For all my fellow Angelenos, one of my favorite figure painters, Barkley L. Hendricks is having his long overdue FIRST career retrospective properly entitled, "Birth of Cool." It opens this weekend at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Opening reception: Friday, May 15, 7 to 11 p.m.
I already created an event for it, but it seems difficult to search events on this site, so I thought this would be an easier way to get the word out. But if you live in Philadelphiai or Houston, the show is traveling to you next!
"Birth of the Cool" has been named one of Vogue Magazine’s top 25 cultural events of the year.
