How Brooke Hayward's marriage to Dennis Hopper helped ignite the 1960s' art explosion

For many who lived through the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s, it was magical and surreal. Writer Mark Rozzo wanted to explore one intersection of the cultural shifts - how new waves in contemporary art, pop music and Hollywood films evolved.
