Red Grooms "lost at sea"


Date: Sat Aug 14 2004 - 11:55:46 PDT

Speaking of Red Grooms,
One of my adventures this summer was a Mediteranean cruise aboard the
Celebrity Cruise ship, Galaxy. There was lots of art everywhere on the ship- the
original work of Rauschenberg, Stella, Lichtenstein, Johns, just to name a few.
One day I got lost on the way back to my cabin and by "accident" found a dozen
original drawings signed by Red Grooms- stuck way back on the 9th deck, where
no one could possibly see them! Oh, my god, fabulous Red Grooms just "lost
at sea". I think very few people on that ship realized the art -better than a
gallery- and what it was worth in $$$, besides a feast for the eyes! All I
could do is humbly stand on an outside deck and paint the French
Susan on Long Island
