Benton, Ramos, and Riley

Artwork from the 1960s has made a lasting mark on the California art scene. Spark takes a special look at the artistic legacy of this celebrated decade, catching up with three local luminaries that burst onto the scene then with their own unique visions: sculptor Fletcher Benton, painter Mel Ramos and composer Terry Riley.
