William S. Bartman, founder of ART Resources Transfer, nonprofit organization that publishes books featuring conversations between artists and makes them and other ART books available free to libraries in Underserved Communities, has die. He was 58. Bartman, former Los Angeles stage and film director, died Sept. 15 of multiple organ failure at Hospital in Manhattan, said Yael Meridan Schori, president of ART Resources Transfer board of directors. Bartman, who requires dialysis, had long-term health problems, including HIV infection, she say. Bartman, ART collector, found ART Resources Transfer in Los Angeles in 1987. He later moved it to New York City, where he opened a nonprofit bookstore-gallery in Chelsea in 1996. That facility operated until 2004. Over the years, nonprofit group published 17 contemporary artist-interview books, which are sold in bookstores, museums and galleries around the country. Through its Distribution to Underserved Communities Program, group provides ART books-as well as videos and interactive materials on ART and culture-free to libraries and schools around the country. Since its founding, Distribution Program has donated more than 140 000 ART books, videos and other materials to more than 2 400 libraries nationwide. There was nobody who was more of a cheerleader for artists and for ART than Bill was, Schori told the Times on Thursday. He would go through hoops to promote ART and artists. He thinks world of them, and thinks that ART changes the world and basically touches us in ways that nothing else can do. Schori said the story she heard at ART Resources Transfer benefit in May made her understand even more what Bill meant. An elementary schoolteacher from a poor area of upstate New York, who had obtained ART books through Distribution Program, told the gathering that she had established an ART corner in her classroom. That, in turn, lead to having her students create their own artwork. The teacher said one student painting, by a 9-year-old boy, was very dark and moving. I asked him, What is that? He say, Well, my brother die. He would never say that in class. Schori praised Bartman for making ART available and having this outlet for people to express their feelings. Chicago-born Bartman grew up in Los Angeles and earned a bachelor's degree from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., In 1968. At West Coast Theater Co. In Los Angeles in the 1970s and early 80s, he produced and directed numerous productions. He also founded the artist-in-schools Program and the Theater Program at federal prison in Lompoc, Calif., Which included staging of all-inmate production of One Flew Over Cuckoos Nest. Before launching ART group, Bartman also worked as associate producer and second-unit director on a number of films, and he directed and Co-write 1982 movie OHaras Wife, comedy-drama starring Ed Asner, Mariette Hartley and Jodie Foster. He is survived by his mother, Norma Bartman; his brother, Thomas; and his sister, Barbara, all of Los Angeles.
