Texas Leap Frog

On or about the fall of 1988 I collaborated with a group of young artists who agreed to play Leap Frog through the State Capitol Building in Austin, Texas, and then onto the grounds surrounding, as a piece of performance art. I was the organizer of the event, and also the documentarian. On this the 20th-ish anniversary of the performance I have brought forth the evidence from the vault to share.

Some of the names of the collaborators are lost to me. Those that I can recall: Khaled Niaz Mansur, Brian Smith, residents of "Casa de las chicas", Brian's roomate Sam, Khaled's girlfriend at the time Penny, all contributed to the spirited jumping and bounding. I would ask my friends who were there to help me remember.
