Christopher, I hope you can help me. I have a picture I clipped from the LA Times several years ago, maybe sometime between 2000 & 2002 (yes, I know that's a rather extensive range). Foolishly I clipped the picture and left the article behind and now I'd really like to know the artist's name. I think he's Japanese (or maybe Japanese-American) but that's all I seem to have on him...or her. You can view the picture (which is apparently very representative of the artist's style) on my Blog here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Cy2G9A6qQrk/StvV8XgR3lI/AAAAAAAAASM/wo_35tY9X9g/s1600-h/SPAngel.jpg

Hopefully you can help me identify the artist, or direct me to someone who can help. Thank you.

Did the AAMD say its member institutions earn on average 5% of their REVENUE through admissions, or 5% of their expenses? Hard to imagine what the other 95% of revenue would consist of.

Hello there.

I realize you are a busy man, but I thought you might like to check out my online gallery of tunnel books. Some of them, and a few new pieces, will be exhibited at The Land of Odd Gallery in Eagle rock on Saturday, May 8th.

Thanks for your time,
Brad Davis

Raising awareness of the Watts/Rodia Towers as the greatest collection of art, fountains, sculptures and religious edifice in the Western US tonight and through June at Norm Maxwell's Studio/Gallery across from Canter's on Fairfax. 430 N Fairfax.
Seeya there.

Thank you for posting the Nuestro Pueblo story, Christopher. Please stay on it, nothing in the art community in LA is more important, not Broad, not Disney, not the ring cycle, nothing.
