Bohemian Crossroads
Bohemian Crossroads: Art & Culture Collide Then Subside on the Monterey Penisula.

Discover the interconnected band of bohemians who created an artist’s paradise along the Pacific coast, south of San Francisco and north of Los Angeles, in this collection of contemporary writing and vintage articles. This unique publication (book, journal, and slipcase), created in association with the California Preservation Foundation, explores California’s Monterey Peninsula as a crossroads of art, culture, architecture, literature, and society in the first half of the twentieth century. A group of prominent academics and historians has contributed essays, articles, and excerpts that discuss the lives and artistic endeavors of notable residents of the region during this fascinating period.

“Terrific and relevant … Excellent … Novel information … One of the most enjoyable presentations at the conference … Wow! Great! … Wonderful list of artists, writers, and activists to give new meaning to historic properties in the Monterey Peninsula, with new information about these people who left the area.”  Reviews from the California Preservation Foundation Annual Conference.
