John Baldessari is literally a living legend. Not only has he exhibited internationally 
more than most  living artists but he has blazed the trail for millions of young artists who 
consider him a mentor, colleague, peer, and friend. I was fortunate enough to work with John 
for a few years while getting my  MFA at UCLA and I have to say that he was one of the most 
giving professors that I’ve ever had. He always had time for his students and had explosive energy 
hat was infectious. Commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art and narrated 
by Tom Waits this six minute documentary is a playful tribute to the man the call 
The Godfather Of Conceptual Art
