DETROIT ARTISTS WORKSHOP: LANGUAGE VS. THE EQUATION

John recently handed me a copy of "Work#6: A 2009 Detroit Artists Workshop Anthology of Generations edited by James Semark, Robin Eichele".

I was moved into another dimension of impression's about detroit, and the 60's as I viewed them (typically with a west-coast bias) and I felt the continuity across the timespan of fifty years or more, since this legendary group of visionary artists--scholar activists--published, performed, protested and transformed the membrane's of American culture.

I dug up some published materials that add context to the DAW' and also help to show some of John's creative pursuits during that period. love, steve.
