- Rocker/designer Kevin Reagan and Juxtapoz‘s Greg Escalante co-curate this survey of images by Alex Steinweiss. In 1939, the Columbia Records packaging designer revolutionized the music industry with a simple idea: album covers should have art on them. Alongside Steinweiss’ singular covers, paintings, and collages, the gallery shows an eclectic array of work by contemporary artists, ranging from the compelling, intricate sci-fi noir of David Trulli to the exuberant pop surrealism of Anthony Ausgang.
