Unlike art in museums, Guillemin’s favorite works did not last for centuries.
‘One time at the Beaver Creek (Colorado) Ski Resort,’ he said, ‘I did a painting with snow cone colors in the snow and when I was done, everyone rushed in and they ate it. I love to do art that’s different, that’s vivacious.”
He spoke endlessly about his desire to work with and talk to college students about art and social change.
‘I want to encourage people who concentrate in the arts and humanities to think beautifully about the potential that their expertise could contribute to America’s well being in this century,’ he said. ‘That people of spirit, people who understand the moral responsibility of society, can direct society into a new path.’
Guillemin has also done sidewalk advertisements for Boston’s non-profits, said Paul Marsh, marketing director for the New England Aquarium.
‘He’s fantastic to work with, a real artist,’ Marsh said. ‘What he offers is really quite special.’

Guillemin has been working with the aquarium during summers since 2006, painting 10 to 20 ads at prominent locations around the city, like outside T stops, Marsh said.
‘He’s extremely enthusiastic about non-profits, and about helping non-profits,’ he said.
Guillemin has worked with city officials to create a map of places deemed appropriate for sidewalk art, which makes obtaining the necessary permits much easier, Marsh said.
‘He’s just a great guy,’ Marsh said. ‘His outlook on life is amazing.’
