Ultra Violet

As we were putting the final touches on the Warhol Issue of MOOC Magazine, we received the sad news that Factory Superstar Ultra Violet passed away on Saturday at the age of 78.

Farewell Ultra Violet. Your career was so long and amazing. You were always so beautiful. Yet for all the achievements of the past, you kept your focus on the future. I hope we can follow your lead and make art that moves us into a brighter, more “Ultra Violet” future.

Oh no! You lived almost 3 times as long as me, but it’s still so short! You always said such kind things about my downfall. Somehow you were a deep, rich part of that crazy 60’s scene, but unlike myself and others, you found a way to survive and be so creative for so long. We’ll miss you, but we’ll never forget you.

So over amphetamines & heroin! Now I'm all about low-carbs & high-fiber! Come visit me on Edie's Farm! We run 6 miles every morning before breakfast. The Factory was so last century. It's The Farm now. I'm, like, Ms. Sustainability!
