ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
ARTPIL / Prescription .028
Another week in review

 

This weekend marked the one year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration; the U.S. Government shuts down failing to pass appropriations legislation; meanwhile tens of thousands took to the streets again to reassert their spirit in celebration of the one year anniversary of the Women’s March in Washington resisting Trump’s inauguration. In no particular order or correlation. Or perhaps… And now for the arts.
