Ed Ruscha and the Great American West

Docent Talk
Part II of the American West Series
Tuesday, July 19
2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join FAMSF docent Marsha Holm as she surveys the life and unique perspective of this American icon.  In 1956, at the age of 18, Ed Ruscha left his home in Oklahoma and drove a 1950 Ford sedan to Los Angeles, where he had been accepted to Chouinard Art Institute. His trip roughly followed the fabled Route 66 through the Southwest, which featured many of the sights—auto repair shops, billboards, and long stretches of roadway punctuated by telephone poles—that would provide him with artistic subjects for decades to come.

To coincide with the de Young exhibit: July 16–October 9, 2016
