    I just noticed a poster about your work in the window of Cookie’s barber shop on Ramona and thought to take a quick detour to check on the actual work; the poster notes, as does this post, that the work is on display until (or thru?) July 28.

    Noa who took my electrical bill money noted that you had come by this morning to move the painting.
    I guess I can go bug Cookie about grabbing the poster for my flat file.

    • Dear Mark,

      We ended the exhibition a day or so early becaue a doctor and I suddenly agreed that he needed to operation on my knee ASAP. Much work to get ready for this operation which is tomorrow in Az. I decided that we’d move the exibition to its next stop–Seat of the County of Santa Clara; a day or so early to enable me to concentrate on on medical requirements days just before the trip to Az.

      Please contact me in two weeks and I will be pleased to inform you of new locations of the art exhibition. I regret that we inconvenienced you.


  2. Hi Michael, I was looking up John Laird quotes on climate changes and saw your connection to art. So I thought I would contact you about my collaboration with 7 scientists and artists – I started this project 3 years ago, and recently presented my Virtual Undersea Experience and was on a panel at the Cal Climate Change Adaptation Forum in Sacramento last month. Were you there? I will be projecting images and video on buildings and silks with info and other arts at the New Years First Night Monterey Celebration. Would you please put me on your mailing list for your future exhibitions? Thanks, Kira
