC). The work captures the diversity of Los Angeles neighborhoods in the shadow of one of the principal venues of the 1984 games: the Los Angeles Coliseum, which was built for the 1932 Olympic Games. The records of the LAOOC are housed in the Department of Special Collections in the Uni­versity Research Library at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The department holds more than 350,000 rare books, 30 mil­lion manuscripts and archival collections, 4 million photographs, and half a million prints and drawings. Those attending ALA's Midwin­ter Meeting in L.A. are invited to visit this and other departments at the libraries of UCLA.
