Thom Ross's Buffalo Bill Installation
Recently an artist named Thom Ross reproduced a historical photograph taken on Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Buffalo Bill's Wild West group posed on the beach for a photo. The artist Thom Ross made many two-dimensional wooden statues and painted Indian figures from the Wild West show on them. He set them all up on Ocean Beach and kept them there for several days. I have a picture of some of the statues and the artist below. He also had a tent with historical information, including the original black and white photo.
