Goodbye 5 Points

Last week I packed and moved my studio from the Crane Street building AKA 5 Points into storage until I finish a long run of projects on the road that will keep me busy until April or May of next year.

I will miss all of my friends and neighbors at the building. It really feels like the end of a era.
The building attracted people from all over with its fantastic graffiti and talented artists. It seemed like there was always something going on.
Well wishes to Nicole Gagne, who was hurt in the collapse which triggered the buildings close.
Here is a link to the article.

The next few weeks will be spent making the final preparations for ArtPrize, and my up-coming shows at The New Children's Museum, in San Diego OCT 10, and at The Skybox at 2424 Studios in Philadelphia OCT 30.

The Fun Factory

There is much work to be done this August. As I am pulling the pieces together for ArtPrize, I must also move out of my studio. It feels like the end of an era at The Fun Factory. Here are some pics that Romy Owens took at the Great Caper party. Look how awesome this place was.

Back to work in NYC

Traverse City is fantastic! Everyone I met was absolutely kind and generous. I felt right at home with the Allen-Wickler family. Chris, Roger, Zoe, and Olivia. Their house is the most peaceful place I have ever stayed.
Check out their stuff online.
For making sculptures John Robert Williams handed me the key to his studio and let me use it like it was my own for the week. He and his wife Terrie were incredible hosts.

Kat, Olivia, Zoe, and Roger.

Swimming in the lake was amazing. The water was crisp. clear and super refreshing. After jumping in once I was hooked. Each time was like a spiritual awakening.

Here are some piles of sand I made to get heated before jumping in the cool water.
This week I will be fulfilling all of the prints. Yay!!
Thanks to all of you for being so patient. They're coming.
Lot's of exciting things to report about my ArtPrize campaign, as well as some potential upcoming shows that will be jaw dropping if they come through. More about that later.

Here is the link to a little video from last week-end.
