"I became convinced that the way to make really good art was to do the outrageous, the unexpected---to be a renegade. That was my philosophy---to explore the seemingly impossible in art, to do things that were new for their own sake, whether they were good or bad." - Gene Davis

Nauman. Art make up. Love this piece. Great to see it installed on four screens here. Last I saw it on one in Rome last summer.

Sam Gilliam. Swing. 1969. So glad I have had the privilege to know and work with Sam, a DC native.

Louise Bourgeois texture

Jesus Morales piece. I met him here, in front of this work at a reception. Later hired him for a public art commission in Arlington, VA. Sad to learn from the museum label that Jesus passed away earlier this year.
