OFFBEATS Sidewalk Book Launch

Lower East Side artist-archivist Clayton Patterson and author John Strausbaugh come to Printed Matter/St. Marks for a sidewalk launch and sale of their new book OFFBEATS: LOWER EAST SIDE PORTRAITS. It's a collection of their writings about some fascinating Lower East Side figures who have given the neighborhood its unique character. It includes portraits of NO!art founder Boris Lurie; artist and street gang leader Cochise; Yiddish theater star Molly Picon; and R. O. Tyler, aka Dr. Uranian, an early collaborator with Bread & Puppet Theater's Peter Schumann -- and godfather of Printed Matter's Executive Director Max Schumann.
