Ode To Highway 61

JessicaLange-HowardGreenbergGalleryAcclaimed actress Jessica Lange is also a visual artist, behind the camera. Her recent book Highway 61, filled with soul and melancholy, documents the fabled highway from Minnesota to Louisiana. Lange noted that “long stretches of 61 are empty, forlorn as if in mourning for what has gone missing — the hometowns, the neighborhoods, family farms, factories and mills.” Photographs from the project can be seen at Howard Greenberg Gallery, through January 18, 2020.

The Beyond

OKeeffe-NBOkeeffe-NB2Art aficionados in the NY/Boston area might enjoy an excursion to the New Britain (CT) Museum of American Art, to see The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art, which closes on June 2.

If post-modern art is about self-expression through performance art (selfies on instagram), then O’Keeffe can be seen as one of its progenitors.

Remembering

MemorialDay19On this Memorial Day, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and also those architects of American foreign policy (from TR to Bolton) over the years who acted badly — using the US military in wrongheaded ways, and destroying countless lives — while bankrupting the nation and making the world more peace-less.

Enter Misfit Hive, a comedy troupe in Woodside that features (self-professed) mentally-ill comedians, performing and raising money for their like-minded neighbors.

Genocide In Rwanda

“Why had the devil been allowed to walk among us unchallenged, poisoning hearts and minds until it was too late?” Immaculee Ilibagiza, “Left To Tell” (Hay House, 2006)

On this the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda, one can see similarities to the way people were educated (deformed) in Rwanda, in the years leading up to the genocide, and the way many Americans are being deformed and filled with resentment today.

AOC In the Zone

AOC-Woodside2Congresswoman Alezandria Ocasio-Cortez was joined by NY State Senator Michael Gianaris at the Woodside Library today, for a constituent meet-and-greet.

NYC-RuinsLE asked both about the large numbers of New Yorkers leaving the city and state, and what they proposed to do about it? He said “infrastructure” projects. She said more taxes for the wealthiest and less for everyone else.

With unbridled capitalism (especially REITS), and progressive politics, undermining persons and society, it’s hard to find elected officials capable of building a better community for all. One of the recent ‘accomplishments’ of the New York City Council was the legalization of public urination, in Manhattan, in the name of equality. It had already been legalized in the outer boroughs.
