Midsummer moonlight and a large dog
Just two midsummer night pictures ;one of a large spotted dog and the other of light from a full moon reflecting from the facade of a recently painted brick building .

18th Anniversary of the 1988 Tompkins Square Park Riot
Sunday afternoon the 18th anniversary concert of the 1988 Tompkins Square Park riot was held in TSP with lots of people in attendance and lots of beer consummed . It was one hell-of -an- afternoon party . The perennial favorite "Leftover Krack" closed the party with a ceremonial burning of all the summonses for beer drinking issued by the police during the concert.

Jim opens at the " Village Pour House " .
Friday night I met Jim and Jesse Jane at the "Village Pour House " for the partial opening of the bar/restaurant and the first public viewing of the first of a series of mosaics that he is creating for that establishment . Many that walked by the bar/restaurant and noticed the mosaic were compelled on seeing it to walk over to it and touch the mosaic 's surface . Though this first of the series is not quite finished it is already, in it's unfinished state, quite beautiful and compelling ,manifesting evidence of a thoroughly and masterfully developed mosaic technique. The " Village Pour House " is located at 3rd avenue and 11th street and will soon be fully open to the public .
I must commend the proprietors of the Village Pour House for their choice of Jim's mosaics as a major part of the establishment's ornament . I'm not certain about the total number and kind of mosaics that Jim has been commissioned to create but there will definitely be at least 3 more on the exterior of the bar/restaurant .I must also commend the proprietors for the general assistance ,good will and good quarters that they have afforded Jim and Jesse Jane for the last few weeks .
