Keller's Bust

Toby Covich teaches art at Placer High School, he has for many years.  The Cafe Rock lunchtime show is played in the class everyday, and his students start their class the same way everyday.."We're hungry!!". 21 years ago, as a class project, Toby's students made a ceramic fishbowl, with a stand and complete with all kinds of fish and fish by-products in the bowl. It was a wonderful piece and has been with me all these years. Now, 25 years later Toby came by with his student Jason Hicks who presented me with a bust of me. It was Jason's senior project. It was done in the style of 'Arneson', the man who did the controversial Mayor Moscone statue in San Francisco. What an honor for me. Not only to be such a big part of this class all these years, but to have it's students be so inspired to make Cafe Rock themed works. Here is a picture of Toby, his student Jason, and myself. Notice the other person in the room. Amazing. The Bob Keller Bust now lives at the Cafe Rock and you'll have to rub his head for good luck next time you come in. Thank-you Toby and Jason. You made my day.
