We Are All Fluxus Artists Now: Natilee Harren on Making the Most of Mundane Tasks | The Chicago Blog | The Chicago Blog

George Maciunas, Fluxus Manifesto, offset lithograph, 1963. By permission of Billie J. Maciunas, PhD.

In the philosophy of Fluxus, everyone’s an artist and everyone can do it. In any case, this is what I do when I don’t know what to do: Pay attention to artists. They know not just how to survive, but how to live—with creativity, wit, compassion, dignity, and grace.

“We will need writers who can remember freedom”: Ursula K Le Guin at the National Book Awards | parker higgins dot net

Ursula K. Le Guin

Right now, I think we need writers who know the difference between the production of a market commodity and the practice of an art. Developing written material to suit sales strategies in order to maximize corporate profit and advertising revenue is not quite the same thing as responsible book publishing or authorship. (Thank you, brave applauders.)

[ . . . ]

Books, you know, they’re not just commodities. The profit motive often is in conflict with the aims of art. We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art—the art of words.

– Ursula K. Le Guin

Artists Canoe Underground To Explore Buried Park River In Hartford. – Courant.com.

Few U. S. cities have their own urban rivers, those that begin and end within the limits of the city. Hartford, Connecticut’s capital, is one. Before flood control engineers forced it into a concrete conduit for burial, it coursed from the Connecticut River between the state capitol and the Broad Street Armory and through the Asylum Hill and West End neighborhoods. Katherine Hepburn skated there as a child. Artists and CT natives Joe McCarthy and Peter Albano, would like to see the river resurfaced, as part of their greater involvement in the iQuilt project, a cultural-based, urban design plan for downtown Hartford. ~ yours truly, df
