No Matter What Shape - The Archive

AN ARCHIVE OF MY OLDER WORK - AN EXHIBITION SPACE FOR ORIGINAL AND ALTERNATE VERSIONS OF MANIPULATED WORKS THAT APPEAR AT MICKMATHERSARTBLOG - A PARKING PLACE FOR SELECTED GRAPHICS USED IN OTHER BLOG SIDEBARS - AN ARTWORK IN AND OF ITSELF

In its short-sightedness, blogger has turned its back on those of us stuck with old operating systems and I'm forced to find a new blog host. You will now find MickMathersARTblog at Blog.com - use the direct link found in the masthead and remember to update your bookmarks. This place will continue as another archive for a large body of my work. As many of you know, my primary medium and working method is digital collage composed of manipulated photographs often combined with digital drawing & generative images. Netlabels, bands and musicians can view samples of my CD Cover Art at Mick Mather Illustration located on Tumblr. In another life I was an Arts & Culture consultant specializing in revitalization planning through creative public art projects and programs with Economic & Community Development Departments of towns, villages and cities. In these hard financial times this work is more important than ever and I still accept consultancy inquiries. You can contact me by email at: mickmather@yahoo.com

Public Art For Public Arteries -

Totem Project Article from The Post-Standard
This public art project continues to move forward and I've been scrambling to catch up with organizing and saving the press clippings, photographs and magazine articles. Once both phases are complete and we have all of the funded 16 sculptures in place, I may open another blog just for that project. Some interest by The City of Rome, New York and another development organization in Rochester, New York have shown interest in copying this model. I must say, if that happens, I'll be about as pleased as I've been about a project that I've had the good fortune to initiate and see through to fruition. A related post about the newspaper scraps torn away during one article clipping session can be seen here at MICKMATHERSARTBLOG.

Thanks so much for stopping in. I did visit your web site briefly ... I'll be back when I have a bit more time to wade through things. :)

Oh, I wish I'd been around to have shared in the journey with you! This is really awesome and quite a legacy to leave the city, not just in terms of the art but also in the establishment of defining the process which future projects will follow.
