Snow, Moving Poems, MFA, Autism…


My latest Moving Poems review. Reminds me of when I was out west.

Should an artist go for an MFA? Well in my case it secured my promotion and I can apply to teach in other schools. Also racked up some debt. Has it gotten me into the Whitney Biennial…..? No. They won’t even return my calls. And as far as getting into galleries, most people don’t care. So my opinion stands as if you want an MFA, do it with teaching in mind. Also keep in mind that there is a new animal out there, “the independent curator.” Seems as if they are gaining in popularity in the art world. This may or may not be a good thing. I think it widens the gap between the artist, gallery and the chance to be shown.

Been reading and seeing a lot on TV concerning autism. Seems as if it is taking it’s place as a new form of “normal.” I have to say this is very interesting to me.  Apparently autism is very widespread and the AMA has to address this on some level. The campaign is to view autism as another way to function in the world. It seems as if in the coming years there will be a complete divide.


The Z Factor addresses extreme physical change. Perhaps we are shifting mentally as well.

Stay tuned…
