More Tut

There’s some more Tut stuff I ran across after my previously posted article on E. John Bullard and NOMA’s coup of an exhibit back in 1977 of The Treasures of Tutankhamun. Just a couple of photos: my parent’s still have the exhibition catalog, which I snapped a pic of at Thanksgiving; and, this photo of Lelong Drive painted as the Blue Nile. This was sent by Emery Clark, one of the artists who was in charge of the army of students who made it happen:

    Wow-thanks for the pic-threw me back to the past…I was one of the army of students you mentioned. We were NOCCA students-I was nearly 17 at the time. I saved the pants I wore when painting it-stained with all the colors. I don’t believe I actually saw a pic of the Nile till now-Many thanks!

    I remember helping on this, too. It was part of a formative year in my art career! Everybody needs to start somewhere, and we NOCCA students were Emery Clark’s art slaves!

    I loved working on this as well. It seems like yesterday. There are some things in life that would be worth re-doing; this was one of those experiences.

    I worked on the NOMA Nile as well—loved being a part of it.
