    John Scott [AAM 48362]
    New York Conservation Foundation, in NYC

    Timothy 'Blues' Farley, international-impact art packing pioneer, trainer, mentor, and lecturer, prolific self-taught "outsider" artist, diarist and poet, and erudite musicologist of North American traditional and popular genres, was Head of art packing and transport for the Philadelphia Museum of Art from the late 1970s into the 1990s, most active in AAM and AIC contexts early-late 1980s. During the 1990s through 2014 Blues continued with museum collections care consulting, contracting, and project teams, and often joined outdoor sculpture conservation projects and teaching, in addition to unrelated vocations. Blues has enjoyed an energetic very colorful, productive and generous life affecting many, many people including numerous museum, art and music folk. Blues recently began hospice care with indeterminate prognosis, in a daughter's home near Philadelphia.

    Get back in touch with Blues
    Farley, soon! Blues is quite alive, he much enjoys talking in person and on the phone, and he welcomes calls at just about any time, day and night. Several local-region long time close friends spent a few hours with Blues and family on Saturday 9/8 and found Blues mentally sharp, in good spirits and talkative, reminiscing in fine humor. Please call ahead of visits, and in phoning please always call back if Blues cannot pick up right away. Blues' mobile: 267-474-8231.  Blues' street address: Tim 'Blues' Farley, c/o Joanne Tyson & Scott Overbay, 114 Preston Ave., Voorhees, NJ, 08043. The Tysone-Overbay home is close to Interstate 295's Exit 32, and an easy three blocks from PATCO's Ashland Metro station.
