If ever there was an exotic land of imagination in which grown-ups could lose themselves, it was that of Tiki culture. While much of post-WW II American art was Norman Rockwell paintings, there was an escapist movement based on the idyllic sights and sounds of the Polynesian Islands. This wave of exotica receded in the late 20th century but has been returning over the past dozen or so years. Currently, OC Historical Society president/Tiki aficionado Chris Jepsen curates an exhibit of artifacts, photos, documents, and music, which examine OC and SoCal’s connection with Tiki culture.
