Gone, but not erased.

Robert Rauschenberg 1925 -2008

Thank you for your color, wit, chutzpah and for telling us that museums and criticisms do not matter in art.

Robert Rauschenberg reminds me of a friend I knew about nine years ago, but with whom I lost contact. I think she was the first (only) person to introduce Rauschenberg to me.

I cannot find any more recent work of hers on the Internet. Here, an extensive exhibit of her work with Post-Its. Yep: Post-Its. Intricately folded and ordered onto large boards. I think she is destined to make a real mark. I can say I knew her when. All the best to you, Melynda.

Aww, what a beautiful tribute.

And I have to thank you for your thoughtful advice--- what a beautiful picture of the subconscious/conscious that you've painted for me!

Ahhh, your title kills me.

My high school art teacher instilled in a great appreciation for the artists of that era. He would often make art or do silly things as tributes to these guys.

Thanks for sharing, Nancy!
