News from the Gihon Foundation:
Before the town of Marfa, Texas, became known for Donald Judd's exquisite, innovative art installations, it gained notoriety as the place where Hollywood came to shoot a portion of the blockbuster hit movie Giant in 1955. In mid-October, a new mural installation will honor that film with a freestanding, larger than life plywood cutout scene titled 'Giant Marfa.' Artist John Cerney has paired with Michael Nesmith to add an audio-visual element to his art installation. To raise money for the installation's expenses, the Gihon Foundation is raffling off two satin canvas prints (24" X 36") of an image created by Cerney to mark the festivities surrounding the installation of 'Giant Marfa'. Cerney and Nesmith have graciously offered to autograph both of them for this raffle. You can learn more about Cerney and his work by going to his website at johncerneymurals.com
The way projects align creatively -- the arts working together -- is a focus of the Gihon Foundation, who in collaboration with the Wyatt Ranches, and the Marfa Chamber of Commerce, are putting on a free concert to celebrate Cerneys gift of 'Giant Marfa' to the town and its occupants. Michael Nesmith & The First National Band Redux will play a free concert at the Hotel Paisano on Saturday, October 20, at 7:30pm.

Praise for Infinite Tuesday
"Penetrating... As a writer, Nesmith is practical without being conventional. And he riffs on metaphysical topics like 'non-time moments' -- when portent and symmetry seem to enter our lives -- without sounding trippy or losing his relatability. He also abstains from using his pen to settle scores, something from which other celebrity memoirists could learn. In fact, he's delightfully self-deprecating... [Infinite Tuesday is] a nonlinear realm to which [Nesmith] is a distinctly likable, erudite guide."
"In his memoir, Infinite Tuesday, the highlights of [Nesmith's] career speak for themselves... Jimi Hendrix, who supported the Monkees on their first tour, got the Monkees; John Lennon got the Monkees; Zappa did too. These countercultural icons understood the genius of its premise -- simultaneously celebrating and satirizing popular culture, fabricating a faux-Beatlemania to rival Beatlemania itself -- and recognized its brilliant execution."
"Reads like the chronicle of a relentless seeker... although Nesmith certainly doesn't ignore the professional and social collaborations he's had with Douglas Adams, members of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, actor Jack Nicholson and numerous others."
"This selectively revealing, insightful memoir casts the cerebral Monkee as a spiritual seeker and self-deprecating visionary. Popular culture has barely revealed the tip of the iceberg that is Nesmith . . . . A book -- and a life -- unlike any other in rock."
"Nesmith may be most remembered for his role as the stoic guitarist in the Monkees, but his brilliant, candid, and humorous new autobiographical musings give readers a much clearer picture of his originality and inventiveness... Nesmith's entertaining memoir reveals his creative genius, his canny ability never to take himself too seriously, and his restless questions about the value of spirituality."
