These galleries allow me to create installations of miniature pieces and as funding for the American arts has been threatened throughout my working life, dating back to the Maplethorpe controversy, my dollhouse galleries have given me an idea: I propose that if the NEA goes away, at least one house in every neighborhood will need to become an art “safe house” where work by living artists can be exhibited &/or made and art history can be taught – where, above all, art can exist uncensored and be seen by the community. I imagine kids dropping in after school to take classes or make work of their own. Consider these scale-model art safe houses in a variety of Shades: White, Blue, Green and Gray. From a series in progress (see also the Artomatic 2017 page on this site). The work of more than 40 artists is represented here.
