At Least They Get Me…

My 10-year old daughter and her friend…Emily…hijacked my iPhone and left these 3 images on it for me…They admit that it doesn’t really look like me…but they captured the spirit of the bald, hamburger toting, food photographer.  The other two are just plain funny…and shows that at the very least…they get my sense of humor and my politics…funny what kids see.

The Arts…for Haiti

One of my closest friends, David Zukas, has asked me to post this for all of you to see.  He is a painter who works in Afro-Haitian themes, has family in Haiti and wants to use whatever resources he has to help the relief effort.  Please read the message below and see what you can do.  We hope to see you there next Friday night. Click on the image to view the invitation larger.

I am an artist living in New York.  I don’t have much money.  What I have to give is my time, effort and passion.  I will be going to Haiti as part of a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Crisis Response Group or with Hands on Disaster Response (HODR.org).  I will depart with whichever organization can navigate the bureaucratic nightmare quickest and get us on the ground.
I have an upcoming exhibit opening at Shrine in Harlem Friday, January 22nd from 7-9pm.  I am offering my paintings for $1000 each with all proceeds going to Haiti.  You can come to the exhibit and select a painting or visit,
www.davidzukas.com, and choose any painting.  The proceeds will be donated to a relief organization on the ground in Haiti.  I assure you, as a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, money will be spent on emergency supplies or sustainable practices in Port-au-Prince.  Even if I am already in Haiti by the 22nd, the exhibit will go up and proceeds can still make a difference.
We can make a difference.
Peace.
  
 
For those wanting to attend the opening:
Shrine is located on the east side of Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard (7th Avenue), just below 134th Street. It is easily accessible from two subway lines. From the B train, exit at the 135th Street station and walk east, away from the park, one short block across Frederick Douglas Boulevard and one normal block to Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard.
From the 2 or 3 train, exit at the 135th Street station and walk west, away from the hospital, one block to Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard. Various buses also run along St Nicholas Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox Avenue).
The M2 bus runs from the East Village and stops right in front of Shrine’s door.

Photo Credit Correction

I received a comment today pointing out that I did not give a photo credit for the picture that accompanied the World Series Champions Recipe #1 column on November 5th.  The photo was taken from MLB mobile edition and was not credited to any particular photographer. I did not give credit to MLB.com and will do so here.  Reader Frank Smith pointed out the error.
