This is the catalogue from one of the best art shows I saw this year at the Hammer Museum in LA.  Black Mountain College played a significant role in the movement of avant-garde art, music, dance and poetry.  Bestow et al co-founders couldn’t get enough of this exhibit that was at the Hammer Museum.  We went back several times to see this show.  This book is a must for art lovers!

4.  Raymond Pettibon: Surfers 1985-2015

The works featured in this book are mainly huge chaotic waves and surfers and bits of the artist’s poetry. “ The themes of solitary contemplation and the poetry of nature are ever present in these sweeping waves”.  Bestow et al. is inspired by Venice California and it’s surf culture.  Foreword by Adam Lindemann. Text by Carlo McCormick. This book should be on everyone’s shelf.
