The Post Standard & - Syracuse West Side arts: Building creative muscles in teens and rebuilding a neighborhood

VERY important article for the emerging arts sceners in yesterday's Syracuse Post-Standard by Maarten Jacobs on the effort to re-vitalize Syracuse via the arts, art education, public arts projects; I'm proud to have friends & colleagues working on the effort & have plans to get involved as well.

 One of my ambitions has been to teach drawing, if nobody will let me do it in a school I'll be DELIGHTED to go to a community center and help young urban dwellers find something else to live for other than the life of a street thug. Or just giving folks a positive message about their world, and how art can (and always will) enhance their lives.
