2nd\NE Quadrant The Approval Matrix

Artist Robert Rauschenberg...died Monday [May 12, 2008] at the age of 82. The Times describes him as a "brash, garrulous, hard-drinking, open-faced Southerner." Rauschenberg started out making art out of junk he found on the streets of lower Manhattan, announcing that if you didn't find "soap dishes or mirrors or Coke bottles" beautiful than you must be a miserable bastard. -- Gawker
