Theater: Bradley Cooper Gets Ugly; TR Knight Gets Closeted

Michael Giltz | December 17, 2014 | Arts
Bradley Cooper is quite good at capturing the wry, intelligent voice of Merrick. He distorts his face and limps and crawls about and we're soon in the mind of this interesting fellow.

Perry Brass: The Manly Pursuit of Desire: Eric Rhein: AIDS and The Hummingbird's Warrior

Perry Brass | December 17, 2014 | Arts
One of the most beautiful art experiences I know of in the New York area is completely free, in a gorgeous, amazingly comfortable setting, and will be on display until January 31, 2015. It is of the captivating, sometimes lighter than air, other times heavy as mortality, art of Eric Rhein.

Photographers, Don't Think You Need to Register Your Copyrights? Think Again

Heather Hummel | December 17, 2014 | Arts
So many people get caught up in the fact that "you don't have to register the copyrights to your work because it's copyrighted the moment you create it."

JT Burke's Paradise Circus Pops Up at the LA Art Show

Shana Nys Dambrot | December 17, 2014 | Arts
For Burke, the allegory of Paradise Circus is not really about satirizing any individual faith per se, his own or anyone's -- it's more about shining a light on the absurdity of killing one another over competing theories of the unknowable.
