|Goofy Garden Golf is a collaboration of author-artist Maria Reidelbach and artist Ken Brown, who together have a unique combination of expertise and knowledge on the subject of miniature golf. Maria, also the project director, has co-authored a history of the subject (Miniature Golf, Abbeville Press, 1987 with Nina Garfinkel and John Margolies) and Ken is the creator of a documentary short film about mini golf. Maria has been project manager and creative consultant for a full scale carousel and for over twenty years Ken has designed, published and produced numerous pop-culture inspired art works and products.
Essential assistance was provided by Steven Ott, a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts. Although Steven is a photographer, he had the varied and quirky construction skills we needed to accomplish the project.
