We went to the opening of NOW DIG THIS at the Hammer Museum last Saturday. It was a blast, we met artist Hank Willis Thomas and chatted with Garth Trinidad about his new art studio and what he thought about the opening of the exhibit.
NOW DIG THIS is curated by Kellie Jones and features the work of Black artists in LA from 1960 - 1980. Painter Charles White's piece Love Letter #1 is the cover of the catalog pictured below. Some highlights for me were Betye Saar and David Hammons but the artist that blew me away was sculptor Fred Eversley.
