Art Clokey: Mandala
I was hoping to share some thoughts about the downtown shows I saw last night, but honestly the gallery crawl was too packed to really see things well. I will be back.
One highlight was my visit to the small, shoestring, start up museum called the Toonseum which screened a documentary about Gumby's creator and his pioneering first film called Gumbasia.
The documentary referred heavily to another equally experimental artistic project he made later, called Mandala, a trippy religious meditation on life and death.
