1937 (Nashville, Tenn.) –

Hofmann taught him (Grooms’ mother had seen an article about him in ‘Life’ magazine). He opened his studio as a gallery, and gave Dine and Oldenburg jointly their first shows in New York, also exhibiting Katz, almost the first person Grooms met when he moved to the city. Burckhardt, whom Grooms thinks he met through Katz, made several films with him; Glass was another collaborator.
