This section is dedicated to the vision of the Doof Museum of Culture and History. What it has looked like in its years as an ever evolving installation.
For curators of galleries or museums please contact me for a complete prospectus regarding the size, shipping and installation possibilities for the Doof Museum.
The Doofs were first exhibited at the Nathan Larramendy gallery in 2005.
In 2008, as part of a diorama exhibit at The Bedford Gallery, I created a small installation that featured a tabletop diorama of a Doof-inspired roadside attraction. This work was the inspiration behind the idea of creating an installation of a mock museum which would display all the diverse artwork and artifacts from its vast collections. In 2009, I realized this vision and installed the mock museum at the Diablo Valley College Art Gallery. The installation featured artists and their work, artifacts from the collection and videos. In 2009, The museum was reinvented at Studio Quercus, a nonprofit art and entertainment space in Oakland CA. In 2013, the Great Wall of Doof was erected at Echo Gallery. This installation consisted of wall hanging Doof assemblages and a diminutive Doof Shack which contained miniatures of the pieces hanging on the wall. Small alternate versions of the museum have appeared at the San Francisco Art Fair and the CCA Logan gallery.
