Art News

Outside the Gallery

Contemporary Arts in the Public Realm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center and 516 Magnífico Artspace

A couple months ago, a few Albuquerque city councilors and their supporters made a big stink about a sculpture consisting of two giant neon green cones that the city planned to install at the Louisiana and I-40 interchange. Whether you side with the complainers or with Tom Waldron, the project's designer, it's nice to see people get worked up over art for a change. It's the kind of conflict we don't see often enough in Albuquerque. Everyone should care about public art in our city, and we should all be willing to air our own views in public.

Book Review

Not Invited

In Company: An Anthology of New Mexico Poets After 1960

In looking over In Company: An Anthology of New Mexico Poets After 1960 what strikes me most is not the poems, or even the all-star line up, but the poets who are missing. Since I am an award-winning poet, host of a monthly reading for five years, award-winning producer of a spoken word/poetry radio show for four years and resident of Albuquerque for 13 years, some of my dismay is personal. Ever since I heard about the book's release, my indignation has been building. But now, with the actual book, I'm incredulous, and my ire is aimed squarely at the editors: Lee Bartlett, V.B. Price and Dianne Edenfield Edwards. I smell a rat.

It takes courage to expend the energy to create, come what may of one's efforts. The same is true of creative activism. Clamor addresses art, activism and courageous creativity in general.
