Thanks to all of Professor John Kurtich’s colleagues and students during this sad time. John loved all of you and we are grateful to have shared the multitude of memories with you.

It was all about you
It was all about us
1400 Prune Street Hollister California
Blond becurled boy
In the grass
Summers in Cambria
Watching ships in the harbor
Unloading Hearst Castle
You were a lode stone who
Prismed the everyday
Into radiant brilliance
Columbia, Berkeley, Rome
Athens, London, Paris, Berlin
Mount Olympusís Vision!
Life is not for finding yourself
Life is to be lived!
I met you in Muncie
36 slide projectors, 10,000 slides
Cornfields of Indiana observed and glorified
Architect, Cinematographer, Urbanist.
Painter, Photographer, Filmmaker,
treasured travel, travel treasures,
travel teacher, time travel
It was all about you
Itís all about us
Books on the shelves
Boxes of toys in the mail
Barges on the canal
Chicago. The Art Institute…Samothrace!
The Keys to your kingdom
Unlocked the secrets of our school
Art is life. Life is art.

Like the glass asks for wine
Eros: God of Love and Beauty
Agape: Goddess of Truth.
Zeus, Athena, Aphrodite, Circe,
Dionysian dance of happiness
Imaginations MetaPhysically Realized
Multi Media Museum Masterpieces
Slow solemn soulfull searches
The sublime Illuminated
Looking beneath the glass darkly
The Visual Splendour Experienced
Seeing face to face clearly
You introduced me to Mark
And Children followed
1..2..3..4..and yes, they all play the piano
Seven souls, seven circles
Seven layers of life to go
Architecture, Interior Architecture, Designed Objects
We continue to know.
