Small town, big news

The South Miami City Commission voted Tuesday evening to require all new houses (and existing houses undergoing significant renovations) to install photovoltaic panels. The measure puts our small city in rare company; only three cities in California have similar measures. While the new law will only affect a few houses every year, it will probably have far-reaching consequences across the Sunshine State.

Day job - Italian Futurist edition

I am delighted and honored to find a short essay of mine in the magisterial catalog that accompanies the exhibition, Enrico Prampolini. Futurism, Stage Design and the Polish Avant-garde Theatre. at the Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź. The exhibition is curated by Przemek Strożek, a brilliant scholar of avant-garde culture at the Institute of Art Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. The show highlights the numerous points of contact and overlap between Italian Futurism and the Polish avant gardes.
