This website is Bill Wolf’s
story, the one he wanted to tell, about his life and his art. He always
thought of himself and his friends as artists and he was always ready
with a new project and always ready to help his friends
realize their ideas.
To Bill being an artist
was the way you lived your life. It included everything:
painting and drawing, design, acting, directing; writing, creating
conceptual art pieces and installations, community outreach programs
supporting gay, elderly and AIDS. He made floats for parades, he was
a standup comedian – “the worst MC in San Francisco” - and - well, it’s
all in here.
Then one day he got sick.
He didn’t tell anybody about it and he died quickly. He was creating and
planning the next project until his last day.
At the time of his death, a friend,
Michele Gibbs, an American poet and painter and resident of Oaxaca,
Mexico, where Bill lived for a long time, wrote the following tribute to
“Bill Wolf was an artist to the
bone. His spirit radiated menschkeit, alegria, luz & piz-azz. His
concerns were broad and his commitments deep. His presence always made
a positive difference. Through the work of the Frente Comun Contra SIDA,
he saved lives. Bill was cool. Of his life we can say bien hecho! --
well done! He was with us until the last possible moment, presente y en
frente -- front and present; he is with us still.”

started. The record of some of these group projects may be added on this site, outside of
How long will this site be here? There are web
hosting places that offer a “forever” deal, whatever that means. We’ll
see. Or maybe you’ll see. No one has offered me a forever deal yet.
