The Poetic Research Bureau presents
TODD GRAY

For one year, the artist Todd Gray wore the clothes of his friend and mentor the late Ray Manzarek, a founding member of the Doors. An act that went beyond artistic homage or memorial impulse. Manzarek's widow, Dorothy, gave Gray the clothes and permission to perform the year long action.

Gray will read letters he wrote to Dorothy recounting his experience and its affect on him.

Following the reading Gray will show photographs he made as a teenager chronicling the Los Angeles rock scene in a discussion with Joseph Mosconi.
