Occupy Westport!

photo by Derek Pell

In the spirit of the recent Occupy demonstrations spreading across the land, here’s a photo (my first)  shot in 1969. It shows artist Miggs Burroughs demonstrating outside the Westport Arts Center’ where his paintings had been excluded from the inaugural exhibition. 

The image recently resurfaced in a documentary on WAC.

I’m also responsible for creating that crude sign.

Art indeed.
