>George Schneeman: Painter Among Poets 1934 -2009

>New York City painter George Schneeman passed away this January. He was a frequent collaborator with generations of Lower East Side poets, including Ed Berrigan, Larry Fagin, Dick Gallup, Alice Notley, Bill Berkson, Anne Waldman, Ron Padgett and Allen Ginsberg and very much part of the neightborhood’s cultural fabric. Anne Waldman’s wonderful short appreciation of his life in the current Poetry Project Newsletter (below) is a moving introduction to the painter among poets for those unfamiliar. Tributes & poems from Tom Clark, Alice Notley & Ron Padgett are in the same issue. New York Times have also paid their respects.
