the orange show center for visionary art's
eyeopener tours:

New Mexico, 2009

It was good to take a restful year off from tour leading (AKA cat herding), but now it's off again for another out-of-town Orange Show Eyeopener Tour, this time to a long awaited destination, that land of (eye)chantment, northern New Mexico. With my regular group of tour veterans and a few newbies on board, Bob Davidson our fearless driver at the wheel, along with two ice coolers packed with beer and wine that you can purchase at 7:00 am in this forward-thinking state, we are ready to go...

before we arrived we received a call from
the Albuquerque media

beloved landmark of Albuquerque and masterpiece of the Pueblo Deco style:
the KiMO Theater

Beverley Magennis's (and now Erin and Kyle's) monument to
color, pattern, joy and life: the Tile House in Albuquerque.
there should be one on every street.
