Bruce Conner loved this event the Mutants staged for him, he called me, still alive, to share his excitement about what his friends did for him. The resulting video is fantastic and really captures his essence. Conner is the artist I’m currently creating museum prints for, or for his estate, I should say. See them at MCA Denver near the beginning of 2012.
This is a video by Cinthea Fiss, a friend/artist associated with the early San Francisco punk band the Mutants, a band I shot in the late 1970s. Here I’m at work for a defunct museum space in Colorado (Lab at Belmar).
A show I helped jury with these two other characters (well known photographer Mark Sink on the left, and BMOCA Associate Curator Petra Sertic in the middle, is closing tonight with a burning gallery party. I’m in the last photo here. The show, “Down the Rabbit Hole,” uses imaginative photo-based work borne to the world via channels of the collective unconscious, or something.
Be there or you won’t be there, Hinterland Art Space, 33rd and Walnut in Denver. Probably, there will be people there until at least 11p…
Wow, today is my 60th birthday. Never thought I’d live this long!
I love this photo of me by friend and amazing photographer Alfred Pagano. I’m sitting in a chair at my parents’ house which is said to originally belong to Ulysses S. Grant, and I seem to be dreaming about about the cool year to come with my family and the art world…
Looking forward to an amazing year in the art world thanks to people like the stunning and cunning museum director Adam Lerner, and Robert Conway, the cool and intelligent person I’m working with for the Bruce Conner estate. Watch for a fantastic high-art show of Bruce Conner prints I’ve created at MCA Denver in early 2012, and an affiliated show of my own work at the same time! Hopefully, a book/portfolio of my own work will come out at the same time, including some written words about me by Adam.
This year I’m planning shows at local galleries including a family show of my amazing artist-family, a new Heads of Hydra show, and a large show of my own bodies of work that will not be included in a 2012 show.
I don’t mind being 60 because, fortunately, I never grew up!
This is a video I helped to create, so I guess it’s the first music video I’ve worked on!
This is a new show I curated of photographers and writers, and it opens tonight!

The public reading by Carson Reed will be at 8:14p.
Roger Green provides the ambience for the evening with his eclectic music.
