Ant Farm co-founder Doug Michels died in Australia last week at the age of 59, reports the Houston Chronicle. Michels, who was alone, was climbing to a whale observation point at Eden Bay near Sydney, Australia at the time of his death. An Ant Farm retrospective scheduled for 2004 at the Berkeley Art Museum will acquaint a new generation with Cadillac Ranch, Media Burn, and other exploits of the collective Michels founded with three other artists in 1968.
