Howard Skrill's 'Monumental Follies' (virtually) at the Fairfield University Art Museum's Bellarmine Galleries
Please visit “Monumental Follies” a virtual exhibition of over thirty works from my art project the Anna Pierrepont Series (howardskrill.blogspot,com) of public monuments, monument removals and absences after removal at the Fairfield University Art Museum’s Bellarmine Galleries, organized by the museum’s Executive Director, Carey Weber and her staff https://www.fairfield.edu/museum/skrill/. Also, please join the audio tour where I explore the many ways that monuments hoist the past’s follies upon an increasingly hostile present.

I am very excited to announce that my autobiographical pictorial essay ‘Death Wish’ is now live at Slag Glass City: Dispatches.
'Death Wish' recounts my encounter with the actor Charles Bronson in front of my former Upper West Side home during the filming of 1974's 'Death Wish' and the real life consequences of the backlash that the film celebrated and encouraged.
'Death Wish' also contains drawings of the Upper West Side that I created for my art project, the Anna Pierrepont Series.
Thanks to Madeline Happold, Barrie Jean Borich and others at Slag Glass City who rescued ‘Death Wish’ from censorship and aided in its refinement!

Thanks to the Art Department, Public Safety and the archivists at Bronx Community College
who assembled an exhibition that included my works and those of Rich Garr in the Hall of Fame Gallery on campus
and enabled Rich Garr and I on Saturday, September 21st
to assemble a processional from
1520 Sedgwick Ave., the birthplace of hip-hop in the pivotal year of 1973
Hall of Fame for Great Americans
to symbolically replace
in the Hall of Fame for Great Amercians
with DJ Kool Herc
Special thanks to the intrepid hikers who joined Rich in the mile long processional/Street Art Tour that bridged the divide between the fortress like campus and the surrounding community, those from inside the campus gate who assembled to greet them and those who spoke at the symbolic induction!
