Never Put a Hat on a Bed
—Don Quaintance on Walter Hopps
"He'd call me sometimes at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m., from House of Pancakes or somewhere like that, and ask things like, 'What's the price of a Joseph Cornell lithograph?'"
The Houston Chronicle collects memories of curator Walter Hopps (Ferus Gallery, Pasadena Museum, Menil Collection) on the occasion of the memoir/biography, The Dream Colony, by Hopps with Deborah Treisman and Anne Doran.
