A bit of sad news.... Kevin Curry

A bit of sad news....Lawndale studio resident Kevin Curry was injured in a bike accident early last Tuesday morning. Good news is he is home and doing ok. He was on his way home from the benefit for Leigh Boone and was hit by a car right outside of his driveway. The car didn't stop. He was taken by ambulance the ER at Hermann in the Medical Center and called Dennis early Tuesday morning. I made it up to the ER by 6 and Dennis was there soon after. They released him from the hospital later that morning. He has a huge gash in his head and cuts and bruises on the right side of his face (but no fracture to his skull), two chipped front teeth and a sprained ankle. We are stopping by daily, making sure he has a steady stream of folks checking in and to see if he needs anything. We're all really relieved that he was not hurt worse and are hoping he will be back up at Lawndale working soon.

Anita Garten made this wonderful suggestion. Would you all be willing to pitch in a little to help Kevin get a new bike? Although he has a car, he uses his bike to get around town, to and form Lawndale and to his job at the Museum of Printing History.

I will be looking into what is the best way is to do this through Lawndale, but please, in the meantime, let me know if you are interested in contributing something towards this effort. Thanks!
