Patrick Mancini Paints With an Incredible Cause

Samantha Matcovsky | September 1, 2015 | Arts
By day, Patrick Mancini is a successful software executive at IBM. While his ability to lead people in a business context is impressive, by night, he doubles as an impassioned painter whose creations serve as the engine for a life committed to honest to goodness charity.

Don't Post My Picture

Heather Kasdan | September 1, 2015 | Arts
About this poem: I wrote this after the Virginia Tech shootings. And to my incredible sadness, it is not only still applicable today, but may be even more so with murderers using social media and news outlets to distribute their self-portraits, manifestos and, most recently, videos of their murders.

At age eight, during the summer of '69, one of the most comforting sounds I knew was the sound of Mother's manual Royal typewriter.

Tom Teicholz | September 1, 2015 | Arts
Happy birthday to the Israel Museum! The country's national museum turns 50 this year -- middle age for most of us, but quite young in museum years.

How Would We Have Been? IV

Romina Ressia | August 31, 2015 | Arts
The project, making use of the anachronism as a visual resource, does not pretend to refer to the past but to create a reference on which to analyze the evolution of society as well as its actions and reactions front to current issues.

Make Way for Tomorrow (1937) Retrospective

Michael D. Shaw | August 31, 2015 | Arts
This vastly overrated clunker fooled everyone except its original theatrical audience. The pic bombed on release, but wowed the critics at the time, right on down to the present day.

L.A. Dolce Vita: Artist Mike Street's Ode to Bygone Lobby Cards, Fellini and L.A.'s Art Scene

Mat Gleason | August 31, 2015 | Los Angeles
Any lifelong fan of cinema can appreciate that the way Fellini's La Dolce Vita weaves 120 co-stars with the protagonist was a predecessor to the actual surreal interaction with our daily hundred Facebook friends.

On Vacation? Rise and Shine -- Explore the Arts All Around You!

Robert L. Lynch | August 31, 2015 | Arts
Can you think of a trip you took where you didn't see an interesting piece of art or fascinating architecture, or learned something new about the local culture? I bet you can't. The arts become a part of the travel experience even when that isn't the intent of a trip.

Trump's Good Bad Speaking Style

Stanley Fish | August 31, 2015 | Arts
Trump is often called "crazy," but there is method to his madness, and that method is matched and displayed by the speaking style he employs on the stump. Even his detractors see that a large part of his appeal is that he comes across as unscripted.

The Journey Within: Gongs, Tunnels and Binaural Beats

Roxie Sarhangi | August 31, 2015 | Arts
But crawling through the tunnel at "The Little House" was nothing to be alarmed about. It was such an extremely short, easy distance. And I had no choice: The front door to the house does not open so I had to be okay with being a little uncomfortable. It was perfectly unconventional. Somehow it all made sense.

Jornalismo de rede e rua | August 31, 2015 | Women
Scars may never disappear. Women who have suffered domestic violence can be haunted for life by the marks of abuse they carry on their bodies. A "lifetime mark," however, can mean something different; Flavia Carvalho, a tattoo artist born in Curitiba, reinvents the term.

Not-Cumberbatch: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers Outdoors in London

Barry Singer | August 31, 2015 | Arts
Would I ever have ventured to see Seven Brides for Seven Brothers remade on a New York stage? Doubtful. All that death-defying Michael Kidd choreography cannot be replicated away from the camera, I would have thought. But outdoors in London in August? Why not?

Purgatory & Paradise: Meryl Meisler's Vintage New York Photography

Michael Ernest Sweet | August 31, 2015 | Arts
Meryl Meisler's tome of photography from the 70s titled, "Purgatory & Paradise SASSY '70s: Suburbia & The City" is an exceptional collection of disco era images. I simply delighted in reading these images from cover to cover, and then doing it...
