Los Angeles artist Jerry McMillan designed the catalog for the “Faculty ’68” exhibition at the UCI Art Gallery in the spring 1968. McMillan was a childhood friend of artist Ed Ruscha and musician and song writer Mason Williams, growing up in Oklahoma City. After high school, the three friends drove to Los Angeles, following the iconic route 66 west. McMillan and Ruscha were roomates in an apartment in Hollywood while they attended Chouinard Art Institute. McMillan worked in advertising design initially, then moved to photography and “photosculpture.”  He was the first photographer to have a one-person exhibition at the Pasadena Art Museum, in 1966.  In 2004, he had solo exhibitions “Picturing Ed: Jerry McMillan’s photographs of Ed Ruscha, 1958-1972” in Santa Monica and Cologne, Germany.
