Shawn Quinlan Video- Liberace Lounge Pittsburgh


This video is an excerpt from a piece I made in 1991 called Xenophobia. Sometime in the early 70’s Liberace was touring and when he got to Pittsburgh he became very ill and almost died…he was taken to St. Francis Hospital where the doctors amazingly figured out that he was ill because of his dry cleaning. He would sweat on stage which would make the toxic chemicals reactivate and go into his skin…or something like that. Anyway, He was so grateful that he gave the hospital a lot of money to build a connecting walkway and lounge area and he would come back every year and take all the Nuns to Dinner. How do I know all this? Sweat Nancy told me and about her brush with Liberace. This was shot late 80’s, early 90’s.
