Talking to Mike Stilkey

Question: Tell me about “Reminiscent”

This was a commission piece and was in 2 parts when I created it. When the show came down they moved the piece to there Nike 225 store in Laguna Beach and stacked the 2 on top of each other, at which point I came down and connected them by painting her hair turning into the piano. They had a contest to see how who could guess how many books were in the piece.

   77   88

They received hundreds of votes and one lucky young kid guessed correct and won a bag of Hurley-Nike goodies. I think the final count was 3400 or something like that. When they finally took the piece down they donated the piano half to Laguna Beach High School (It’s in the Library) and the other half lives at Hurley.
