All the chatter about the 82nd Academy Awards doesn’t amount to much since the show, pre- or post-hoopla, may not be aired in some households because of yet another round of media wranglings _ this time between Cablevision and my local ABC affiliate, Channel 7.
So, what’s another option? ARTARTARTARTARTART IS EVERYWHERE …. in other words get out of the casita and experience the world up close and personal. If you live in New York, consider visiting a few galleries and museums, attend the dozens of shows lined up throughout the boroughs in connection with this week’s Armory Show http://www.armoryartsweek.com or make your own indie doc.
OK, maybe the latter is too ambitious, but it’s better than waiting for the media powers-that-be to resolve their differences and play fair.
