Frank Chapter 43 (out this Winter) will be guest curated by legendary NYC street photographer Ricky Powell. He has enthusiastically dubbed this the “Bug Out!” edition. ‘To celebrate the release of Chapter 43 as well as Ricky’s Silver Anniversary of “taking professional photos on a hangout tip,” select images from the Bug Out! chapter will be on display at Sacred Gallery in NYC this December. The show will kick off with The Ricky Powell Art Funk Explosion on Thursday, December 9th, featuring music by Chances with Wolves. Make sure you email your RSVP to events(at)frank151.com. The art show will run until the end of December, when Ricky Powell will conduct a World Famous Slideshow to bring the exhibit to a close.’ -Frank Green (Frank151) via Frank151 About a month and a half ago, the Rickster came by Frank’s Chop Shop to hang out and get a quick clean up by your boy (pause). Mr. Powell is a Character, he had me LOL the whole time – Literally. Here’s the video clip from that day. It was an honor to be able to kick it with the Rickster and give him a haircut. Dude is a Pioneer and I’ve been a fan of his work for years. Check out some classic flicks on his site or Google: ‘Ricky Powell’
