Hey Hannah and the Indy! Nice article. Thanks for the write up!
I think that Roy Linton's satirical poster (the start the day with a smile one) is better than Councilman Kings. Maybe Roy should should share it with both the Mayor and King.
The Gutenberg press stuff is pretty cool. But if you want to see the first printing press, might I recommend a class in Cantonese?
This exhibit must be really great for the author to come away feeling so good about, given his honest givens...I commend Bret for his honesty and good reporting.
Just a reminder that Voodoo is hosting No Pants Thursday this week - June 27th - from 7-9pm. The session will be facilitated by Broken Glass Photography. $10 per person or $5 for Voodoo members.
Great article RyAnne! Colorado Springs has had an enormous and active fetish community for over 15 years and it's great to finally have a place for fetish artists to express themselves. Thank you so much!
The Indy couldn't find ONE single photograph of this Unique art and artist to grace the article with, so as to help familiarize the reader with what you are talking about, and possibly stir up interest in the Show, the Artist, the ART?????
Heaven forbid one might use VISUALS for an article regarding VISUAL ART....Dur.
I know this if off topic, but that's an adorable dress in the photo! Any idea where it's from? (Also: thanks for the info about the show; it sounds wonderful)

Great opportunity to tell folks where to recycle Styrofoam so it doesn't go into landfills. El Paso County has a Recycling Guide on its website. Folks can take clean chunks to Tegrant Corp, 1100 W Garden of the Gods.
CC Students do the crystal stuff...America is about a faithful populace, not a bunch of gazing a crystals.
TejonTech, you know, so you say, that CC graduates "hate America, love Obama, and want a life handed to them," yet you "wonder how well they know the bible!" How sad your omniscience failed right in the middle of your seance! Do you prefer gazing into crystals or reading tea leaves?
I wonder how well they know the bible at CC and its influence on American's underlying assumptions, so they can live effectively in America after graduation...there is a reason these people are unemployable after four years of brain washing.
The liberal faculties at these over priced institutions are the reason for the narcissistic young people who are both not work ready and hate America, who love Obama and want a life handed to them.
Thanks for sharing some of Jay's process. His work seems to be a lot about how we view space and our environment. The installations of his I have seen (through photos) have an effect to the viewer that can be disorienting.
I hope to get a chance to see some of his work in reality (non digital) some day.
I wish I had the courage to do a slam, with a strong voice, loud as the rolling sea, and so much to say, I know I would just freeze up.. hope everyone does good. good luck and thank you luke for all that you do.
THANK YOU LUKE FOR ALL YOU DO FOR ALL OF US.
This is going to be one crazy ride!!! commUNITY! For the people by the people!!!!
I am from the midwest and I am just now reading about these sculptures. From an outsider's viewpoint, I am puzzled. CO Springs is so fortunate to have these beautiful, extraordinary sculptures in the city, and I don't understand why they are not a source of great pride for the people of CO Springs. I certainly don't know the whole story, and I empathize with the neighbors who just want to live their lives in their formerly quiet neighborhood. They deserve that. But these sculptures are one-of-a-kind, intricate sculptures created by an obviously highly intelligent, outstanding artist, and they are magnificent formations! I think if I were a resident, I would want to work toward having these sculptures placed in an outstanding area where they can receive the respect and appreciation they deserve, if the family would agree to that. Then perhaps Lottie could provide tours at that location so that her father's work could be admired and appreciated by future generations. Right now it seems like Lottie is fighting against the whole city of CO Springs, when instead, Lottie and the city should be working together, embracing the special legacy of Starr Kempf.
I second the previous comment. Your research was great!
These folks need to be aware that the obligation of others to "slow down" on the paths is equal to their own common sense obligation to pay attention to their surroundings. I encountered them several times passing under the Uintah Street bridge. Though I had slowed to a stop the numbskulls wandered about with their mouths agage paying no heed and yielding no right of way to those passing by on the trail.
