East Street, 1974

Dig these pages from Henry Wilhelm’s thorough and information-packed pamphlet from the early 1970s.


“… an idea is just the beginning. It’s not the work itself. The work begins with a rigorous process of making and engaging that, hopefully, leads to something more than what one might have expected. Otherwise, what results, other than a resonant object, idea, or experience is merely the illustration of an idea.”

Mr. Bey traces his beginnings as an artist to one specific Saturday morning in his teen years. Many of us can relate to that.
