'Oz' Expert: If Ever Oh Ever a Wiz There Was

‘Oz’ Expert: If Ever Oh Ever a Wiz There Was
There’s no yellow brick road to find the way, but starting Friday the Los Angeles Central Library is transforming itself into the wonderful land of Oz. Through Feb. 24 the Library’s Getty Gallery will be home to “A Century of Oz,” an exhibition featuring more than 400 items related to L. Frank Baum’s classic stories.
Celebrating the centennial of the publication of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” the exhibition is presenting what apparently is the greatest number of Oz material ever publicly displayed. Among the rare items will be the Wicked Witch’s hourglass and a Munchkin costume from the classic 1939 film, a fine copy of the first Oz book and the first editions of Spanish-language Oz books. All the items come from the Willard Carroll Collection, considered the world’s finest.
