The Cool School

Hosted by:
ARTS Missoula
ARTS Missoula Presents: a series of free screenings which celebrate the creation of art for art's sake.

How do you build an art scene from scratch — and not lose your soul in the process? The Cool School is the story of the Ferus Gallery, which nurtured Los Angeles’s first significant post-war artists between 1957 and 1966. Operating out of a small storefront, the gallery hosted debut exhibitions and served as a general launching point for Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses and Robert Irwin, among many other artists. By the time it closed in 1966, the gallery had also played a role in solidifying the careers of many of New York’s brightest talents.
