Los Angeles Times:  A mention of my being the Michelin Man on May 7, 2016 (May 6, 2016 - by Carolina A. Miranda)
"Datebook: Portraits of pugilists, a key L.A. collagist gets his due, and a piano show about destruction"
      Article section: "L.A. collagist gets his due"   Permalink 1   Permalink 2

     An error I found was the article stating that the show opens on "Saturday May 6",
      when it actually opened on Saturday May 7.
      Quote:
            "John Kilduff, at Daniel Rolnik Gallery. Kilduff, known as “Mr. Let’s Paint” for his wild painting performances
            on treadmills, has a new show opening at Daniel Rolnik that is part conceptual flower shop,and  part paean to
            vintage Americana.  For the former, the artist is painting specially commissioned canvases of flowers for $100
            a pop (just in time for Mother’s Day) and in the area he calls “The Cavern” he is featuring works inspired by
            the show “American Pickers,” which includes renderings of bits of garage sale detritus, as well as a full-blown
            pinball machine crafted out of cardboard. Opens Saturday at 6 p.m. and runs through June 1.  There will be a
            special performance by the Radioactive Chicken Heads and appearance by MQ Schmidt as the Michelin Man
            during the opening. 2675 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City, danielrolnikgallery.com"
