MILK AND HONEY: CONTEMPORARY ART IN CALIFORNIA highlights new work by contemporary artists who are aesthetically and regionally joined through a variety of mediums and demographics. By showcasing unknown and emerging artists alongside established icons who all call California home, MILK AND HONEY recognizes the fact that region and lifestyle directly influence the working process and ultimately the state of contemporary imagery.

The book celebrates a group of contemporary artists with roots across various areas, including graffiti art, surf, and skate culture, and other uniquely Californian influences. As is evident in that highly acclaimed museum show―as well as the current Pacific Standard Time Show throughout Los Angeles―California affects trends and sets the stage nationally and internationally for some of the most creative art being made in the world today.

More than 50 artists featured, including: Ed Ruscha, Ed Templeton, Cleon Peterson, Megan Whitmarsh, Sage Vaughn, RETNA, Piero Golia, and Ye Rin Mok.
