I will see you there.”

What a surprise for me to come across these photos! The bricks did not belong to George Winne. I made this clay sculpture in 1976 when I was a grad student in Visual Arts at UCSD. The other sculpture in the memorial grove is by Michael Todd, who used to be on the faculty. I am delighted that the sculpture has been cared for over these many years.

The Blacklist experiment continues*
What started out as a way for a group of friends to display their unique talents to the local community has evolved into a multi-media spectacle. We pride ourselves on celebrating fearless and unapologetic creativity that goes beyond the formula of mainstream culture as a means to showcase the World’s emerging talents and unknown innovators of Art, Film, and Rock n’ Roll. This event of cerebral debauchery represents an effort to inspire the next wave of artists with original and unconventional content.
As filmmakers and artists we have the ability and the opportunity to inspire, and in many ways, the obligation. There is a lack of originality and authenticity in today’s popular culture and it’s not because there is a lack of original ideas, but a lacking desire to embrace them. We have been overly supplied with formulaic music, movies and opinion, so much that now the dissenters from formula have almost no chance of making it into the mainstream culture.
