My performance entitled "Great Martian Pastime" will be included in Adaptation's exhibition, "The Rules for Staying Young" May 2010 AND I need your help to perform it!

The performance entails two teams playing an offshoot of baseball called "pitch." Each team will have four players. So, I need seven guys - who can throw a ball - to volunteer.

If you think you've got the stuff, I will need you to show up for a couple practices - so that you can get accustomed to the game - most likely the practices will be an hour long and take place during the weekends of April. (I'll touch base with all accepted volunteers and try to make scheduling as painless as possible.)

Then on opening night of "The Rules for Staying Young" you get to perform in front of all the NWAA faithful.

Contact me at
The DEADLINE for sign up is February 27th.

In anticipation of spring training and May's baseball exhibition, here's a wonderful story by Dock Ellis:

(Photo credit: Christopher Motta)

The Rules for Staying Young explores the impact of baseball as an inspiration and conceptual model for historical and contemporary American artists, while investigating the ties between the game and the visual arts. From Thomas Eakins to Stephen Shore, baseball has captured the imagination and eye of American artists since its conception. The parallels between the timeless nature of our pastime and the evolving artistic studio are abundant, and remain profoundly relevant to contemporary practice. This exhibition highlights the rich territory between game and artist, where the perpetual moments of art and baseball meet.
