At its best, art makes us take a step back from our lives and examine ourselves, giving us the space to confront ourselves and grow in meaningful ways.  “Madagascar,” in an hour and a half, does just that, in a way that snuck up on me, but left me more than satisfied, if not a ... Continue Reading

This just makes me happy.  Its man vs nature.  Its just silliness.  Something we need more of.  Its simply a few dozen lit chandaliers and a grand old tree.  Please excuse the photo, I grabbed it with my phone after dark, certainly just at dusk might have been a bit better, but beggars can’t be ...

Here for our enjoyment is a lush sonic treat in every respect, and a visual feast as well, with a fine orchestra, a lively chorus, and a uniformly excellent cast of singers in the leading roles, plus a production that fills the stage: Austin Lyric Opera has outdone itself with the current production of Verdi’s ...

With the relatively unheralded news last month that the Autry National Center of the American West was opening up the Southwest Museum to the public for the first time in years to showcase an exhibition of Native American pottery, it was only a matter of time before my wife Susan and I paid a long-overdue ...

This post is just about the students, 9 of them at least from the Monrovia Unified School District.  They were at the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts 50th Annual Celebrate the Arts show. All were demonstrating their talents in the flat media with a variety of media.  Urban art to plein air to abstract it ... Continue Reading

Bill Hyatt is a metal sculptor of some renown in the area. His metal sculptures are beautifully executed ranging from the surreal to literal representation of their subject matter.  They are surreal and real at the same time.  Often whimsical, often make an interesting punctuation mark in the area they are displayed. From small crucifix ... Continue Reading

I’ve seen them popping up in City Paper, and I’d be they’re elsewhere as well, and CopyRanter over at Buzz Feed has picked up the awesome campaign for the Warhol. This one is my favorite, even with the cringe it induces, and BuzzFeed is missing at least one (the firecracker underwear), unless there are more ... Continue Reading

The weather was perfect and the people were out to dance. Fiestas Patrias of Austin provided a full schedule of music and other activities on both days.

In one ring was an entire entertainment, as close as could be. The tent seating five hundred, in folding chairs and on bleachers, was set up on the grass just west of the Long Performing Arts Center, with handsome views in all directions, including downtown. A little pre-show entertainment offered a foretaste of the delights ... Continue Reading

Thank you, Honk!TX for parading again this year. Portable music that lifts the spirits and does not require protection for the ears is in scant supply and for that reason very, very welcome. Even the many dogs along the parade route looked happy. Children appeared to be happier still. Every group in the parade was ... Continue Reading

Shortly after we moved to Capitol View, French muralist and street artist Roti was brought to Atlanta by the Living Walls organization, to paint a legally-approved* mural on a wall on University Avenue next to the 75 freeway.

I was out with Venture Outdoors this weekend on an art and wine walk, and we stopped at Fraley’s Robot Repair, one of Pop-Up Pittsburgh’s projects.

One of the great activities at last month’s Luna Park Chalk Art Festival was a bike tour of 24 of the “art boxes” recently created around San Jose. The art boxes are city-owned utility boxes that have been painted by local artists, each in the artist’s individual style. Decorating the boxes has turned these eyesores ... Continue Reading

A new project on Kickstarter has popped up, a documentary about the fight to save the Braddock Hospital.
