"Whatever Happened to the Future!"
Mark Vallen 1980
Signed Silkscreen print
15" x 16" inches - $100

Here's what Vallen said about his artwork:

"When I created this print people had began to wonder aloud about the future and their stake in it. Suddenly, the chilling refrain of the Sex Pistols 'No Future' began to have a ring of truth to it. Now we're in the 21st Century, and strangely enough the same question is still being asked. Originally a street poster, my artwork was eventually published as a popular cover for the L.A. Weekly newspaper in 1980 - the year of the poster's creation."

Vallen's print is included in Under the Big Black Sun: California Art 1974-1981, a comprehensive survey of California artists held at the MOCA Geffen Contemporary in L.A., Oct. 1 2011 through Feb. 13, 2012.
