Thomas Thorspecken finds beauty in the mundane - Visual & Fine Arts - Orlando Weekly

Thu, 05/01/2014 - 16:23 -- rprice

“I bought my desk, bought the same computer I was working on at Disney, and spent several years at home teaching myself computer animation,” Thor says. “After several years alone I just couldn’t take it, staring at that computer screen, so I got out and started sketching.” That led to his next major creative phase, which launched in 2009 with his project to publish a sketch of Orlando on his AnalogArtistDigitalWorld.com blog every day for the whole year.

TheDailyCity.com: Public Library Nailed to a Tree - Share Your Books

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 18:13 -- rprice

Leah Fairchild did an installation in front of Urban ReThink in Thornton Park called "public library." Its a box with books inside. Very simple. But you can take the books. You can leave your old books behind. You can write a book and leave it. How fun is this?

Welcome to Your New Government – Next American City

Fri, 08/03/2012 - 15:24 -- rprice

Built out of the organizing structure of churches, unions and block associations, CDCs were envisioned as a way for citizens to have direct control over their neighborhoods while leveraging the tools of government and business. Since 1967, the first CDC, now called the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, has constructed or renovated 2,200 housing units and helped bring more than $475 million in investments to central Brooklyn. Meanwhile, the East Los Angeles Community Union formed in 1968 and was also funded through the Kennedy-Javits legislation.
