This has been a very successful attempt to organize an attitude of mind, to state a way of living in
terms of the objects that create the environment within a house. It is a gathering together of many
things for the purpose not only of illustrating a theme, but in order to bring into reality the means of
achieving pleasant informality in present-day servantless living. In general the tone derives from the
implications of the title given to it, and the work itself leans heavily upon the enormous background
developed through the years by designers, artists, and architects working in Western America who
have been influenced by the patterns of the living devices of the Pacific cultures.

Robert Rauschenberg "Untitled (Combine) 1958"
This is the cover piece.
The back of the cover is the back of the painting.
It was a nice choice.

Boomerang hosted a showing of artwork by Ruth and Toza Radakovich. The event also
provided a setting for material that will be used in an upcoming documentary about the couple.
More about the Radakovich documentary can be found here.
Arline Fisch, looking hip and getting some attention from the camera.
Radakovich pieces are never for sale, they weren't tonight either.
Anything by the Radakoviches is rare, but a lamp?
This is what I wanted to take home.
I knew I recognized it from an old catalog.
How often do you see a Radakovich sculpture walking down the street?
Danah Fayman showed up bearing a gift, unfortunately not for me.
Toza Radakovich airplane sculpture.
Mrs Fayman said it was made for the La Jolla Art Museum Christmas Tree (most likely in the 60s).
The sculpture went to Jean Radakovich.
I guess Toza and Ruth's daughter deserves it more than me.
