I'll be in the area (up from Maryland)as a guest artist at The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art this Sunday, 3/24 from 2-5pm, basically making a big drawing for the launch of their Extreme Draw On program. I'm attaching an EXTREMELY rough draft of what I'll be making but it's supposed to be something like 20' long to cover some wall-sized paper and dedicated to a dear departed friend. So--please come out and draw, watch me sink/fail/succeed, see the opening that will be happening inside the museum at the same time, bring Oliver some sort of Spiderman toy, etc.
All best, J
Here's the info for the opening and what I'll be doing from the museum's facebook page:
Extreme Drawing Opening Reception Featuring Six New Exhibitions
