Tiki Farm “10 Years of Tiki Mugs”
Anybody who knows even the slightest bit about the immensely popular resurgent Southern California Tiki movement is likely well aware of Tiki Farm. For 10 years, they’ve worked their tails off to reach the pinnacle position in the world of Tiki, providing Tiki enthusiasts worldwide with their most coveted artifact… the beloved object d’art known simply as the Tiki mug. On display will be the entirety of mugs produced by Tiki Farm to-date… we’re talking approximately 2,000 different mugs (plus bowls, shots, decanters & flasks) on display! When you enter into the faux lava rock grotto entry in the front gallery, eight-foot-tall Tiki Gods will greet you & loom over you as you peruse this most impressive exhibition. Founded in the Fall of 2000, Tiki Farm is back at La Luz de Jesus for their third and most significant show to-date. Tiki Farm founder Holden Westland will be in attendance, the Dynotones will be keepin’ the joint jumpin’ with their driving Surf Sounds and DJ Big Tiki Dude will be spinnin’ an eclectic mix of Exotica, Hawaiian Style, Hapa Haole & Surf tunes. And of course, the mai-tai’s will be flowin’! Limited edition signed & numbered event posters by Dirty Donny will also be available. Below is a selesction of show-exclusive, limited-edition glaze variations of Tiki Farm mugs which will be on sale at the event. We anticipate brisk sales of these mugs as is always the case with Tiki Farm limited runs, and since Holden didn’t attend Tiki Oasis this year, the new mugs are all debuting at this show! So if you’re free, Saturday evening, October 16th, we recommend that you head on out to this amazing show. The exhibition runs through the end of October.
