Snapshots from a 1969 Art happening at Aquinas College, Grand Rapids, Michigan [Vernacular Photographs]

Price: $25.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Good-Very Good


Four color snapshots, 8.8 by 8.8 cm, and two black and white Polaroid snapshots, 8.2 by 10.5 cm. Good to very good with fading and tape residue on the verso of the color snaps; a couple of surface scratches on one of the color images; and some tape (?) residue on the bottom edge of one of the black and white images. The color photos feature Nate (no last name, unfortunately) during an Aquinas College art show “Happening” in which he was encased in 250 lb. plaster and sat for three hours. Two of the images are of Nate sitting there in his full plaster cast; in one the plaster is just starting to crumble; and the final image shows Nate breaking free from his plaster cast, 1960s sideburns and all! All are captioned in pencil on the verso. The two black and white photos feature images of the sculpture “'Grant Us Peace’ (Ralph)” by Nathan in May 1968. Both are captioned in pen on the verso.
