tough crowd

I am an artist in Lorain Ohio. Lorain is a post-industrial town. Like Detroit, all our lives were entwined in heavy industry. When heavy industry left, we went into a coma. The prosperous moved to higher ground and the city is run by sitties, that is property owners who sit on property and do nothing much. We all wait for industry to return. We lost that risk taking nerve and everybody wants credit and to get paid for whatever goes down.

Meanwhile everything of value is draining, the…

I love being a creative...

I love being a creative!

It's not the "fabulous" life that you can find on some offshoot reality show.

In fact ...it's nowhere remotely close to what you see on TV.

You more than likely won't find me participating in Art battles either.

Been a few months.

The Lorain Arts Council in Lorain Ohio is doing things. We embraced our county size name and opened a gallery/arts center in Elyria Ohio. The town loves it and participation is pretty good. Back in Lorain we just had a Black History Month Celebration, Marcus Cross sang soul and gospel, Madelyn Sanders from the Women in History Group portrayed Mary McLeod Bethune, we had local artist's work of Black themes by Black and Latino artists. We also had quilts, Aunt Jamima figures, hand made cards,…
