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: What about the statue of William Donald Schaefer?

GK: I think the statue's a good thing to have. I've seen the clay of it. Uh, it's a good-looking piece. I like Rodney Carroll's figurative work. I think figurative sculpture in the traditional sense, there's a lot of questions about its relevance art historically at this point. But as a monument I think it's totally appropriate, and I think he's doing a very conscientious and well-executed statue of William Donald Schaefer. I'm totally a fan of public art, I'm totally a fan of that classic bronze likeness type of project.

I'm also totally a fan of that Jonathan Borofsky sculpture in front of Penn Station.
