What a scene!  The opening night gala reception for the art exhibit “QUEER: FROM ZERO TO A HUNDRED” at the Theater for the New City in New York was insanely fun.  The exhibit features works from Scooter LaForge, Johnny Rozsa, Aaron Miller, Barnaby Whitfield, Pete Hocking, Julie Smith, Peter J. Ketchum, Ricky Longo-Burrows and Tracy Phillips.  The space is enormous, the art is great and the artists are so talented.  The Toilet Boys’ Miss Guy was spinning tunes all night and Johnny Rozsa and Scooter LaForge met fans and signed copies of their latest books “Untouched” (by Johnny Rozsa) and “Scooter LaForge” (by Scooter LaForge).  The reception was so crowded, I will have to go back to get a better look at the art.  In the meanwhile, please enjoy a few party pix.  Good news for all of us, the exhibit runs until August 9, 2011, so don’t miss it!  Theater for the New City is located at 155 1st Avenue in New York.

May 4 is artist Keith Haring’s birthday.  New York celebrated with an the opening night reception of an exhibit of previously unseen Keith Haring works on paper at the Gladstone Gallery.  The drawings consisted of works from a series called “Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks” (1978).  As you can imagine, there were drawings of penises in varying sizes, states of arousal and penises that Haring drew in front of famous New York landmarks.  As I got to the section entitled “Actual Size” that were drawings  of Keith Haring’s own penis, I ran into fellow artist Scooter LaForge.  We are both big fans of Haring’s work, so we were sharing our reflections of the artist.  As any good reporter would do, I asked Scooter LaForge to answer the question that’s been on everyone’s mind:  “[from the ‘Actual Size’ series] which one are you?”

The answer – after the jump.
