#EidGhadir is widely celebrated not just by #Twelver but also #Ismaili and #Zaydi #Shia - the impact on the arts is also considerable 1/ Image

Dear @realDonaldTrump @DHSgov @VP @attorneygeneral & @PortlandPolice:

Legal Scholars confirm #1stAmendment right to the commons grants citizens UNLIMITED USE of public areas for #freespeech using REMOVABLE SIGNS! (thread!) Image
Apparently, since 1789 #USCitizens have had the constitutional right to use public property nationwide to post REMOVABLE political (non-commercial) speech!
And thanks to the precedent set by flags on overpasses after 9/11 & #BrownvCalTrans, this extends to freeways! (cont.) Image
The ramifications of this are HUGE! For Portland & Federal Govt. No messy, time-consuming clean-up! Say Goodbye! to strenuous clubbing, stinky #teargas, crowd-control & endless litigation! Say #Hello! to #Art, more interesting commutes & good old Civic Participation! (cont.) Image

Art, Galleries, human shipments, trafficking, coverups>>

In my book 'Jeffrey Epstein: Predator, Spy' I include a chapter on Howard Gutman a former U.S. Ambassador
to Belgium. Gutman was outed as a child molester by a whistleblower and when I pieced it together it looked like another "Watergate" cover-up.

Break-ins into the whistleblower's attorney's office, harassment by the State Department, with the expected "nothing to see here"
statement, replete with computer hacking of emails, and with applied pressure from Patrick Kennedy (who was the Assistant Secretary of State during the Bill Clinton/George W. Bush White House from 1993 to 2001) who, as per the 2nd whistlebower (YES, there were two), made the

The story behind this amazing painting.


According to a 19th-century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day.
The Lie says to the Truth: "It's a marvellous day today!”
The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day WAS really beautiful.
They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well.
The Lie tells the Truth: "The water is very nice, let's take a bath together!"
The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing.
Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth, and runs away.
The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.

Music accompanied nearly all aspects of Ancient Greek life: religion, funerals, the harvest, military marches & of course poetry! Today’s #MuseumsUnlocked #thread highlights archaeological evidence for Greek #music & an excellent regional museum!
#archaeology #greece #art
The study of Ancient Greek music is a large field on its own, with scholars focusing on everything from musical theory to notation and everything in between!

Songs are preserved in texts and inscriptions like these from Sounion, Vrasna, & Volos, each with its own notation style!
What were the instruments of Ancient Greek music? There’s an excellent exhibition of artifacts and reconstructions at the Archaeological Museum of Arta in Western Greece, which give us the opportunity to see what the most common instruments looked like. Let’s do a quick review!

When my talented and beautiful youngest sister offered to paint me something, for some reason the image of Miles Davis at Birdland popped into my head. A cool New York jazz club back in the day… a scene that made me wish I had a time machine. She loved the idea and... ImageImageImageImage
with the extra time due to Covid-19 lockdown started working on it. That was at the end of April.
I read more about the Birdland sessions and quickly realized this was where Miles was assaulted and unlawfully arrested in New York City. He took a break after a set (an Armed Forces
Day broadcast) and walked a white girl upstairs to get a taxi, he then stayed outside to smoke a cigarette. A white police officer approached and told him to "move on" and when Miles said, "For what?" and explained he was working downstairs pointing to HIS name on the sign,

At St Cadoc's, Llangattock Vibon Avel, when it came to stained glass, no expense was spared.
Every window in this medieval church bursts with Victorian vibrancy, with examples from some of the very best makers of the era.

Hands up who's ready for a stained glass trip?

Charles Eamer Kempe created the window in the Rolls Chapel: a four light line-up of superstar saints. But the luminous St Michael in golden armour steals the show. His wings shimmer with peacock feathers, and a blood-red creature - half man half beast watches from his feet.

Earlier in his career, Kempe crafted an orchestra of angels to fill the double tiers of the west window. They play under starry skies with a fantasy citadel behind them.
One angel plays the triangle, an instrument first documented in the 10th century.

A #thread of some of the surreal nude photography of the great #AndreDeDienes Image
#AndreDeDienes was a Hungarian born photographer who is known for his dramatic juxtapositions and often darkly romantic themes, like this one from 1949 Image
Though his art photography was often of nude models, easily his most famous work were the photographs of a young #NormaJean, later and better known as #MarilynMonroe—who did not usually pose nude. The two would collaborate together many times over their careers. ImageImageImageImage
