http://chirotzerozine.blogspot.com
the blog is more exusively concerned than this one with presenting essays, reviews (inc. "bad reviews") , Visual Poetry, Sound Poetry, Event Scores, Manifestos, Manifotofestos, rantin' & raving, rock'roll, music all sorts--by myself and others--if you are interested in being a contributor, please feel free to contact me at david.chirot@gmail.com
as with this blog, the arts are investigated as a part of rather than apart from the historical, economic, political actualities of yesterday, today, & tomorrow
as with al my blogs--
contributions in any language are welcome

Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'



Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'


The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.


The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Art City (Milwaukee): Frank Lloyd Wright, the Marriott proposal and unexpected angels

Art City: Mary Louise Schumacher looks at art and architecture

 

 
Hello art and architecture lovers,
Novelist T.C. Boyle memorably described Frank Lloyd Wright as having a "thunder cloud of hair." I just love that. It's a near perfect metaphor for the electrical storm of a brain that Wright was, the man who famously conceived of a cyclone for Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. 
What I loved about working on my column this week, though, was exploring the decidedly quieter side of Wright's mind and a little known landmark on Milwaukee's near south side.
Now, a few questions. Are you drawn to the aesthetics of urban bohemianism? Think tattoo-like images of anthropomorphized bunnies. Did you read Little Golden Books as a youngster? Did you ever fantasize about tooling around in an old VW bus? If so, two things are true. One, there is an art exhibit calling your name. Two, you must read Karin Wolf's review of it.
Mere hours before flitting off to the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center to screen her film and give a talk, our jet setting Art City contributor Faythe Levine filed this week's "Snaps" It showcased, among other things, a heady talk at MAM, the identity of Faythe's favorite restaurant, handmade pinatas and plush Pabst beer cans.
Another Art City contributor, Stacey Williams-Ng, was just the right person to review a show at the Haggerty this week. She brought a lot of who she is -- as a woman, a Southerner and a painter -- to a show that makes us rethink religious icons, real and imagined. I never knew Stacey hoped for a "lady angel" as a girl.
Oh yes, and there was a bit of artist anarchy at Art City this week. See how one artist agrees to be interviewed by Nathaniel Stern -- but has a bit of fun with us.
For those of you interested in the plans to demolish buildings designated as historic to make way for a proposed Marriott Hotel downtown, here is the latest from my colleague, development reporter Tom Daykin. Also, here's our poll and the details about the public hearing scheduled for Monday.
Finally, let's talk about the weekend. Tonight, Dean Jensen's "Big Bangs" show opens. And there are still more art and craft fairs popping up. Here are two slated for the weekend, one at Green Gallery West and the other at Kunzelmann-Esser. Then, why not round our your weekend with a lantern-lit walk through a sculpture garden at sunset?
Have a great week!
