When politicians promote their kin, they get accused of nepotism.
When artists do it, they're lauded.
What gives?

He was commissioned to do a bas relief. He was not a sculptor. He hired someone he knew could and would represent his art in its true form. He was not selling his vote or influencing an outcome.

Peter,
Paul and I heard about the Stockbridge celebration from the Perrys in June when we stopped by East Norwalk, but were very sorry not to be able to get there. Very glad to see the video showing much of your work since we last saw it in Rome in the 60's: exciting development. We are splitting our time between Paris and Alexandria, VA, but would like to be back in touch. horne.mn@verizon.net or horne.jp@verizon.net
