You failed to mention the wonderful exhibit at the Oakland Main Library's Oakland History Room, "Revolution is a Daily Struggle: remembering the Black Panther Party's Social Programs." http://oaklandlibrary.org/exhibits/revolution-daily-struggle-remembering-black-panther-partys-social-programs
The Panthers were fulfilling lots of basic social needs that the local and state governments were not addressing. That's an important part of their legacy. Check out this exhibit!
Is this going to be an annual event?
So excited about this show. A long time coming. We Black Women are finding our voices. Forming Sistar Circles all over the country. Once we remember how to unite our resources for our greater good, the sky is the limit. Empowering. Enlightening. Engaging.
It is unfortunately a popular myth perpetuated by the EcoActivist left that the honey bee is dying or in danger. Since 2006, when the number of commercial colonies was at 2.1 million, and when the meaningless term CCD - Colony Collapse Disorder was coined, there has been a 50% increase in the number of colonies to approx 3 million. The four important metrics in the industry are all up - number of colonies - pounds per colony - total pounds and price per pound - all up significantly. The losses that are being reported are mostly from Newbees, newbeekeepers - who by the way - fewer than 10% stay active in beekeeping for more than three years.

Is this the same Julia Shirar who was a member of the band 'Pillows'?
I think "pus" has one s, "puss" is something else altogether. That doesn't look like puss.
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
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?

Hi, Do you do write-ups about the events at the Osceola Gallery in Emeryville and the Mythos Gallery in Berkeley?
Recently, the Mythos Gallery has produced art shows of significant quality, from historical themes to the upcoming contemporary abstract work. Osceola Gallery has recently held an open house and I saw works there from mid-20th century that are that are a collector's dream. Both worthwhile art news, Janet Norris
Some particularly nice bits from the review:
"Anything avowed to a prescribed notion of worth and beauty was immediately asked to leave."
"The artist doesn't openly theorize about the perceived limitations of literature, but matter-of-factly presents viewers with works that defy their existence."
"A video montage called "How to Write Good Poetry" cements that point pretty well."
Uh huh. As The New Yorker's founder and editor Harold Ross was wont to note on a submission "what mean?"
Am I entirely wrong in thinking that there will soon be a Man Booker Prize for the year's best text?
All of the works featured in "First Thought, Worst Thought" are available as free downloads and/or print-on-demand editions via Gauss PDF (originally published 4/27/15): http://www.gauss-pdf.com/post/117480745350/gpdf170gpdfe014-tom-comitta-first-thought
It's an uplifting work that you can see from all over town. Zio Ziegler, thank you!
If GATS wanted to comment on this article, he couldn't because it's against the East Bay Express' policy.
Mad love GATS -

No question, what happened to the folks at the bulb should be memorialized. Shame on the perpetrators who attacked the homeless for committing the crime of living on a dump.
