Dear Friends:

A short movie that filmmaker (and dear friend ) Marie Losier made about my teaching drawing as an extension of my artwork will be playing at MoMA, as part of her retrospective, on Friday November 2. I’m so excited to see this on the “Big Screen” and hope that you will join me that evening. I believe tickets will be available mid-October; more info on the MoMA website.

Sincerely,

Peter
