Somehow I found myself searching for Martin Kryska, my Dartmouth classmate who died in a car accident in 1992. I didn’t remember that he was at Anderson Ranch arts center near Vail, CO in residency at the time of the accident. Martin was a woodworker and sculptor, although more people probably thought of him as a Nordic skier and athlete.
I found a website that has footage of the top ten finishers in the Mt. Washington race, with Kryska placing fourth. I made this somewhat eerie still shot of his finish.
I am tempted to call a number I found and talk to the person who curated a posthumous show of Martin’s sculpture in 1995 at Dartmouth, in Hanover, N.H. It also appears that the catalog of that show is at Stanford’s Green Library.
edita the next day: I did try artist Pamela Joseph in CO a couple times and left a message saying I wanted to ask her about Dartmouth.
edit to add, three years later: Dartmouth archive has a nice photo of Martin, plus a group shot of C&T.
