Brian P., of Newport, Rhode Island, came to the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW with records of his great-grandfather, Charles Edward Minor. The collection, was valued by appraiser Gary Piattoni at between $2,500 and $3,500, he was a decorated African American seaman a mere 20 years after the abolition of slavery.
After retiring from the Navy at 52, Minor had the wherewithal to buy a four-bedroom home in Newport and to invest in the stock market. Again, Minor was ahead of his time. Says Brian, "Some of the stocks didn't pan out, but he was buying stocks a hundred at a time during the Great Depression. Black man or white man, that's something." True, yet it is all the more remarkable for a black man in a society that would be segregated by law for another 30 years.

Today’s conversation will focus on how important it is to maintain close collaboration with our partners, who share the common aspiration of creating a global platform for the exchange of ideas that drive the art world forward. Lavon N. Pettis of Global Resources Innovative Development, a project management consultant that finds solutions, strategies, and support in the development of art initiatives.
Partnerships are essential for the support of cultural events. The longevity of our relationships are indicative of how focused and successful Phantom Gallery Chicago Network is in supporting our partners in achieving their goals.
Project logistics held surprises as well. One of the unexpected challenges cited by organizers was the degree to which coordinating projects across multiple partners created enormous complexities.

Holz Hollywood is the true Hollywood story of photographer George Holz. George Holz was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee , graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and assisted for Helmut Newton, whom he credits with guiding his career. As a fledgling photographer, he lived in Milan and Paris, where he shot beauty and fashion for major European magazines such as Italian Vogue and French Elle. Afterward, he moved to New York City, where he set up his famous studio on Lafayette Street, traveling frequently to Los Angeles and Europe to shoot fashion, advertising, and portraiture for major publications such as Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar. His fine-art nudes have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world.

Holz has collected a variety of prestigious industry awards over the years including a Grammy and a Clio. Holz works as an adjunct professor and lectures internationally at museums and universities, mentoring young photographers and passing on his photographic aspirations to “always begin and end with light, ” to “do it all in-camera,” and to “bring modern photography back to the level of the artful burn and dodge of the past.”Holz continues to travel extensively for his commercial work, fine-art shows, and lectures, and is currently working on several projects, including his upcoming book of nudes. He presently bases in the rustic Catskill Mountains of New York, where he lives on a farm with his family, two dogs, and flock of East Friesian sheep. When not exploring remote locations and photographing his muses, George’s favorite pastimes include traveling the American backroads in his '58 Airstream and conversing with his chocolate lab, Ruby.

An alumnus of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Dan Kainen's art has been exhibited in the Ronald Feldman Gallery in Soho, among other New York galleries and private collections. In the 1980s Kainen started experimenting with holography, and then with integrated images. This led to three patents in that field, the latest of which is the basis for a new Photicular™ book: POLAR, that takes readers on a stunning journey to the remote, mysterious, and severe Arctic and Antarctic.
David Good is a Yanomami-American, his mother a Yanomami residing in the Amazon Rainforest of southeastern Venezuela. His father, Kenneth Good, is an American anthropologist whom studied the Yanomami people for decades, which is where he met David’s mom.

Now David tells his own story in his fascinating new memoir, THE WAY AROUND, FINDING MY MOTHER & MYSELF AMONG THE YANOMAMI a story of self-discovery, of being of two worlds, growing up in New Jersey, his mother’s abandonment and return to her tribe in the Amazon when he was six, the heavy toll that took on his childhood and the near-fatal car accident that gave him a purpose: to find a way back to his mom. Good is the founder and executive director of The Good Project, a nonprofit service organization dedicated to the education, health care, and preservation of indigenous groups in South and Central America.

Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia.

Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.
Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey.
