    LA artists reign supreme in the '60s

    I think one of the main reasons Los Angeles turned into the number one major player in the art world between the 60's was because many artists took advantage of the new technologies like fast-drying acrylic paint, Verifax machines, and Polaroid instant cameras they had available.

    Also, another reason why southern Cali (particularly LA) art and artists were so popular and well received was because they reflected the struggles and movements happening in the 60's of feminists, chicanos, African Americans, and gays.
