  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Robert Goren: Did you know that there's an original Salvador Dali hanging at Rikers Island? He donated it in the '60s.

      The painting referenced was an untitled paint and charcoal sketch of the crucifixion donated by Salvador Dali in 1965 for the prison dining area, as an apology for being too sick to fulfill his promise to attend an art workshop at the prison. It was hung in various sites within the prison until March, 2003, when it was stolen by a group of prison officers, and later reportedly destroyed in a panic by the former superintendent who masterminded the theft. No proof of the destruction or a black market sale has been found to date.
