SACRAMENTO, CA.- This June, the Crocker Art Museum brings to Sacramento "Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose," a one-of-a-kind exhibition of works by artists who have been prominently featured in the best-selling contemporary art magazine Hi-Fructose. In 2005, husband-and-wife artists Daniel “Attaboy” Seifert and Annie Owens set out to increase the public’s access to the works of many emerging, underground, and “lowbrow” artists they enjoyed, and founded the pioneering magazine Hi-Fructose. This summer, the Crocker Art Museum is showing works by 51 of the foremost “New Contemporary” artists to be featured in Hi-Fructose. [More]
