Tom Konyves at the lobby of Place des Arts. On April 8, 2004, The Vehicule Poets were reunited to celebrate 25 years from the launch of the 1979 anthology, The Vehicule Poets to The Vehicule Poets_Now, marked by the event Cabaret Vehicule, held at Place des Arts, sponsored by the Musee d'Art Contemporain. Hundreds of fans attended, many were turned away. The evening's highlight was the performance of the poets' works, adapted for the stage by Steps Dans Fuego Theatre Collective.

Ken stoops to sign a book and conquer a fan after the Cabaret.

Claudia entertains her fans.

On the Sunday following the Cabaret Vehicule event, we met for brunch at Le Brise on Sherbrooke Street, across the street from Artie's apartment. Endre went to escort Artie to the 'meeting'.

It was the last time most of us were to see Artie alive and about.

A happy moment at Le Brise on Sherbrooke St. the morning after the Cabaret.

Claudia with Ruth Taylor at Le Brise. Artie did not attend the Cabaret; his poems were read by R.T. A few months later, Ruth passed away.
