did any artists make reservations?
Tertullian and John the Baptist Piranesi are looking forward to presenting "De Spectaculis II" at Leaving Obscurity Behind, the 2005 Horace Trumbauer Architecture Fan Club Convention, on 14 May 2005 in honor of the 14 May 1999 discovery of the two states of the Ichnographia Campus Martius by an outsider.
"De Spectaculis II" will also correct all the mistakes and crafty omissions made by David R. Marshall within "Piranesi, Javarra, and the Triumphal Bridge Tradition" (in The Art Bulletin, a quarterly published by the College Art Association, June 2003). Tertullian and Piranesi love it when peer-reviewed academics publish stupid mistakes.
And don't forget the forthcoming presentations of "The Marriage of Twisted and Column" by Eutropia and Rubens, and "Nudist Camp at the Philadelphia Museum of Art" by Duchamp and Jennewein on 20 March 2005. By the looks of it, be prepared for standing room only.

architecture ...& the rest of the Art World?
Lynn is to arch as Stephen Lauf is to painting.
Throughout the early 1990s Lauf uniquely utilizied CAD in the process of generating paintings. The first painting was Operation Complete (1992) and the last was Siamese (1995). One of the largest, Taken Literally at 6.5 x 10.5 feet, hung in Anthony Vidler's NYC Chelsea sublet for a couple years.
Barney is to installation as Chronosomatics is to arch.

20 March 1966
It was my 10th birthday, and it was also a Sunday. I think my cousins came over the night before. Anyway, as there were no plans for Sunday, I asked if I could go to the movies by myself. I saw in The Sunday Bulletin movie listings that The Magic Fountain was playing at the Crest theater's children's matinee that afternoon. To my surprise and delight, I was allowed to go, which meant I was also allowed to take the 50 trolley up Rising Sun Avenue for like a mile and a half--the Crest was in the Lawncrest neighborhood at Rising Sun and Cheltenham Aves. (a 7-Eleven is there now). To save some money for myself (probably to buy some candy at the movies), I decided to forego taking the trolley and walked instead.
I got to the theater ok, and watched the movie with a whole lot of other kids. I don't remember anything about the movie except that it ended with a great aerial shot of this fantastic castle. I was mesmerized. "Where is that place?!?" I wanted more.
To everyone's surprise and joy, a snow storm had started while the movie ran. It was now a wonderland outside, and thank God I didn't spend all of my trolley money.
The Magic Fountain
It wasn't until 1969, when we got Encyclopedia Britannica, that I again saw (a picture of) the fantastic castle. I was seeing Neuschwanstein.
Not that it means anything, but it just so happens that King Ludwig I of Bavaria (grandfather of Ludwig II who built Neuschwanstein) abdicated to marry dancer Lola Montez 20 March 1848. I finally saw Neuschwanstein in person sometime the first week of January 1976. I had no idea then that my brother Otto was very sick at home. I still don't know what happened, but it appears Otto ODed New Year's Eve. A half year later Otto went schizophrenic. Back then I didn't know Ludwig II also had a brother Otto who also went schizophrenic 18 January 1871 in the Hall of Mirrors of the palace of Versailles while (cousin) Wilhelm King of Prussia was proclaimed German Emperor.
Brothers Grimm indeed.

when the rainbow isn't enuf?

Name that ignudi.

Michelangelo opposite Jennewein and Duchamp.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Vatican Hill.

Eutropia and Rubens had great fun comparing the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the Life of Constantine tapestries.
How many times overall did Rubens reenact a Sistine ignudi?
And indeed yesterday there was a lot of standing room only in the Great Hall.
Next month's focus is on Julian "willing and" Abele and James Stirling.
