Hollywood doesn’t reserve its magic just for its movies; the hills themselves are dotted with marvels, from sleepy stucco estates haunted by legendary escape artists to space-age homes that wait, sentinel-like, for a future not yet realized.
One such hidden gem is a secret sculpture garden, nestled just beneath the iconic Hollywood sign. On rare occasion, Dr. Robby Gordon opens his home for private tours, as he did a few weeks ago for Chase Sapphire® cardmembers and Atlas Obscura guests. Located on a steep and winding road and obscured by an overflow of flowering vines, the sculpture garden sits behind Dr. Gordon’s home. A collection of both his own artwork and the work of those he admires, the garden is a living gallery of dynamic, modern pieces.
Visitors wandered around the tight, terraced gardens and throughout Dr. Gordon’s home, where practically every surface is covered in art. As the sun set, guests enjoyed a champagne toast and watched as the L.A skyline lit up like a million little stars. Behind them, the vibrant colors of Dr. Robby’s magical garden glowed against the Hollywood Hills.
