Saturday night, around 2 AM after the parade and illuminated cruise in Houston, Tom Jones, cartist, photographer, lead singer for the Floaters, curator at the ACM, and all around great guy, was standing out on the sidewalk when a young drunk driver (not an art car driver) hit a parked car, flipping it over onto him. He was rushed to Ben Taub hospital, where he passed away during surgery. Cartists have been out at the museum today, hanging tributes on the fence, burning incense, crying, and hugging each other.
Here’s the Houston Chronicle story:
Here’s an interview w/ Tom in his role of curator:
