Talking Artscape, murals, and moving on with BOPA's Gary Kachadourian

Frank Klein
Gary Kachadourian says he does some of his best thinking--and drawing--on the bus.
"Trash Container," one of Kachadourian's series of life-size prints he draws on paper then enlarges to mammoth scale.
A detail of "Motors Installation," a collection of doodle drawings Kachadourian has been creating since he was in junior high school.

CP: It's in food courts.

GK: Yeah, it's been separated, which was a really good move. That was actually [BOPA Executive Director] Bill Gilmore's first thing--"OK, let's separate the food." We'd looked at it before and were like, "Oh, this is gonna be too much work." But he was like, "No. We're doing that." And it's a good idea.

It was always down the main drag in the beginning, even though there wasn't that much food. When people would complain, "It's all about food," well [if] you walk by it five times and every line's got 12 to 20 people at it, that indicates it may not be enough food. It's an outdoor festival. It wasn't doing anything different than any other festival.
