JUST HEARD OF HIS PASSING. MANY YEARS AGO, I HAD THE PLEASURE AND HONOR OF WORKING WITH HIM AT THE WHITNEY. AS A VERY JUNIOR STUDENT OF ART HISTORY, HE GAVE ME THE,OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH HIM ON A MULTI-SLIDE SHOW WHICH EXHIBITED CONTEMPORARY ARTIST. AS HIS PRODUCTION ASSISTANT, I LEARNED MUCH; AND IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE. RUSSELL WAS A KIND AND GIVING PERSON. HE SHARED HIS LOVE AND PASSION OF ART; AND INSTILLED IT TO ALL AROUND, IN PARTICULAR, TARGETING HE SHARED PROJECTS WITH. I ADMIRED AND RESPECTED HIM ENORMOUSLY. I'D LIKE TO BELIEVE, HE HAS ADDED A TOUCH OF HIS COLIRFUL MIND TO THE HEAVENS. THANK YOU RUSSELL!
