    HOLSTEIN, Iowa -- With demand for its architectural doors surging, VT Industries officials explored potential expansion sites last year. The company turned to the small Northwest Iowa city where the third-generation business got its start more than 50 years ago and continues to flourish. “We looked around the country to decide where we were going to either start up a new plant or add on to one of our existing plants and we really felt like with our workforce here and how well everything’s running here we wanted to keep the facility here in Holstein and expand upon it," said...

    Music Choice. Classical Masterpieces ^ | 3/25/2027 | CharlesOconnell
    A fussy, effete lttle man, whose own character is well expressed by that of the protagonist in Don Giovanni, going through life transfixed with his own navel (but that's too high). In violin concerto no. 5 in A major, he's using the noble instrument of Stradivarius, Guarneri and Amati as his own pudenda, a prolonged act of cultural onanism. His failure even to attempt to approach God in emulation of the Blessed angels, shows how granting the boon of total, infused knowledge is casting pearls before swine to a corrupt little human. He lived as if his genius had been...

    For many centuries, classical Western art was transmitted from generation to generation. Masters passed down their skills to disciples, who eventually became masters themselves, and so it continued. Over many generations, their techniques were honed to a high level of perfection. This tradition lasted up to the 20th century, when it ceased all at once and artistic inheritance was replaced quickly by one -ism after anotherimpressionism, post-impressionism, and cubism, to name a few. What caused this radical transformation, and why is art changing at such a rapid pace today? As trends in modern art have changed like the wind, drifting...

    <p>In August 2015 viewers of the first Republican primary debate could be forgiven for thinking that Donald Trump was finished. Youve called women you dont like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals, the moderator, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, said to him. You once told a Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president? Trump didnt act contrite, or statesmanlike, as conventional candidates might have done. Instead, he interrupted Kelly with another nasty dig, about Rosie ODonnell, and volunteered that hed probably insulted others, too. Many pundits proclaimed that the response cemented Trumps unelectability.</p>

    Theres a group of artists who most of the general public has yet to know exist. These are highly skilled painters, sculptors, and draftsmen trained in ateliers or academies who are not embarrassed to utter the word beautiful at a time when that word is generally scorned by the contemporary art establishment. Youll hardly ever see their works in major museums or at major galleries for longer than a short stint. Most of their works are whisked away by private collectors or are sitting in their studios, waiting to be discovered. These artists value quality over quantity, sincerity over cynicism,...

    SIERRA VISTA -- Easter may still be over a month away, but one local Pysanky artist has been working on her eggs for weeks. Ruthann McCaulley decorates eggs by Pysanky method, a Ukrainian folk art that uses a kistka or writing tool to apply hot wax to an egg followed by a progression of various color dyes. After each dye, additional detail is applied with wax until the design is complete. The big finale happens when the wax is removed and the finished artwork is revealed. Pysanky is an age old art deeply rooted in symbolic meaning. Egg designs and...

    With AW17 fashion season in full swing, it seems near impossible to avoid the subject of politics when discussing the runway shows and presentations. In a lot of ways it makes sense with Brexit and the Trump presidency throwing the world into increased political turmoil, designers expressing their protest at our current political climate and taking a stand for what they believe in should, in theory, be a positive. However, with many houses expressing a new-found wokeness comes an increased responsibility to practice what they preach, and its here that many of our beloved brands fall short. During New...

    A sign bearing a presidential seal has been posted on a fenced-off plot in Eastern Market designating the area the site of a Future Internment Camp. Printed in dull government hues and scrawled with President Donald Trump's signature, the sign citing "Executive order 9066" almost appears real. Fortunately, its not. But the street artist behind the message says the notion that Trump will someday put people in detention centers for their ethnicity is not farfetched. The sign on Winder Street near Orleans was created by Plastic Jesus, a Los Angeles-based artist known best for public works of social commentary. A...

    The combativeness of the young Trump administration is a beauty to behold. Trump and his team are true fighters as they daily counter-punch the Fake News press and Deep State. The MSM prides itself as a kind of fourth branch of government. Nothing wrong with a strong press, but the mainstream media of the last few decades has been a highly partisan and dishonest one that has done much to destroy our democracy and culture. In May 2015 when Congressman Keith Ellison (an DNC chairman hopeful) predicted on live TV that Donald Trump was a real threat to win the...

