running MAY 9 – JULY 12, 2008
TONY SHAFRAZI GALLERY – 544 WEST 26 STREET – CHELSEA – NYC
opening night – water falls – inside and out.
water cascades down the 2nd story entry stairway. we always knew that stairway must have had a reason . .
. . . say what – about being made from “renewable” resources. wonder what the budget was on this ?
ROB PRUITT, on the right, looks down on his manmade waterfall – a first of its kind – don’t think anybody ever thought this up before ? – with him, is SPENCER SWEENEY.

the pump. at the bottom.
no there were no fish, not even goldfish . . . but, yes there were viagra pills crushed into the water.
handfuls were in little dish containers on the reception desk at the opening. we know someone. well, maybe our music critic, who grabbed a handful and sold them for $100 in Washington Sq. Park the next day !!
