Colbert’s ‘Ashes and Snow’

“Everyone has an idea that L.A. is not interested in culture,” “Ashes and Snow” producer Gregory Colbert admitted to me.

Forget it…

His remarkable, one-of-a-kind show in the nomadic museum alongside the Pier in Santa Monica was home to 8,510 art-environment-showbiz lovers Sunday (May 7). We were among the awe-struck who viewed his 14-years-in-the-work show.

You’d better hurry — it closes May 14.

By that time close to half a million from this area will have seen his show. And also 15 million hits on its web site.

Next stop — next year — will be Tokyo, followed by Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, London.

Meanwhile Colbert heads out on another global trek to chronicle the never-before-seen sites of man, beast and the environment.

He heads out to Mongolia, Sri Lanka, the desert high sands in the Empty Quarter of the earth as part of his continuing work in progress.

The Rolex Institute is the supporter — but there’s never a sign of any sponsorship — in other words no commercials of any kind — anywhere.

Canadian-born Colbert says the response from the L.A. area has been so intense he is further encouraged to spend more time here on his education outreach program.

He says L.A. is one of the few places where there is a common ground in a diversity of cultures. “People are starving for culture and want to have things that inspire us.”

Colbert plans to continue to feed the appetite of this culture-starving world.
