Venice Italy

Venice Italy is beautiful, the weather is great, and our hosts are generous. I met James Rosenquist at the Guggenheim the other night, and I had lunch with Rauchenberg’s printer and his business manager today. Thanks to Ayn from Gemini G.E.L for hooking that up. We have a few more installs to do, but so far so good. I’m donating 6 fine art pieces and all these installations to raise mone for the restoration of Venice. The image with the horses and tower will be a print edition to raise money. I’ll update more photos and info for the art auctions later.

Notre Dame Protest

We recently got wind that some of Shepard’s Obama illustrations are being used to protest Obama’s upcoming visit to Notre Dame University. The images are being used beside those of slaves and graphic photographs of aborted fetuses. The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform Mid West is driving these billboards on semi-trucks around South Bend, Indiana and flying them from planes above the sky where the University is located. We fully support reproductive rights and in no way allowed the CBR to use these illustrations. While we completely support the first amendment, we are saddened to see people manipulate Shepard’s illustration of our President in this manner.
