First some drawings to take the sting off:
Then, my PEI grant application is due on Friday. I am writing one for an exhibition at Copy slated for September of this year, it is a currently top-secret show involving the work of Beth Brandon and Carrie Collins. Keep yer fingers crossed.
On the budget cutting issue: There was a hearing for Philadelphia Safe and Sound scheduled for Thursday of this week and then it was postponed till next week:
City of Philadelphia Public Hearing Notice The Committee on Public Health and Human Services of the Council of the City of Philadelphia will hold a Public Hearing Thursday, February 21, 2008, at 2:00 PM, in Room 400, City Hall, to hear testimony on the following item: 080139 Resolution authorizing the Council Committee on Public Health and Human Services to hold hearings to investigate the City funding and operational changes of Philadelphia Safe and Sound and its impact on the delivery of social services in Philadelphia.

So my job will already be dissolved but I'm going to the hearing anyways, join me if you wish. It'll be my first time in City Hall.
Third. My band, Paper Napkin will be playing a show at Copy on March 3rd, and oh my god, we haven't played for a year or so.
Last. Given Enough Eyeballs the show I'm curating at the Esther M. Klein Gallery, opening March 14th. More on this next week as I want to post a mountain on open source and all the cool artists involved.
