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.
at Ace Palm Springs. They’re solid chums of Ace, and their party was amazing. Parra from Amsterdam created the look and feel of the wedding and this incredible cake. And guests received these custom bamboo towels by Luxurious Organics (check out their shop). Everything was very YES. Goro’s in Harajuku made a special tie pin for the groom and the wedding party wore these top-secret custom shoes. Afterward, there was an dance party in the Amigo Room that none of us will soon forget. See more on Jarrett’s blog — he’s on a honeymoon right now, but stay tuned for more.
