 SEX Week at UMDNJ, 675 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ

Now until Jan. 5th... in the small student lounge across from Woody's cafeteria.

Some background: UMDNJ conducts seminars during the first week of each January covering sexual matters.

Artists were invited to take part.

By chance, we began the Ass-i-nine project

coupled with the newspaper article "New Jersey Artists..What Inspires Your Art?"

( Home News Tribune..Marquee Section, D13, Monday, Sept. 9th 2002 )

We cast our asses....they sat for months before we thought what to do with them.

Then the Family Framers (Jamesburg, NJ) "MASK" show tipped things into action..

ASS MASKS, we thought! The Mask Show - October, 2003

We were aiming for 9 selected ASSES.

A juried show we mused!

We got as far as four and this year kicked out 2.

  Last time we did anything for this yearly event was 2 years ago.

The Ass-i-nine show ...We caste our asses ...really.

We had was a black ass done by a dark horse... the mortician downstairs at UMDNJ ;

One was Bob Rakita's, he did phases of the moon on his blue ass.

The other was a butterfly butt, alternately named "Starry Ass" as not only did it have wings but also stars! 

UMDNJ conducts seminars during the first week of January covering sexual matters. They invited us pre-9/11 to brainstorm and take part. It was around about then we began this project coupled with the newspaper article "New Jersey artists..What Inspires Your Art?"

The 4th ass was mine, plastered with the newspaper article.

The Ass-i-nine show, such as it was, is now down to 2. We had our asses kicked out! Such is working together in harmony and the arts..two steps foreward and four back and then a banana step. Everything you need to know about life you learn in kindergarten!
