the feature that fills in the first name of each email recipient
in their email because some
people were afraid of it and now have nightmares. And

week because I don't want to be redundant but there are some
fine updates to arts night out which is tomorrow and
a few new things so here ya go.

PRESENTS SITE 92
presents Site 92, a show featuring site-specific works created
by artists responding to Smack Mellon�s new home at 92 Plymouth
Street with installations by 1 or 2 people we know
Exhibition DatesJanuary 21- March 5, 2006
Daytime ReceptionSaturday, January 21, 3- 6pm
Situated between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges on the
park, Smack Mellon�s new home is an especially exciting space
with tremendous architectural elements. The12,000 square foot
space boasts a ceiling that soars to 35 feet. There are 25
windows on two levels, providing beautiful light and a spectacular
view of Manhattan and the East River. Its history as the boiler
building is evident in its main architectural feature: a giant
coal trough. Columns run the length of the main gallery space,
holding up a huge concrete structure that once provided steam
heat for the Gair Company�s buildings in the neighborhood.
This unparalleled architectural element provides plenty of
interesting nooks and crannies for artists to create unique
installation spirals out from 2 metal columns to create
a reverse turbulent of castaways. Found and gathered throw
aways from the social world, from domestic, industrial and
natural sites, spin up off the ground in her linear spiral
created out of carved sapling.
Carey Ascenzo, Florence-raised artist, also a genius
(and daughter of Maureen
"peaceri bbon.org" Scanlon), tellicherry-peppered the
brick wall with tiny knotted red wire balls. These small
dots are found clustered in various groups around the wall
like an infestation of insects or crystal formations.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE FABULOUS SUSAN MIKULA AND RACHEL MADDOW
So, theotherday I was at my mailbox, key in hand,
about to open the mailbox and Mike
was at *his* mailbox nearby and I said,
"Think there's a random bag of money in my mailbox?"
to which he replied something about bags of money
in his mailbox too and then I opened the little
door and there was...a random envelope of money
from Susan And Rachel! With a sweet little note
saying, "Please accept this money to defray the
cost of putting out your great newsletter! Cheers!"
and then of course I got all dramatic & emotional
and mike ran off. How incredibly sweet and thoughtful
and unexpected! Thanks again Susan and Rachel. asante,
Ita daktari Duka la dawa <---swahili for thank
