It is my great honour and privilege to announce the completion of my first book of 2017: “The Book Of Phyllis” (Phyllis Lutjeans).
Lutjeans, now 87 and still living in Irvine, has been an integral part of the LA and OC art scene since the 1960s. At the Newport Harbor Art Museum (now OCMA), she was a curator of performance art. Famously in 1972, artist Chris Burden went on her weekly cable TV talk show (“All About Art”) and threatened her with a knife for a performance piece he called “TV Hi-Jack.” Los Angeles Art critic Mat Gleason calls her a “legend.” Since her retirement in 1992, she has facilitated monthly seminars, under the guise of “The Art Crowd’.
The 478 page, black and white, paperback book, is published by PCP Press and available thru Amazon. ISBN-10: 1542655099
