"Lightning" lives

"lightning" sits in his new home at the Booth Western Art Museum's new wing.The 140,000 sq ft Museum has the largest perminent western art collection in the country,and is the second largest art museum in Georgia.I created lightning for my "wild ride" exhibit in partnerships with the Booth from 06-08, and then a year in museum catacombs after purchase while construction finished.Im pictured at the opening black tie fundraiser,where I donated a 3.5' sculpture,and custom fire screen.Got to give to take.Visit the Booth,you will leave happy and shocked a world class museum sits pretty in the middle of Cartersville Ga.

Re: "Lightning" lives

Looks great in his new home, congrats!
You clean up pretty well too.
I hope that's just the beginning of the ride with the Booth.

Re: "Lightning" lives

I must admit,only second black tie event in 25 years,and I still felt like I needed a little dirt of grease or something to adjust me back to the norm.The people at the Booth have been good to me,and I enjoy going there.It is nice to have a regoinal artist that is 50 miles away in the collection,as most of the works are from out west.The museum is a nice mix of traditional and contempary works,and the building is Ausome.I Guess the exhibits I did in California,New Mexico,and Arizona kind of paid off,but in GA ,go figure,as my horses were originally built to go out west and never made it past Tenn.Cartesville is due North of Atlanta about 30 miles or so,right near Hwy I 75,worth the effort to see.

Re: "Lightning" lives

When I waited tables as a youth I had to wear a polyester clip-on black tie 5 nights a week. When it dissolved by the volatility of after-hours alcohol (and some during hours alcohol), I knew it was time for a new job. That was 20 years ago...never a black tie since (or any other hue). I go turtle-neck to fancy feasts. And they're damned lucky I dont just go with the usual dress-up of heavy-metal T and cowboy boots.
