Holyoke Community College will receive a $1.75 million state grant to construct a Center for Hospitality and Culinary Excellence in downtown Holyoke.

“…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.

Dean Nimmer & Greg Amenoff 1974 – 78

Dean Nimmer & Greg Amenoff 1974 – 78

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.

Hovering Bubbles

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

Oriental Sculptural Expert

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

Librarians

This is a 3-minute video clip of Greg Amenoff and me explaining “portraiture” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1978 – yes, 1978. This was one segment of many satire videos we did on art and museums, and yes, those are mutton chop sideburns I had back then. -Dean Nimmer, February 2015

Pyramid – Day Two

The near perfect proportions of my pyramid have atrophied somewhat.. so I thought I’d spiff up the scene with some moving pictures. Katie Richardson (katierayart.com) nominated me for the Viral Art Challenge. I found all this white stuff lying around my front yard so I built a seven foot pyramid. ‪#‎viralartchallenge‬
