Funeral Pyre

The central Phoenix building that became The House burned early Tuesday morning. It closed as an art space a couple of years ago and spent its remaining days abandoned except for the various transients who broke through the fencing to make it their home.

I have a very sentimental attachment to the place so it's final demise saddened me a bit. On the other hand, what better way to go than a literal blaze of glory.

Here are a couple photos. The first is copied from a newspaper article published just after we set up studios there 1995. The second was taken the in April 2007 when the last artists vacated the premises.

Good-bye, old friend.
