Available April 2015. Bohemian Highways: Art & Culture Abide Then Divide Along the California Coast
For more than a century, California has been a place where people come to live unbound by convention. Beginning shortly after World War II, artists, writers, architects, performers, spiritual seekers, freethinkers, political dissenters, and social revolutionists gathered in the state, intent on creating a new way of seeing and interacting with the world. The result was an unstoppable counterculture that blazed its way across the next four decades of the American tableau, forever changing the national and international spirt of art and culture.
Learn more about the fascinating individuals and groups who created an art, architecture, music, and, often, a productive creative mayhem along the entire Pacific coast, from the remote reaches of northern California, south to the beaches of San Diego.
Bohemian Highways is published in conjunction with the 2015 California Preservation Foundation Annual Conference.
