Curtis Otto

Episode 10: I spoke with Tommi Drake of Grant’s Pass Museum in Oregon about the Curtis Otto exhibition.  Tommi was a personal friend of Otto’s and shared some inside stories about what a character he was and what his inspirations were, which was mainly his life on the West Coast. He had a really large collection of work, as he was always painting, but not interested in selling or exhibiting.
