The Artist's Life: Surviving on the Fringe iin New York

I turned fifty this year, but most people guess I'm more like thirty-five. I point this out not to brag about my boyish charms, but because my youthful appearance and outlook generally attracts a relatively young circle of friends. My girlfriend is 32, for instance. Thus, being sort of bi-generational has lead me to some interesting observations about my young peers, and in turn about myself, some more lamentable than others.

I don't want to get into a tirade about how the kids can't spell… Continue

The Artist's Life: Surviving on the Fringe in New York

So I had a little exhibition. It was great to see everyone. Lots of people, lots of good friends, some folks I had not seen in a while. I even scored truly awesome and amazingly cheap studio space, via networking, from the experience. And I sold some work. It didn't really cost me much to set it all up, either, in the end. All things considered, a really pleasant experience. The only disappointment was that none of the professional contacts I expected to come made it down to the event. But… Continue

The Artist's Life: Surviving on the Fringe in New York

Living in New York is hard work. I have two jobs, and I still can't make my rent. And that's in Brooklyn. I've had a few commissions this year, but still I can't catch up. Freelance work has gone the way of the dodo, more or less. And I have (mercifully) more or less aged out of the restaurant business, both in terms of the impact on my body, and due to the tacit ageism that is discreetly practiced in the industry. C'est la vie.

I recently applied for a job as a studio painter for a very… Continue

The Artist's Life: Surviving on the Fringe in New York

I was walking my dogs this morning in the park near my apartment, and this middle-aged guy threw a bottle into the bushes. There was a trash can not two meters away from him, and the park was full of high school kids doing their summer volunteer work, picking up all the litter. This guy was not one of the bums that hang around the park all day (and throw their detritus all over the place, in between drunken snoozes, public defecation, fornication and drug induced rants, usually in… Continue

As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.
Why it is unknown is a mystery. Nobody knows it exists.
The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.
Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.
In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.” Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view.
Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians.
Your friend, Richard
