We interviewed our friend Slim for Free Gold today. Just like Tim he talked a lot about not getting caught up in Internet hype and just being true to you. These days, in this culture, we couldn’t agree more.
Free Gold loves sitting down with like minded friends. Full interviews coming verrrryyy soon!
Huffington Post: If there was one piece of advice you would give youth contemplating art… what would it be?
Danny Simmons: What the hell… go for it.

Love good people coming together for a good cause, we had a beautiful energy last night at Hotel Americano’s first Art Americano. It’s a shame if you missed out but don’t worry, Free Gold will be involved in more Art Americanos with more good people. Pinky swear promise.

Free Gold got a sneak peek of Lucie Fontaine: Estate at Marianne Boesky’s 64th street space last week before the opening.
Fontaine and her employees have been occupying the space since August 15. After the public opening on September 15 Fontaine returned to her hometown while her employees stayed behind to continue to maintain the space and exhibition along with the gallery staff. This literal live/work environment is worth a visit.
Estate is on view through October 15.
