The late and great Justin Van Hoy made some monumental waves during his brief life here on planet earth. After co-founding THIS gallery, he authored Milk and Honey; an elegant hardcover exposé on contemporary artists living in California. I was lucky enough to be his friend and be detected by his creative radar. Shortly after Justin's passing, THIS gallery shut it's doors and passed the torch. On August 7th, Slow Culture will very respectively tip it's hat toward the momentum created through their physical space and predecessors. Milk and Honey brings together many of the artists included in the book and honors the work and workers who cleared the path for much more to come.