    Feb. 11 When I spoke to artist Malcolm Peacock last year in advance of his experiential/participatory artwork "Let the Sun Set on You," he reflected on the many ways in which the deaths of Black people affect history and spark movements, memorials, solidarity. Reflecting on his research for that piece, he said: "It was interesting how history affects death, and how death affects history, depending on who dies, depending on what dies, what will determine how it's spoken about." In this new work, Peacock continues to grapple with death and violence, this time looking at Trayvon Martin, whose death (and...

The removal of the first daughters brand from multiple retailers follows the widespread #GrabYourWallet campaign to boycott businesses the Trump family profits from.

    The mark of a great portrait is its power to reveal the soul of the man or woman being captured. To me, the large banner photo of Trump (below) shown on Trump's current Twitter page is an artful portrait of the man. Here are some things it conveys to me: Amid the whirlwind of political fighting and legal overthrow of a corrupt government, Trump can also retreat into the calmness and repose of a man comfortable with who he is. Though he's comfortable in his Versailles-like apartment at Trump Tower, he notices that the White House, too, has some...

The inspiration behind the poem is to touch on the classical poetry existing throughout American history, and the inauguration poem marks important moments in US political history. Traditionally, the poem began with President John F. Kennedys inauguration in January, 1961, the inaugural poem and has, until now been a purely Democratic Party tradition. The Societys...

A group of UK researchers recently published a paper about their efforts to develop an affordable system that can 3D print onto uneven,...

Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote, So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th, were presumably in that liberal...

    Its an understatement to say that First Lady Michelle Obama has become a favorite of the American People and she will be missed. According to Vogue Magazine she will be affectionately remembered as Americas Mother-in-Chief. Her life on display as First Lady was different from most. Upon becoming First Lady, opinions had been formed prior to as she stomped the grounds for her hubby, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. Intelligent, educated and possessing a mind of her own, she wrote her own stump speeches for her husbands presidential campaign and generally spoke without notes. For instance, speaking at a rally...

    It is a question Kevin Nixon and Sarah Clayman get frequently. Why are two English people in Detroit setting up a music college? said Nixon. Nixon and Clayman have 15 years of history to provide the answer. That is how long theyve been in the music education business teaching young people how to have sustainable careers in the modern music industry. The two started their first college on the south coast of England with 180 students. Within five years, it had grown to 1,000 students. We really identified this niche in the market for young professional musicians wanting to be...

    Regular readers of this blog, our parent publication and pretty much any other outlet covering the advertising industry could be forgiven for thinking that it doubles as a left-of-center political advocacy group. No, really: How many agencies have either directly or indirectly run some kind of anti-Trump ad or stunt over the past year-plus? A whole hell of a lot of them. 180LA and Saatchi & Saatchi referenced The Donald in ads for 360fly and Tecate, respectively, while everyone from GS&P to a group of young, anonymous creatives has registered their disapproval of the Republican nominee via some kind of...

    hile many in media lament the fact that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has an occasional vulgar mouth, these shortsighted fifth columnists fail to consider the entire man. There is one aspect of his life that has been decidedly refined, and that is his architectural taste. In fact, >b>Trump is the consummate conservative when it comes to his developments; his is an explicit rejection of what we might find in an authoritarian or totalitarian regimes. The Washington Post, among the many other old media outlets, ran several screeds complaining about the renovations of Donald Trumps International Hotel, which is the...

    GREENVALE, NY -- During the weekend leading up to the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, Donald J. Trump was ahead of Hillary Clinton by six points, according to polling at Face Place photobooths. While these results might be counter to most news media polls, which show the Democrat ahead of her Republican rival, Apple Industries, the manufacturer of Face Place, says Clinton is now closing the gap. Photobooths enabled with the election option (free to operators) offer patrons a choice of having their visages composited with their choice of major-party candidates for president in this year's race. The informal...
