The Burroughs’ “Shotgun Art” piece

Leary was visiting the artist in 1987 when he was introduced to the art Burroughs was creating in his studio.

Shortly thereafter Leary received this piece from Burroughs as a token of their friendship. They remained friends until Leary's death in 1996.

The piece was on display in Tim's living room (pictured right) until it traveled with an exhibit by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
