Yvette Hammond, Carl Lindstrom and Paul Strouse of ReVamp LA magazine

Revamp LA was started in Los Angeles with the goal of providing a platform for independent, creative businesses to make their presence known. The publication strives to revitalize the gene pool of an otherwise stagnant industry and change peoples concepts of what doing business and making connections is all about. Climbing the ladder now means building your own and through cross promotion and collaboration the vast microcosm of independent artists can now create the opportunities that are rightfully theirs. Yvette Hammond and Carl Lindstrom (BA and BFA alums) are now joined by Paul Strouse (BFA alum) in the creation of Issue Number 2 of Revamp LA Magazine.

Hal Lum at Phoenix Brighton (UK)

Hal Lum (BFA, 1967) included in a three-person exhibition in Phoenix Brighton Gallery (United Kingdom) 'OUT OF THE BLUE' 4 July – 16 August 2009

"Hal Lum's vivid and witty compositions reflect a delight in encountering people, places and experiences. Focusing on the process of drawing and the use of fluid and spontaneous gesture, his influences range from Japanese pottery to minimal sculpture, high, low, outsider and ethnic art. Lum states, 'Art is like a big open arena that takes in the smallest, most intimate details of a person's life and the widest expanse that is the world and universe . . . I like to keep an open mind, to open the senses and take it all in.'" P.B.
