Description Untitled (Robert M. Halperin's 50th Birthday Celebration), June 1978. This color photograph shows an image from Robert M. Halperin's 50th birthday celebration at Burgess Park in Menlo Park, California. Robert Halperin stands in a grassy field, just left of center, next to a yellow race car painted with orange and red flames. He appears in profile holding a glass and wearing a white button-down shirt, a red and black striped tie, and brown pants. Multicolor balloons are tied to the car's side mirrors, and one striped balloon is visible on the ground at bottom right. Several stickers are attached to the rear side windows, including "KENDALL MOTOR OIL," "MANLEY," etc. A young boy looks on in the background at center left, and a building next to a cluster of tall trees fills the background of the image.
