            Inspirational Coincidences

            BY RACHEL MASON
            @ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

            Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

            The Trail to Walter

            BY MEL LANGTON
            @ VOL 3 ON OCT 07, 2015

            Lincoln Barons' Charter Trail was part of the 800th year Magna Carta Celebrations and artist Mel Langton takes us through a fun behind the scenes of her work on Sir Walter Style (aka William Malet a feudal baron from Somerset). 

            All 25 barons lined the streets of Lincoln during the summer and were later auctioned raising almost £170,000 in one night. Lincolnites will miss them but the funds raised contributed to fight hunger and poverty in the UK. Well done barons!

            The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred

            BY DANA MCKNIGHT
            @ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

            "Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."

            In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- ­­­to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."

            Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78

            BY FRANK PALEN, ESQ., AICP
            @ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

            “Think of me as a time traveler. I’m going to take you back to a place called Buffalo in the 1970s.”

            In Buffalo Entertainment District Project, 1977-78 from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, attorney and urban renewal advocate, Frank Palen, recalls the creation of a historic district for theatre and culture from a once abandoned rust belt urban core. From 1977 to 1979, Palen was Research Associate in the Center for Community Research and Development at the University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Environmental Design, serving as Coordinator of the Buffalo Entertainment District Project. The University at Buffalo’s graduate studio investigated the potential of promoting a theater district in what was then an increasingly abandoned section of Downtown, despite various setbacks and a challenging political climate. The result was a very high-profile effort that set an agenda for the redevelopment of Buffalo that continues today.
