Mike Kelley – RIP – 1954-2012

9th February 2012, 9:47 pm

As the art world knows,
Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley passed away,
an apparent suicide.

A note from the editor,
Tulsa Kinney.

Mike was a friend of the Foundation
and collected Tom’s work.

In 1985, when Mike was at CalArts
he coordinated a lecture with Tom.

When Mike visited TOM House
he shared his joy,
his wisdom
and his sense of humor.

When you left us, Mike, we were in the midst
of working on a new anthology on Tom.
We were writing about you
and how those that create, inspire.

Thank you for giving so much to the world.
