Sue Bitney was a Northern California artist who’s work was generally classified as “funk”. Her work became quite popular in Europe, and Kurt von Meier contributed a commentary about her art for a 1967 catalog produced by Studio Marconi, in Milan, Italy. In his commentary, he wryly notes “In general, funky art wasn't nice. So all the nice-nice people around San Francisco who use art as a convenient commodity with which to shore up their own social and cultural pretensions tended to turn their backs. Somehow funk art just didn't look right in the marble museum halls of Mammon's minions.” A thank-you note from Sue to Kurt is included in this posting.
