Red Grooms' Ruckus Rodeo re-creates in book form one of the artists' remarkable "sculpto-pictoramas". Six pop-up panels depict the cowboys, cowgirls, Brahma bulls, bucking broncos and all the rowdy excitement of an American rodeo.
Included is an illustrated essay on Grooms' life and work by Barbara Haskell, curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Ruckus Rodeo captures the creative genius of Red Grooms at his flamboyant best and is a keepsake for all who treasure the unique artistic spirit it embodies.
The book has red pictorial covers. Each panel folds and and the scene pulls down to reveal all its three dimensional wonder. The book is in very good condition with one tear of the cowboy hat on one panel (see photos).
