Los Angeles, California
For obvious reasons, (see quote below) I particularly liked artist Edward Ruscha’s response to “hunkering down.” In reading his bio (below) I can see with his love affair for Los Angeles through the decades as depicted in his art and writing why BDA and the history it presents would appeal to the artist. (Not to mention that he most likely came in personal contact with some/many(?) of the surrealist artists named in its pages? (Duchamp, Man Ray, Copley, possibly Sexton, Teske, etc.)
