Finally - after two years of building a web site to showcase the art of
other artists in our Screen Print Workshop for Artists - I am showing off my
own work. Enjoy.


YES! Wondering when or whether you would ever hear about ART-ACT again?
We are back and continuing to build steadily. This is the time that the
boys in the retail Internet business are catching hell. The time of the easy
venture capital is over. While others stress cutting-edge technology our web
site is building flavor. Our site is seeking to do the slow hard work of
building a community around the content of ART-ACT and our Screen Print
Workshop for Artists. Our site does not depend on a well paid systems
administrator and a team of HTML coders or site designers. Our site is
powered by a lonely artist from a struggling community art center who has
never been paid well (more often - not at all) and still stays up late at
night working because that, too often, is what it takes to survive in the
community arts.

We are here to stay! Artists - your art will have an effect on our site. I
have made fliers from the art from ART-ACT promoting our site and
your art locally, asking people to visit the site and to submit their own
personal stories for racism. The history of our "Art of the T-shirt"
exhibits demonstrate our commitment to community
art and the artist.

A second iron in the fire is to seek out the support of
teachers to help build a curriculum for high school and college classes
to use this art to inspire the discussion of racism and issues of diversity.
If you are a teacher and would like to work on this project or know another
teacher who would - do not hesitate. E-mail me. Lets get it on! More on
this as the year progresses. We know your art is valuable.

So what is our big plan for 2001? Steadily to build our networking by
volunteers to promote our web site. This is one idea we are putting into

Want to help - just e-mail me with volunteer in the subject line or visit
this link....

Over the course of the next month or two I will be adding my work to a
segment of this site. I invite those who are curious to take a look. Because
I wear many hats steady, not speedy, growth is promised.
