Today's cheekily-titled Unframed post, "Family Portrait" throws up a little bit of ephemera/history from February 1968 - a photo of 45 artists on the museum's steps. Included in the photo are Ed Ruscha, Robert Irwin, Judy Chicago, Claes Oldenberg, Thornton Ladd, and yes, Frank Gehry. "The occasion was to document, for posterity, an exhibition of Los Angeles County artists’ works that was to go on view in Sacramento’s capitol building later that summer." Unframed has been able to identify 30 of the 45 artists, who come from a variety of media, including painting, architecture, sculpture, fashion, film and graphic design. Can you name the rest?
