About this title:

Synopsis: Literary Nonfiction. Drama. Texts by Ronald Bladen, Lois Dodd, Sally Hazelet Drummond, Al Held, Alex Katz, William King, Phillip Pearlstein, and George Sugarman. "My first serious artwork started in West Virginia, in the classroom in Wheeling. We stayed there until that packing house went bankrupt, and we went back to Pittsburgh. After we moved back to Pittsburgh when I was eleven or twelve, we moved into a house with all my father's brothers and sisters and my grandmother, and all these people shared three bedrooms. I shared a bedroom with my grandmother and two aunts. That is the time when my interest in making art picked up. It was strange. This family was not cultured, but my father's youngest sister and youngest brother did go to the theater. They had jobs as sales clerks in a downtown drug store. My aunt took me to the theater a couple of times. I became very interested in stage design, and I made my own miniature theater. Looking back, I can't remember where I picked up the information, but I was involved in building a stage to scale, with a lighting system, and designing shows with miniature sets. One of my uncles one night burned down my stage. The house was very small, and my tabletop theater took up too much space, but I have had mixed feelings about my uncles ever since."—Phillip Pearlstein, excerpt
