Wallace Allen Healey

Young Woman

When I moved downtown and met Herbert Freeman, I immediately felt he was someone important.  After a few months I decided to start this blog in order to expose his work to others.  It has been slow going, but I feel the effort has been worth it.  If nothing else I have provided proof of Mr. Freeman’s existence and a record of his work that I have been able to gather. 

Wallace Allen Healy was a homeless artist in San Francisco.  He created some impressive work by drawing on magazine pages with felt-tip pens.  There is very little information available about him on the web that I can find.  He appears to have participated in one group show while he was still alive and his work was featured in another group show seven years after his death. 

“Wally” Healy died of exposure behind the San Francisco Art Institute in December 1992. 

Two remembrances of Mr. Healy here and here
