Art and Politics in the the Hood

Published on March 1, 2009

Tweet I usually leave politics out of my blog. I keep up with local politics fairly well, have served on committees for the City of Beverly Hills, and have endorsed candidates from time to time, but consider this to be my own personal business. I am much more art than politics. Worlds collided with the […]
