the 80s art scene

Willem Defoe

Powerhouse Books is about to release
I did a post of Mrs. Barron's work almost a 
year and a half ago 
and was (and still am) struck by seeing 
so many of my heroes from that era captured in their youth.
Some were in their prime, some were unknowns,
some would go on to become very famous, 
some very rich, and others, 
too many,
 are dead....
So climb into the 
Mondoblogo Time Machine 
and head back to the future,
The New York City Art World
circa 1980....
