It sure seems weird wishing "Happy Birthday" to a Larger-than-Life dead artist of Robert Mapplethorpe's caliber and notoriety. The guy was only human and he has an amazing story to tell. So here's a birthday salute to a man who "drank from the well", absorbed the lessons, and threw it back into America's face beautifully.

Did I mention that he studied at Parsons?

OOPS, he studied painting at Pratt, not Parsons. Sorry for the confusion.
