  Steve Lambert, Lawrence Ferlinghetti Receive Grants from Creative Work Fund

Press Release 2004 lists among the grantees Steve Lambert, a studioNOTES subscriber, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who has contributed a statement to studioNOTES and who was the subject of an interview a few years ago. The paragraphs below are from the Creative Work Fund press release about the awards


Artist Steve Lambert and the San Francisco Print Collective are collaborating to create the "Anti-Advertising Agency," an interdisciplinary, collaborative public art project that examines the role of advertising and public art in the Bay Area. Through constructive parody and gentle humor, the artists ask passersby to critically consider the role and strategies of today’s marketing media and point at alternatives for the public arena. Among other topics, the project will examine ways political candidates are groomed, packaged, and sold to the public.


San Francisco’s first poet laureate, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, will collaborate with Bay Area Radio Drama and Earwax Productions to produce a series of three original hour-long audio compositions. In these programs, Ferlinghetti will juxtapose autobiography, commentary, and poetry in a highly personal acoustic exploration of what he terms “the current state of American consciousness.” The pieces will be broadcast on public radio nationally and internationally, and available through the Internet.

  Graduation, Baghdad Style

Graduation, Baghdad Style is a poignant look at a graduation from The School of Arts for Girls in war torn Baghdad. The institution is a specialized secondary school for talented individuals. All of the art disciplines are taught, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, music, and graphic design. Some of its graduates will go to College of Fine Arts at Baghdad University, while others will go on to teaching careers.

The article appears in the AFSC newsletter. American Friends Service Committee is an extraodinary human organization that provides relief and hope to people and populations devastated by the effects of war, poverty and other unnatural disasters.  
Art information from the publishers of studioNOTES, the journal for working artists of all styles, media and geographic locations. Includes practical stuff like art opportunities, marketing and promotion for artists, as well as "deeper" stuff like the role of art, the worth of art history, and the use or non-use of mind-altering techniques and substances. Some humor, quotes, oddities and other material for your mental collage.
