Congratulations to Tucson artist +Ruben Moreno for his new mural. If you want to know more about Ruben and his artwork, here is a video on Sonoran Arts Network (scroll down) from the summer of 2013. Video by Ryn Shane-Armstrong. http://www.sonoranartsnetwork.net/video.html I hope this means that Ruben is finally starting to get the attention he deserves.

Before we get too far away from Thanksgiving, here is my latest blog The Art of Thanksgiving. The blog has commentary and art by Thomas Nast (1869), Will Bradley (1898), Jennie Augusta Brownscombe (1914), and Jean Louis Gerome Ferris (1915) depicting various views of Thanksgiving. Access the blog here: http://www.cjshane.com/blog . Below you see Thomas Nast's view which has been described as "utopian" because there were people not usually seen at the Thanksgiving table at that time...and for a long time after....Chinese, blacks, Hispanic, and women (note the University Suffrage sign). Nast was way ahead of his time.

About that wall.....The O'odham were here first and they have something to say about a wall dividing their ancestral lands.
