The Citi Field That Never Sleeps


I hated the old New York Mets stadium. It was called Shea and was built by Robert Moses in the sixties. Even he hated it. A giant cement bowl of nothingness. Yes there was a lot of good memories but few and far between. So I was very excited that the Mets finally built a new stadium. A week or two into the season I went to see it for myself. Citi Field. It was glorious. It was a festive night in which Gary Sheffield hit his 500th
home run and the Mets actually won. I love that you don't have to sit in your seats to watch the game. You can stroll about and visit the different food courts. No one bothers you if you stand around somewhere drinking a beer for ten minutes. I can't wait to get back. Now if only the lowly Mets could win a few games.

Hi Tommy, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
Essex
SS0 9XD
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
