Patrick M. Tierney is a third generation Angelino and multi-disciplinary artist and writer whose work draws much of its nutriment from his expeditionary probes into what (he insists) is popularly and unjustifiably perceived as the "culturally fallow prairie land" of Los Angeles exurban fringe. He recently completed a large body of collage and assemblage that is reflective of period Los Angeles roadside vernacular and design. His focus at present is on a compilation of drawings, writings, charted data, and photographs with the working title Mouse Latitudes in which he will demonstrate why Disneyland matters. --Eric Saks
