Thanks kindly to The School of Visual Arts Alumni Society for inviting my work to be a part of this fall's "The Sports Show", a sports-themed art show presented at SVA's Chelsea gallery. Besides the honor of exhibiting with artists whose work I admire, it's nice to see the school come around on this kind of visual culture- back when I was a student at SVA a decade ago, many of my teachers (and the office of student activities, who continuously denied my requests to start sports clubs) openly eye-rolled at my interest in sports, questioning my taste and so on. Just goes to show that even when you feel alone, you might not be. Ah, life.
The Sports Show at SVA Gallery
West 26th Street, 15th floor
August 22 - September 19th
From the press release:
The School of Visual Arts Alumni Society presents a survey of creative work in various media that brings fans closer to the action—before, after and during the game. The exhibition brings together more than 30 leading artists and designers who graduated from SVA in commercial design and advertising, film and video, illustration and cartooning, motion graphics, painting and photography. These artists are behind some of the most iconic imagery and creative direction in the world of sports.
Thrilled that my short film The Perfect 18 has been nominated for an Emmy. The category is "New Approaches- Short Form", and the awards ceremony is on May 5th.
Thanks very much to my teams at Victory Journal and Grantland for all their work in making this film as special as it turned out to be. Win or lose, this is a great moment for all of us, for Rick Baird, and for the Putt-Putt community.
Thanks kindly to Deadspin and Dave Mayers for featuring my work on their site. I knew I always liked those dudes.
In the latest incredible event around the release of "The Perfect 18", Rick Baird was invited onto the TODAY Show to talk about his perfect round of Putt-Putt and our film about it.
To greet him & his game, the producers built a few tiny-but-maniacally-difficult holes out on the plaza, where Rick tested his skill with Matt Lauer and Carson Daly through the interview. It was great to be there and cheer Rick on.
