Rescuing the Watts Towers LA's budget crisis has reached into the LAPD and the DWP. Now it's threatening one of the city's cultural treasures. Deferred maintenance on the Watts Towers has been estimated at $5 million, and the city can barely come up with $200,000. But the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has offered expert help and the promise to raise private money . Melody Kanschat is President of LACMA.
