TACOMA DOME FLOWER, JANUARY 2006

WHEN THE TACOMA DOME WAS FIRST CONSTRUCTED IN 1983, A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS WAS DISTRIBUTED, LOOKING FOR ARTIST DESIGNS FOR THE BUILDING'S ROOF. ONE OF THE RESPONDERS WAS ANDY WARHOL, WHOSE PROPOSAL WAS THE "TACOMA DOME FLOWER." THE GOVERNING BOARD INSTEAD CHOSE THE EXISTING DESIGN OF OVERLAPPING TRIANGLES. AHH, WELL.

LANCE'S DESIGN ON THIS POSTER WAS RENDERED THROUGH A PRINTER'S BLANKET CUT AND SOLDERING WIRE GLUED TO A PLYWOOD BASE. TOM'S WORDS ARE BASED ON A STORY FROM THE LIFE OF GHENGIS KHAN.
