Paul McMahon is a multidisciplinary artist and the creator of the "Welcome to Woodstock" bumper sticker series. (Examples include: "Welcome to Woodstock: Your Reality Check Bounced," and "Welcome to Woodstock: If You Lived Here You'd Be Om Now.") Noted local satirist Mikhail Horowitz described McMahon as "One of the advance scouts for a benevolent civilization of extraterrestrial artists that is planning to settle on Planet Earth, sometime after Donald Trump is defeated." An eccentric singer-songwriter, McMahon performs as a rock 'n' roll therapist, inviting audience members to share their problems and then transforming them into songs on the spot. "Disguised as a spaced-out hippie, Paul McMahon reorders American logic through visual art, bumper stickers, and song," commented Chronogram contributor Sparrow. Paul McMahon will give a free presentation on August 20 at 5pm at the Woodstock Library.
