Opening: “Martin Ramirez: Forever” at Ricco/Maresca An outsider artist who died unknown in a psychiatric ward in 1963, Martín Ramírez has been embraced as an original and generous Mexican American artist. Yet, it still came as something of a surprise when the US Postal Service—not exactly known as a champion of subversive art—announced it would unveil five stamps featuring Ramírez paintings. Ricco/Maresca will show a selection of his works in conjunction with the USPS, and a representative of the nearly obsolete government service made sure to inform the media that, yes, Jerry Saltz will be there. Ricco/Maresca, 529 West 20th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, 6-8 p.m.
