New Blog Posts - Bombs Not Bread - A classic antiwar print created by Vallen in 1983. Art and the Global Economic Meltdown - "how will artists be able to sell their works - an already difficult process - under the extremely tough conditions imposed by an economic catastrophe?" The Enduring Works of Goya - "It was Goya's remarkable works that helped convinced me to trod the path of social commentary in art - and I haven't looked back since." Obama's Arts & Culture Policy - "While the platform planks appear to be important first steps in resuscitating the Arts in America, they should not simply be accepted without critical analysis." The City of Light Despoiled - "The marvelous renaissance buildings of Venice being draped with inane commercial advertisements is an outrage and a cause for real alarm."
