In a Nut’s Shell, Pat Oleszko — a multi-disciplined Artist of Some Repute — has worked from the popular art forms of the street, party, parade, stage, film and burlesque house, to the Museum of Modern Art and Lincoln Center, from Sesame Street Magazine to Ms, Playboy and Artforum. Literally a much decorated artist, she has been rewarded for her perverse efforts including 4 NEA grants, 4 NYFA’s, the Rome Prize, a Guggenheim, the DAAD (Berlin) and a Bessie for Sustained Achievement.
Oleszko has created a ruckus for years and by playing the fool, many have happily paid this Fool with splendid results. From lectures to performances on the stage or site specific, workshops of one hour, one day, one week and longer, these unique and unpredictable events have played at colleges, museums, businesses, communities, parades and so on and sew, forth. To answer the call for spectacles magnified by rampant visuals, uttered shenanigans and a genial absurd presence, hire the HandyPat.
