Curbed LA caught the installation of some panels from the Berlin Wall at 5900 Wilshire Blvd., across from LACMA: "The exhibition is part of Culver City-based Wende Museum's commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Wall... When finished (a total of 10 panels will go up), the exhibition will constitute the largest concentration of Berlin Wall panels outside of Europe."

It will be on display through November 14th.

On November 8th, there will be a ceremony to commemorate the 1989 destruction of the wall, according to Councilman Tom LaBonge's office.
