Hello Everyone, listed below is an art opening-TODAY-at Boricua College...not much notice, however I have, after many decades found that last minute often works as well as the appropriate "due notice". I have one piece in this exhibit (see image below). I submitted two, and interestingly enough, although both were accepted, one was "censored" by the college. I am posting the one accepted. Censorship is a form of secrecy by the powers that be.

Il 22 marzo 2013, presso l'Ambasciata argentina a Roma, si è svolta la cerimonia di acquisizione, da parte dello Stato argentino, dell'opera di Andrea Benetti, intitolata “Matite spezzate”. Il chiaro riferimento del titolo lascia intendere che l'opera tratta il tema del regime militare che si instaurò in Argentina dal 1976 al 1983, guidato dal gen. Videla. Duranti gli anni della dittatura vi furono circa 30.000 Desaparecidos, persone che sparivano nel nulla, ma che in realtà…Continue

All the violent people
With toys of fire,
Permitted to destroy,
On a street corner,
In front of a home,
In a movie theater,
In a school.
One child kills another; its in the news.…Continue

Como veis el " taller " continua un año mas, no en el sitio de la playa, ahora estamos en la cresta de la montaña, ya que al nuevo alcalde le molesta la Cultura y todo aquello que sea " gratuito ", en los momentos que vivimos de crisis económica el estado debería patrocinar y no " censurar ", pero hay dineros para un combate de boxeo, parecería ser que ( alcalde ) se estuviera preparando para recibir una gran paliza y ver como corre la sangre de los actores del ring, es de esperar, ni…Continue

“Bluey,” Inwood Icon, Laid to Rest at Age 31
“Bluey,” a 1982 Honda Civic, will be laid to rest on July 31, 2012, following a ceremony in upper Manhattan, NY. Bluey—so named by the young son of Mr. Ettling’s downstairs neighbors—was lovingly owned and driven for 30 years by Harry Ettling, a jazz musician and long-time Inwood resident.
‘Born’ in the fall of 1981, Bluey was purchased new by Mr. Ettling’s girlfriend at the time, Ms. Lucy Smith, originally of…Continue

There will be a Closing Party, Tuesday, July 31, 7-9 PM featuring The…Continue
