THE NEXT BIG THING WALKS!

One April Fool's day, I decided to have a, "Media Spectacle". I sent out press releases to all the major newspapers in the area (view it yourself) telling them that: (1 I was going to be famous, (2 I was going to move a gigantic painting through downtown by foot and (3 Andy Warhol was alive and well, he loved my stuff and he was going to be representing me for First Friday. I'm sure they all thought it was a joke. It really happened.

Andy came into his usual magnetic self and found many of the pretty people of the fair city of Denver.

The walk through downtown was about 3 and 1/2 miles. We took pictures and shot some DV film. I made a quick edit of the film entitled, "THE NEXT BIG THING... Walks!" and sent it as yet another promotional item.
