mailart beginnings - san francisco

My son Ian, me, Picasso Gaglione & John Held Jr

Long ago and faraway there was a cool place
in the south of Market area in SF called:
Stamp Francisco. It is no longer there.
Back in the 80s I met Picasso, and soon
managed to send off a few MailArt projects.
Through this, I met many fine people who
are very creative, in many different artistic fields.

These photos were from a Fluxus event,
at Stamp Francisco. Now, rather than
kicking and breaking up an old guitar,
Ian is playing one and producing some
interesting music of his own.

Amazing how fast 25+ yrs go by.

What a fantastic blog. Thanks so much for leaving a comment on Menton DP. Now I've found you - I've bookmarked you.

Coffee and art - sounds like a perfect combination to me.

Love what's been done to The Scream. Too right!
