On 103 and Amsterdam is an historic building that once held the widows of Civil War soldiers until thier final days. Now it bustles with the young adventurous travelers from around the world as New York City's largest hostel. Not everyone there is on vacation. Some guests bare the mark of old fashioned New York crazy, and rumors of the undead widows unwilling to move on to the next realm. The lobby holds a mural I recently created. The idea behind its subject matter was "New York City welcomes the world".
for those who were there, the wooster on spring exhibition was intense. many things have been written and a million photos taken. i was fortunate enough to see it form from the inside over a few weeks, make friends with beautiful people from far away places, experience the 3 day stimuli blitz, and even add a corner piece to it. for me it started a year that has brought great changes in both my art and life. a marking point. someting that will stay in my heart until its done beating.
