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.

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,…

Miami artist smashes vase at Perez museum to draw attention to the neglect of local artists

Miami artist smashes vase at Perez museum to draw attention to the neglect of local artists by Perez and other Miami museums or at least that's what he claims. However, I think destroying another artist work is wrong. There is a lot of pent up frustration between the museums and  local  Miami artist. The art world can often act like Greek god  Cronus.
