Elizabeth Ferrell, associate professor of art history at Arcadia University, introduces her new book, About The Rose: Creation and Community in Jay DeFeo’s Circle. Ferrell examines the artistic exchange inspired by The Rose, the monumental painting that San Francisco artist Jay DeFeo (1929–1989) worked on almost exclusively from 1958 to 1966. The book explores the film, photography, painting, and poetry created by Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner, Wally Hedrick, and Michael McClure in dialogue with The Rose.
