In loving memory to Roy Lee Barnes
9 Feb 1936 – 29 October 2006
Ars Gratia Artis
This is an excerpt from a conversation I had with my late father Roy Barnes who served in the entertainment industry for close to 30 years as a member of both the Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800) and the Set Designers & Model Makers Guild (IATSE Local 847).
In this snippet we talk about the meaning of art. This recording took place in the ICU ward of St. Joseph’s hospital only a few days before he passed away from cancer.
Note: My father is receiving supplemental oxygen during these recordings therefore a slight hiss can be heard throughout.
