"If the Whitney Biennial comes, can the Whitney Counterweight be far behind?"
Grace Glueck, N.Y.Times, 1981

Bill Rabinovitch's "unofficial entry" into the 2017 Whitney Biennial has over 100 likes in several places, including Loren Munks page ( alias James Kalm's YouTube videos of NYC art openings ).

So this means notice of Bill's image has been seen by thousands, certainly the Whitney staff & curators. Thus he promoted this image / story, making a splash, without actually being in this Biennial.

Henry Taylor's were the only paintings Bill found gripping with holding power.
