1. Now Dig This!
Really glad Jenny invited me to go to the Hammer Museum today. Now Dig This! is a wonderful window into art in Los Angeles by the disenchanted and often under looked community (black + women + minorities). The story of these artist is inspiring and I enjoyed being introduced to a phenomenal body of work. Their zingiest is one that cannot be overlooked and their reaction to the world around them is something we can all learn from in our current time.
i like u: Charles White, Betye Saar, John Outterbridge, Women's Building, learning about redlining, Noah Purifoy, Sister Karen Boccalero/Self Help Graphics, Fred Eversley, etc.
