After much research, planning and anticipation, we finally hit the road on March 25th and headed south, fast. Our goal for Western Edge is to undertake an epic road-trip to document 40 contemporary West Coast artists between Tijuana, Mexico and Vancouver, Canada and we are off to a good start. We left SF and spent our first night in Bakersfield where we visited abstract painter Nano Rubio. Then dove into a few days in Tijuana where we visited three artists. Back in san Diego we met Kelsey Brookes, whose interview we will publish next week (stay tuned). After San Diego, we went east into the desert of Anza Borrego and the Salton Sea where we happened upon some unexpected adventures. Nikki wrote a great Field Note about our time in the desert, complete with photos of the renowned Slab City prom night!
