The Art of Dick Siegel
When the pixels are on fire
Legendary local folkie Dick Siegel stops before a head shot of a 1950s-era robot. Its bolts-for-ears, grille teeth, and raised arm provoke giggles. Siegel raises his own arm: "Hail!"
It's Marvelous Mike, a yellow robot-bulldozer combo that Siegel played with as a child until it broke. "But then I found it on eBay!" says Siegel. "So I bought three!" two of which are reverently arrayed on a cabinet in his home.
