Artist Bailout at the Last Bookstore

The Artist Bailout at the Last Bookstore on May 26th was a success! All the participating artists gave incredible presentations and were all deserving of mini grants. We raised enough to give away two grants for $308.50 each. A tremendous thank you to everyone who helped make it happen from making soup to cleaning to planning.See photos from the event here.

The two artists who received the most votes were Idea Truck and Homo Economicus. Check out this video of Homo Economicus taking the cardboard check to Bank of America.

  1. How are we looking at the paintings of Mark Rothko these days?
    Is he old hat, replaced in America by more contemporary concerns? Looking at his minimal canvases and their enticing floating squares of subdued paint live at the MOMA recently, I had to stop to wonder whether he still communicates to a modern and younger audience.
    Wahooart.com, the site that sells good canvas prints to order from their database of digital images, has many Rothko prints. I ordered this one, Blue and grey, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWU7F
    , that I have now hanging in my study. I can spend a long time looking at this elusive image that takes me to some other place not in this world.
