Twentysix Gasoline Stations
Published in April of 1963, Twentysix Gasoline Stations was one of the first artist's books. Ed Ruscha was the artist. 2013 marked 50 years since it was produced.
That was the entire prompt given to contributors. They were asked to respond to this prompt in any way that seemed appropriate. The images, galleries, projects, artwork and writing here document a collection of thoughtful and wildly different responses to the prompt.
The hopes and ideas we pull from the ether are no different (at their core) today than they were 50 years ago. Everything and nothing matters, which is just as it should be.
Thank you for joining us.
