“…Having the HCC culinary department downtown will be huge. It’s going to benefit all the building owners. It’s going to benefit everyone who is already doing business down here. It’s going to make it much more attractive for other businesses.” -State Rep Vega.

These particular scenes are cut from a 25-minute video called, A Tour of the Museum of Fine Arts In Boston with Dan Pike and Bill Bob. I did this and other art-spoof videos with my friend and fellow artist, Greg Amenoff between 1974 and 78. I’ve been meaning to convert these for many years but hadn’t taken the time until now. I divided the MFA video into 8 different bits.
We did these with one of the very first reel to reel Panasonic “Portapacks.” Of course, B/W and ancient by todays standards.We almost got these on SNL back then, but they took Bill Wegman’s dog videos instead. We made the MFA video under a National Endowment grant from the Education dept of the MFA. Not sure if the people we worked with kept their jobs after this video was released?
Altogether, there’s about 20 other short vignettes we did and I’m working on those for fun in my spare time.

This is a 3-minute bit from the videos I did in the 70’s you may find amusing. -Dean Nimmer, February 2015

This is another satirical video made by Greg Amenoff (Bill Bob) and myself (Dan Pike) with our “Fine Art Troupers” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in the mid-1970’s. This bit is called “Hovering Bubbles”. -Dean Nimmer, February 2015

This is another satirical video made by Greg Amenoff (Bill Bob) and myself (Dan Pike) with our “Fine Art Troupers” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in the mid-1970’s. This bit is called “Oriental Sculpture Expert” – you have to see it to get it.
Incredible that we got away with these antics filmed in the actual museum, but it was sponsored by the MFA’s, art education dept as a “public service video.” I think they were all fired soon after it’s release! -Dean Nimmer, February 2015
