Andy Warhol’s San Diego Surf

Winter Waves

In 1968, Andy Warhol and several of his art denizens moved into a house in La Jolla with the idea of making a film about surfers. While the film earned a title, San Diego Surf, it eschewed an audience. Warhol abandoned the film feeling it lacked an edge and his involvement in making films quickly waned after being shot by Valerie Solanas. The film has been restored by The Andy Warhol Foundation and will screen at MoMA this month the 23rd through the 28th.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
