What You’re Missing By Living In New York

You are missing out on some things by not living Pittsburgh.There are some very cool things and a lot of cool people who are a little more free to pursue their personal creativity.

One of them is an artist named Tom Sarver, who was able to convince a famous center for installation art, called the Mattress Factory to give him a house, in which he has created an ever evolving personal world, that is part art studio, part installation and part museum–or sort of a deconstruction of formal museums. The Tom Museum is both cute and powerfully subversive.

Tom’s background is in puppetry and performance projects are always a big part of what the place is about. The project was originally funded for a year and though it’s now lived beyond that, it won’t last forever. At least one NY blogger liked his visit there.

I hope to have a few works by Tom Sarver in the space I’m renting in the East Village in November.
