CELEBRATING JAMES UPDATE
I was going to suggest that anyone who felt inclined to help out in various crowd-wrangling positions should check out the volunteer sign-up sheet. But it looks like all the volunteer positions are already filled.
Thank you, Santa Cruz!
You are still welcome to simply show up at the Rio for volunteer orientation at 5:15 on the afternoon of the event, for any last-minute celebration emergencies.
James' longtime friend and former business partner, Joe Ferrara will sing. Speakers will speak, and a brilliant slide show of candid photographs from my vast archive, alongside images of James' paintings, will be on a loop upstage. (Put together by the miraculous Jana Marcus!)
And of course there will be bubbly! Doors open at 6, and festivities begin at 6:30.
As difficult as it is to say goodbye to my Art Boy, I hope we can give him a rousing send-off!
I'll see you there!
