As Miami gets re-constructed in anticipation for this years tourist season and much ballyhooed ArtBaselMiamiBeach, there are several questions local artists want answered.
Who will give them a show?
What do they have to do to get a show?
When will they get a show?
Where can they show?

Romance with Erosion
But if there's an erosion at home, you know, Thomas Jefferson warned about a tyranny of an oligarchy and if we surrender our democracy to the tyranny of an oligarchy, we've made a terrible mistake.
I wish the press were paying more attention to the erosion of the Constitution and the slippery slope that we're getting into, by giving up the right of the Congress to talk about when and how and where we go to war.
If you look over the course of a hundred years, I think the gradual erosion of the consensus that's held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings.

An open letter from actor Jon Voight to President Obama:
June 22, 2010
President Obama: You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world. You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated. You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics. With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel,

After his death last year, self-taught artist Purvis Young left behind a treasure trove of outsider art. He also left his studio unchanged for the fortunate self-taught artist Juan Rozas to have access to. Both have painted on discarded objects as their canvases, including doors, cardboard, and pieces of wood. Rozas draws his inspiration from the passionate Purvis, his work and his spirit, forever young.
