On Saturday, February 21st, history was being made at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. They opened its doors for an exclusive exhibition viewing of Robert Williams SLANG Aesthetics! & 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz. The exhibition was curated by Andrew Hosner of (Thinkspace Gallery) and Gary Pressman of (Copro Gallery). It featured close to one hundred artists who have contributed to the success of the publication. If you’re not familiar with the name Robert Williams, he’s the founder of Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine. He also help produced Zap Comix, a underground comix series which was originally part of the youth counterculture of the late 1960s. The experience at the exhibition was amazing, there was all sorts of cool art from contemporary, to street art, and even some crazy sculptures. The most impressive pieces were the hyper-realistic sculpture of Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol.

Both exhibitions will remain on view through April 19th, 2015.
