To me this photo represents a lot of what Ithaca was like in the 1980s.  This VW Beetle was parked in front of the Ithaca Diner and the goat inside seemed quite content.  I can’t remember what article in American Demographics that it was used to illustrate, but it shows how creative Mike Rider and Jim Keller were in choosing images.  Pretty cool.

The opening of the exhibit is a week from today.  I’ll probably be jet-lagged, but stop by and I’ll mumble a heartfelt hello.

Ithaca Suitcase Talk

Posted in Willard Asylum, Willard Suitcases by joncrispin on 30/09/2013

I will be talking about the Willard Suitcases project at the Tompkins County Public Library  in Ithaca, NY on Thursday, 24th October.  Craig Williams will also be there and it should be a fun evening.  The event will take place in the Borg Warner room at 6.00 PM and is, of course, open to the public.  It would be a good chance to meet those of you who live in central New York and can attend.

I like this photograph from John C’s case as it shows how carefully the staff at the New York State museum worked to preserve these delicate objects.  I have just uploaded his suitcase to the willardsuitcases.com site, so you can now see what else John had with him at Willard.

Ithaca, NY

Here’s a shot I took from the top of the Ithaca parking garage a long time ago.  It was around this time I started to become interested in motion.  I really like the movement of the arm reaching out to the mailbox. /  Sorry for the dearth of posts lately.  My cold really knocked me down.  Finally feeling somewhat healthy again.
