Re: “Inkworks Press, 1974–2016

Inkworks was a tremendous asset for many organizations and movements in the Bay Area. I would add one clarification to the article. Glad Day Press in Ithaca moved to Oakland and joined with LSM Press to form Sequoyah Graphics. Though it had a different organizational basis, Sequoyah did a lot of similar printing for many organizations and movements. Sequoyah is also history now.

Re: “Step Right Up to Autobody Fine Art

Auto shops are starting to do a lot of really cool things nowadays. I'm not surprised that they are making these cars, that are already fine art, into an even more collectible piece.These shops can really turn a beat up car into a masterpiece, I wonder if all shops would be willing to do such a thing. http://www.autobodyhuntingtonbeachca.com

Re: “Photographing Forgotten Cities

Great story about an accomplished, as well as committed, artist.

If only an elected person who spends so much time in city hall would see the show at Betty Ono and think about it. Or engage some feeling. Possibly.

We need an open-minded pol or two in city hall who just might be capable of understanding that so many of Oakland's folks are invisible to them.

It's a short walk from city hall to Betty Ono's gallery. Unfortunately our pols never seem to put their feet on the ground.

Re: “BAMPFA Is Back

Above opening date for Ciampi building is incorrect. It opened in 1970. I was on staff as a guard on opening day.

Re: “Oakland Archivist Revives 1917 Feminist Film

Hey, everyone should nominate this film to the National Film Registry! That way, we can guarantee that the government will see to it that it doesn't get lost again.

Re: “Oakland Archivist Revives 1917 Feminist Film

This Marxist-fascist film reference is good and points to the social confusion within East Coast Cities, Ivy Schools and Euro cities. And across all media genre. For instance, the 1925 best seller was An American Tragedy promoting baby killings while simultaneously setting up the Christian Church as scapegoat. 1913 gave us the international Federal Reserve and a little later the income tax slave system. Wilson further added the problem of WWI which caused Lenin and Trotsky to enter Russia with American gold to create the first Marxist-fascist state that cause world conflict and divisions and deaths for decades. All these social principles are in Communist Manifesto at the end of Chapter 1. The time precursor was around Andrew Jackson's time period.

This film is an excellent find. Thank you!

Re: “Oakland Archivist Revives 1917 Feminist Film

Terrific news, though I think the author meant to write "need to scan each individual FRAME digitally". Can't wait to see this film!

Re: “West Oakland's New All-Female Art Collective

This is all very great for young, female graduates and I'm happy for them. However, let me speak up for the older, mature female artists who did not have the benefit of today's insights and novel attitudes towards female art/artists. What about those of us who somehow navigated a tougher system several years ago but yet manage to hang on to our art practice? What about those of us who somehow manage to balance motherhood and their art? Who somehow manage to work for one's basic survival needs (and their family's) and still do their art? Who have had to keep a day job and still do their art? Whose art have never been significantly recognized or validated by the Art World and yet still keep going? Is today's inclusivity focused only on the young and upcoming? Is the concept of doing art minus the driving ambition of attaining rock star status such a dismal place to be?
