Walter Robinson’s populist ambition is revealed by the large run of 900 prints that he made of this cute kitty painted in a technique reminiscent of paint-by-numbers sets.  In the early 1980s COLAB organized a number of pop-up gift shops (often using the name “The A. More Store”) featuring  artist-made, low-priced multiples designed to have broad popular appeal.  Kitty was one of the items featured in an article about The A. More Store phenomenon in ArtForum, December 1984.

COLAB’s ever-changing nexus of thirty to sixty artists included many who later achieved individual fame, but the group’s real contribution was the philosophy of creative engagement it advanced through collective, do-it-yourself actions.
