Happy Birthday Andy. Tacoma hated you.

80 years old !
Oh My, what a jumpstart Tacoma woulda had waaaaay back in the early 80s if they'd chosen Andy Warhol.....
That stupid ass decision to put triangles on the Dome delayed T Town's renaissance by decades, my friends.

I think it's sad/tragic that Tacoma rejected one of the most amazing artists of all time....

Sometimes you need someone who is coloring outside the lines.
Whether you like it or not.
I still can't believe I live in a town that hated Andy Warhol !!
People woulda come from all over the world to see it!
Instead the "leadership" of Tacoma had to wait.....
and wait...
and wait........
for The Glass Museum......
and expensive taxpayer subsidized Condos.....


semi-repeating a previous blog:



This:

Not This:

So Tacoma if you want art, REAL ART, you are so on your own.
Do not look to the City for anything that is real.
The City of Tacoma and the phony arbiters of art (snicker) HATE YOU .

Agreed! Warhol flower > 1980s diamond pattern. However, my ideal is to strip all paint and have natural stained wood. What good is having one of the world's largest wood domes if you can't even tell it's wood?

oooh, I hadn't really considered natural wood....maybe finished like a boat, eh? I was out in my 'back yard' ..ie: the parking lot behind Friesenburgers....vacuuming my car and looking at the Dome. Life is funny. Yeah. The world's largest wood dome is sooo appropriate for the Evergreen State...I'm not being snotty about that!
