Not So Standard: Graphic Art of Ed Ruscha | March 25th, 7:00pm
Ruscha has been called the “hipster humorist of California cool.” Since his travels in the 1960s over Route 66 from Oklahoma City to California, he has inserted the vocabulary of roadside America into his art, demonstrating a “with-it” attitude in his life and an edge to his art. Using letters and words, Ruscha explores the formal questions of contemporary art and society.
Marsha Holm, a docent from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will discuss Ed Ruscha’s work at the Legion of Honor.
