Sometimes it feels like the string is running out. Like things are getting serious, and we’d better get it right. And soon.
Artists and entrepreneurs always feel this way. The act of creating something out of nothing is a quintessentially existential act. Let’s say you had one chance to do something today. That’s probably what the artist will work on.
As of this mailing, there are still tickets available for the final performance in our series of events celebrating the life of David Bowie, this one at CLE Urban Winery in Cleveland Heights on Fri 1/17. We’ll distill the essence of the iconic artist’s complete life, then Vanity Crash will rattle the bottle racks with some favorites, deep cuts and their own cool tunes.
Our food choices need to be sustainable. Local food advocate Steve Corso has started a new non-profit, The Food Shed, improving the connections between food producers and their markets, starting small with a fermentation workshop this week. Inlet Dance produces new work at the Akron Civic Theatre created by two African-American dancers in their company, The Black Card Project. MLK Day is a the best time to check out local museums who are offering free admission, and reflect on his legacy of courage, determination and non-violence. One wonders how many more chances we’ll have. –Thomas Mulready
