Poppa Whitman, you were the great things of these United States from before they were united. Thanks for being a voice and an example to those of us making our own way. Are you my angel?

TRANSFORMING MILK INTO MILK

Harry Everett Smith was an American archivist, ethnomusicologist, experimental filmmaker, artist, bohemian, magician, and mystic. He was born in Portland, Oregon in 1923, and lived at Ace New York when it was The Breslin Hotel. So we’re pretty fond of him.

OMFGCo and resident artist Johnne Eschleman designed and installed this photograph of Harry shot by Allen Ginsberg at The Breslin in 1985. Harry dubbed it “Transforming Milk into Milk.” Come by the lobby sometime and see it.

And many thanks to Rani Singh at the Getty Research Institute.
