Mel Katz Part 2: 1971

Mel Katz has a retrospective exhibition opening at the Hallie Ford Museum  of Art at Willamette University on June 5. I’ll be mining my Mel Katz archive for awhile.

Evidently, when I was a member of the Art Exhibition Committee at Portland State we did a survey of the art faculty. I saved Mel’s questionnaire.

Art Portland 1970s

I’ve never been very good at archiving my stuff. I wrote almost 200 articles for Willamette Week from 1974-1983, but I probably saved only a couple dozen of my  clippings myself. However, my mother was better at clipping her son’s stuff, and recently, when looking through my clips box I found this article from 1980 that she saved. For those who were not here in the 70s, here’s some basic info.
