Currently on exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego is Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface. The show exhibits a collection of work from Los Angeles based artists in the 1960s and 1970s during a time period when many artists were focused on light and creating various retinal phenomena with sculptures, paintings and installations.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
