A new documentary about Vonnegut prompts memories of first encountering the author.
The museum, located in Vonnegut’s hometown of Indianapolis, is a goldmine of relics to the writer’s life and career, including his reading glasses, Purple Heart, typewriter, and letters.
Drawings by Kurt Vonnegut long kept in storage are getting the monograph treatment with a new publication of his playful, line-driven art. Kurt Vonnegut Drawings, coming next month from the Monacelli Press, features 145 selections of his work.
Press releases for exhibitions deserve their bad reputation. They’re usually as boring as wallpaper, and they all use the same bromide phrases with the word “ubiquitous” thrown in at least once for good measure. But, then, proving there’s always an exception, I came across a release for the inaugural show at Fridman Gallery, The World and Its Things in the Middle of Their Intimacy.
