Bottoms Up for Provincetown
Provincetown Fine Arts Center, Provincetown MA 1976
Celebration of Gay men
Providence town was so delightfully gay when I was there for the summers of 1976 and 1977. It’s also such a party drinking town as well as an amazing artist’s Mecca. I decided to celebrate with the spirit of the place by making Bottoms Up. I made 5 plaster bottoms, neither male nor female but an idealize butt. I took these into bars placing them on the bar stools and on the sand dunes then took picture. In one bar a rather distinguished man said he could have me murdered if I took his picture—but most of the men took the butts in a spirit of fun.
