Below are excerpts from articles that I found online relating to "life drawing" where people share their opinions on its benefits to our culture and even the science of how our brain works. None of the works will be obscene, yet we will keep social etiquette to limit the audience to adults-only. You won't want to miss this show, as it is up for one-night-only. - Lisa Bisbee Lentz

The nude figure and Christianity
“We have chosen in the Art Department at Gordon College to work respectfully with the human figure attempting to bring honor and glory to God in the process. We base this, in a Christian context, on a time-honored professional practice, holding the belief that the human form is the crowning achievement of God in Creation – worthy of our expert knowledge, and analogous to the scientific knowledge of the human body in medicine and biology. In our tradition as artists it is seen as the linchpin of our practice of visual knowledge. If you can accurately and expressively draw or paint or sculpt the human form you can draw anything.”

Community Artist Will, Inc. (CAW) is a cooperatively-run incubator for the arts in Eastern North Carolina.
CAW provides artists and audiences of all kinds with practical help and the peer support needed to launch great ideas.

Smith, who has worked for a number of nonprofit organizations across the country, primarily in the arts & culture sector, often having to do with digital strategy.

Plans for a Revolution in the Arts
by Devon V. Smith
From a friend in the NYC arts scene.. Note this section. Wow.
- stakeholders? I want whistleblowers who will blow the doors wide open at institutions who are inefficiently using the public's funds. Not just misappropriating them, but, for any reason, not maximizing the most productive use of capital to create art.

How do you fix a neighborhood? What do you do about crime and drugs and the once-lovely old houses that are falling down?
