This mug is modeled after a Barney West tiki carving that lives out front of Trader Vic's in Emeryville, California.
Woody Miller was commissioned to create these mugs for the "Tiki Dreams: From Far-Away Fantasy to Pop-Culture Phenomenon" exhibit at the Napa Valley Museum in Yountville from May 20th - December 31st.
Curated by Baby Doe & Otto von Stroheim of Tiki Oasis, this exhibition illuminates California’s leading role in creating and defining Tiki as an American pop-culture phenomenon, showcasing artifacts from Northern California Tiki bars and restaurants, many of which have never been exhibited before. Works by contemporary Tiki artists will also be featured, celebrating the movement’s enduring influence and exciting future.
Mugs are on sale at the location only.
