 This brother is superbad!
Spend your Friday night at AOM!

Let me tell you why I chose him!

By now you know I have a fondness for my main man, Andy Warhol! And Steven Shay,
AKA Citizen Shay reminds me sooo much of him! Look at the colors--the subject matter and the technique he uses to create his works of art.

Over the course of his career, Citizen Shay is transforming contemporary art. By employing graphic art techniques to create works, Shay challenges preconceived notions about the nature of art and erases traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture.

When I was a little girl summertime meant one thing, Lake Michigan all the way up and down the shore!! We'd start out at beach behind the Planetarium. By day we'd watch the single engine planes take off & land at Meigs Field. Sometimes the whole beach would jump to their feet when a little plane would do a wobble and quickly regain their course. 

Then at the first sign of darkness, we'd gather up the quilts, baseballs & bats, and race to the Buick station wagon. On our way to Grandmothers house, our dad would drive us pass 
the lady!!

 You could see her 4 blocks down, or so it seemed. Her arms outstretched, her little swimsuit & cap, the beauty queen smile, on her tiptoes...
 Does anyone remember her? She was perched atop of the diving board at the motel fondly known as
"50th on the Lake."
