In Africa, Europe and Asia, many of history's greatest artists worked to design and beautify temples, churches and other spiritual centers. In the United States, our finest painters, sculptors, illustrators and animators have focused their talents on customizing and celebrating this country's primary place, and object, of worship — the automobile. There was a time when such auto-erotic fixations — as well as comic books and imagery of skateboarding and surfing — were considered merely lowbrow, but the group show "Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School", in the Armand Hammer Foundation Gallery, reaffirms the connections between Kustom Kulture and contemporary art via work by Robert Williams, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Mark Ryden, Sara Ray, Chaz Bojorquez, Ron English, Shag, Laurie Lipton, Robert Crumb, Anthony Ausgang, Patricia Piccinini and Gary Panter.
