A trip to an art show

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending Terrel Baptsite's 3rd gallery opening, "!!<!!{DIASPORA}" in Austin, TX at the Pump Project Art Complex. His artwork is excellent mixed-media (spray paint and use of stencils, acrylics, oils, found objects) which displays a great interplay of metaphors. My girlfriend and I also had the opportunity to stop by the State Capitol building and see a good chunk of the downtown area. We also snuck in Workers (a great photo documentary by SebastiĆ£o Salgado; international economist who poured over six years' worth of effort into this project) and the Texas Chair Project at Austin's Museum of Art.

I also wanted to mention The Office of the President-elect's Open Government website, specifically the "Your Seat at the Table". This site allows all Americans with internet access the ability to read and comment on official transition meeting documentation with all outside organizations. You can even search for issues relevant to you!

Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust

Whe'er I err,
I must, I must.
