A LONG-OVERDUE SURVEY OF UNUSUAL
ART FUELED BY THE OCCULT, THE MYTHOLOGICAL, THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL, AND THE PSYCHEDELIC
The exhibition Beyond The Pleasure Dome: The Lost Occult World of Burt Shonberg is currently on view at the Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick in Cleveland, Ohio, through November 1, 2021. It’s the first solo survey of the work of the Los Angeles-based, visionary artist Burt Shonberg (1933-1977) to be presented in more than 50 years and, in fact, only the second such exhibition ever. Curious about how this exhibition came about, Sarah Fensom, brutjournal’s U.S.A. West Coast bureau chief, recently caught up with its organizers, as well as with some interesting individuals who knew or who had worked with Shonberg during his lifetime.
