Kustom Kulture returns at the Huntington Beach Art Center

Lucire had the pleasure of attending tonight’s VIP opening of Kustom Kulture II, presented by the Huntington Beach Art Center, a 20-year anniversary tribute to an original exhibition presented at the Laguna Art Museum in 1993.
   Curated by C. R. Stecyk, Paul Frank and Greg Escalante, the exhibition directs a contemporary look at Kustom car, motorcycle, surf culture and related art from the traditions of Von Dutch, Big Daddy Roth, Robert Williams, Rick Griffin, Basil Wolverton, Margaret Keane, Don Ed Hardy, Billy F. Gibbons and many others.
   Outsider royalty was on hand, including legendary psychedelia dealer Jacaeber Kastor, who posed with Robert Williams, artist Anthony Ausgang and costume designer Alexis Scott, among the luminaries.
   Kudos to VANS, who sponsored the event, which exhibits at the Center through August 31. The limited-edition hand-printed event poster looks like a great opportunity as a collectible.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
