Mr. Imagination in Las VegasThursday, October 13, 2016
The House of Blues in Las Vegas has a magnificent array of art by the late Mr. Imagination (Gregory Warmack) that Leslie and I got to see. I met Mr. I at Kentuck (next Kentuck this weekend!), and he was a close friend of my friend Larry Harris, and even lived with Larry for a while in Houston.
After a year of recovery, Warmack soon reinvented himself as "Mr. Imagination." He lived and worked in Chicago for the next 22 years. The Hammer Gallery in Chicago gave the artist his first formal exhibition and represented him for many years.
