Here’s another recent piece for KC Studio magazine. We posted it online in early September because it seemed to have some newsworthiness. The article will also appear in the November-December issue in print. I’ve long been entertained by this landmark sculpture. Of course, I just noticed that the trolls came out in force when a lousy local web site ridiculed it when linking to the piece:

I’ve been a bit negligent lately and forgotten to post a few additions to this space. I seem to have been writing up a storm in recent months, working on a biography, on poetry, on a wedding ceremony for friends. And some freelance pieces for KC Studio magazine on art and culture. Here’s one of those, a preview of an exhibit on daguerreotypes and the gold rush:
