I happened upon a Tom Marioni Salon at SFMOMA in early 2009. Who would have dreamed that an august art museum would sponsor an evening of beer drinking & talking and call it art?

Connections were made. Art was distilled, torn apart and birthed. I was changed. It had a profound effect on my artistic vision.

My interest in engagement art* was urged to grow. Exploring the disintermediation of artist and viewer; throwing both into a joint experience of art creation; cutting out the middle man; deleting the art object.

May we engage.

*Art of Engagement: An art form where the active participation of those in attendance is both integral & required, and the work cannot exist without it; where an “audience” is impossible; and where one emerges, changed by the experience.
