Audio Files Resurfaced: Blue Man & Penny Lane Revisited
In early 2001, I had a one-man show at Penny Lane Coffeehouse in Evansville, Indiana. I filled the walls with some thirty works. We moved to Evansville from Buenos Aires and hadn’t met many local people outside of my wife, Vicky’s, corporate office. On opening night, there was quite a nice crowd and many friendships were forged. I became instantly connected to the small but excellent art community of Southern Indiana.
I created a self-guided audio tour of my work exhibited at Penny Lane. These were the days before the iPod and podcasts. I had several portable CD players available on the coffeehouse’s counters which guided the viewer through short descriptions of every painting in the exhibit.
I recently found these audio files while organizing my CD collection. This particular file is the one that accompanies “Blue Man”, where my 13-years-younger voice describes how the painting came about. My newfound friend, Indiana poet, philosopher, rock ‘n roll security dude, and gourmet chef, Paul Hoskins, added his own commentary. My voice is congested – probably from springtime pollen as it was about this same time 13 years ago.
I have warm memories of my friends in Evansville and I continue to make threats of a visit to see them sometime…
