From Editor, Joey Skaggs:

Joey Skaggs, WALK RIGHT!

Last night I received a call from Nadine Baker, Ilene Baker's younger sister, who told me Ilene is sadly with us no more. Ilene and I were classmates and became very close friends at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in the early 60's. We went our separate ways but always remained close. Ilene was a unique individual and a gifted artist. She was always a willing volunteer and co-conspirator for many of my performances from the Cathouse for Dogs to Walk Right! to the Bad Guys Talent Management Agency. Her talent and spirit will be dearly missed.
