Ghostmap: Destination West

Thurs. July 10. From the Flying the Skies exhibit at the Phoenix Airport Museum. It made me hate Arizona even more...

Some interactive art at SITE Santa Fe. The current biennial focuses on ephemeral yet highly dynamic, multi-story exhibitions. More on the biennial this week.

The Student Center at the Santa Fe campus of St. John's College maintains a koi pond 365 days a year. It has a running waterfall... Yes - they have live koi fish.
My God.


I am now in New Mexico, busily stomping rattle snakes by the dozen and exorcising that notorious demon called "boredom" from the local population.

Several people have contacted me about seeing art in Atlanta this weekend. It pains me that I won't be able to see the "eyeball-scratching" goodness at Beep Beep, Wonderroot, and New Street. But I've planned this trip for some time - a fact I've shared with more than one reader - so I regretfully reiterate my position:
I am a Man of my Word.
Shouts out to everyone that helped me make it happen (Jennifer, Michi, Luciana, Shawn Marie)!

So Santa Fe, huh? Five days of concentrated gallery hopping, eavesdropping and general industrial espionage, and of course, carousing of the Dionysian variety. Tequila is a drink worthy of devils.

Plus the weather is beautiful. Don't let them tell you it's hotter in New Mexico than in Atlanta. It's a lie.

** I'll be visiting other places on the West Coast this month; if anyone has suggestions for galleries and art places - or just fun places in general (restaurants, dive bars, etc.) - to visit in Santa Fe, Seattle, and especially Portland -- please hit me with a comment, OK?

Oh MAN do I have a phone # & a place for you to visit in Portland!! LOL I think it's the strip karaoke bar called "Devil's Point". I've never been, but I hear it's not to be missed!

Good to hear you're shakin' things up in NM!! You're only missing rain in ATL and the galleries will still be here when you get back. :-)
