Great night last night at the 50th Anniversary Art Show opening for the classic 1964 surf movie ‘Endless Summer’, hosted by ARTSEEN, Bruce Brown Films & Esquire Magazine. I was one of 9 artists, including famed ‘Endless Summer’ cover artist John van Hamersveld, to exhibit works honoring the film. It was a fun night. Here are some shots of the opening… Exhibition runs through Labor Day Weekend. Info below.
“In 1964 a young filmmaker named Bruce Brown set out on a quest following two surfers on a surfing trip around the world. As the title suggests if one had enough time and money it would be possible to follow the summer around the world, making it “endless”. He created a timeless classic, an iconic film that inspired generations and is beloved by millions.
Art Seen & Esquire present The Endless Summer 50th Anniversary Art Exhibition. Inspired by the Endless Summer film, the exhibition will feature a group of 8 celebrated artists. John Van Hamersveld, Woody Risk, Laddie John Dill, Dev N Gosha, Ryan Snow, James Verbicky, Miguel Osuna and Brad Howe sill present original works of art inspired by the film.
