Tuesday, June 2, 1981

Got up early. Chris was picking me up to go to the Whitney show of that artist who we’ve known for a while, the one influenced by me who does the billboardlike Polaroids of faces—I can’t think of his name … Chuck Close.

And then we also went to look at the Guglielmi thing downstairs. His wife could never sell his paintings, and now here he is, at the Whitney with a big show. I wanted to know if she was still alive, and I was going to ask somebody who worked there and I ended up giving out Interviews instead. She used to have me to dinner in the fifties, she was kind of generous. She lived in the Café des Artistes.

And then we looked at the forties show and then you think how much better Chuck Close is than the painters in that show.

Then we went over to the Port Authority Bus Terminal (cab $6). They’re still renovating over there. We went into Walgreen’s to photograph some of the real people and then we asked the waitress if we could take pictures and she went to ask the manager and he said yes, if we didn’t show the name “Walgreen’s.” But all we wanted to photograph was this waitress and she had Walgreen’s written all over her (Walgreen’s $7).
