Worth a Look

Here are a few posts from Last Week's Greenpage that mightbe worth your time...

Bowie's magical wardrobe led his fans into strange new musical landscapes There is no real need to reiterate that Bowie was a fashion icon. That, if this week’s posthumous tributes are anything to go by, is a given.

Part organization, part paranoia—I wanted to have a record of where I’d sent my stuff.

SM as Whistle-Blower

Stage Directions: You are rehearsing a show and the director wants to change the script. What should you do? What can you do?

It is a terrific interview, especially when Sherman makes points about authorial intent and what we are teaching aspiring artists and audiences about intellectual property in art.
