Bringing the Desert back to Hollywood
In a little more than a week, we'll be opening an exhibition for one of the Joshua Tree community's favorite sons, Bobby Furst. Bobby came to assemblage relatively late in life–after a celebrated career in photojournalism. Seeing his work now, fifteen years later, it's evident that this is what he was born to do. Furst's collectors are as many as his exhibitions are rare. Make no mistake: this is an event not to be missed. This collection of work, (titled, "Don't Push Me,") was hand picked by Billy Shire to recreate the look and feel of Bobby's desert studio. It'll be a veritable Burning Man reunion!
We'll also have a collection of customized Rat Fink statues and original Ed "Big Daddy" Roth art (and tribute pieces from like-minded individuals) along with original Fink toys, stickers and collectibles. It all happens on June 7th!
