POLE ART: LINDA MARY MONTANO
There are totem poles in the Northeast of the United States; parades which feature anatomically correct poles in Japan; there are dance poles, javelins, arrows and lots of objects designed by men to stand upright.
In front of:
THE ART/LIFE INSTITUTE &TRANSFIGURATION HOSPITAL
9 JOHN STREET, SAUGERTIES NY
is a pole, designed by CENTRAL HUDSON, a company committed to excellence and environmental beautification.Since the upgraded and replaced new pole is so much closer to my home and bigger and more tumescent than the one there previously, I thought it would be fabulous if we celebrated it's unwanted erection with an aesthetic intervention .And maybe when I sell this home my family owned since 1947, the new owners might even carry on the tradition of making ART OF AN UNHAPPY LIFE INCIDENT therby assuaging the vagaries of re-sale value and defaced nature?
DIANE DWYER OF IMOGENE HOLLOWAY GALLERY and I well gather your concepts for beautification and conceptual distraction.An opening and gesticular body movements motivated by joy, will happen in front of said pole at a later date.
