Welcome him to our group of Jay/Day patrons, for he has donated $100 for the maintenance of the site. Look over to the right and you will see a list of alums who have graciously donated to the site.
You can, too, by clicking on the button marked "Make a donation."
You do such an outstanding job running Jay/Day. Some of the postings bring back funny, warm, and sometimes horrifying memories.
I'll share a good & warm one. By default (no one in the media Dept. wanted to work on it). So, I was the media guy for "Artists for Amnesty". One of Jay's pet pro Bono projects. I think I had only been working several months. Still piss my pants nervous territory.
Ended up having some great conversations with Jay. He would stop by my cube to get brief media updates, and grill me on my art knowledge. He would just sparkle when we talked about art. My cousin Kim MacConnel, was one of the founders of the "Pattern and Decoration" movement. Jay would grill me on it's place in art history.
Christ, I was only with Chiat/Day two years. Such a profound experience the memories have tagged along for twenty-one years.
Great work & your passion jumps from the site.
Again, thanks Bill!
