Occupy Art Is Here Again

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. Occupy Art is here again. Well actually it's Occupy Art is almost here again as I type this blog post. And I know Occupy Art is almost here again because that Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry Facebook event invite says so. And so today finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 900 and something, I think..... And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast, well sort of fast. And actually Occupy Art was already here before on this blog at Theater For The New City a couple of years ago. It's just that this time that Occupy Art Show finds itself at The Bowery Poetry Club, that finds itself in that city of New York, that finds itself in that neighborhood of the Lower East Side that now calls itself the East Village for real estate marketing purposes, maybe. And so I thought that this would be a good reason to drag this Occupy Art blog out of the blogger closet again that has been collecting blogger dust since its last post a couple of years ago. Oh, and ditto a few days later.... and that Occupy Art Photo that Galinsky posted on his Facebook page, well that's just Occupy Art cool. And that Occupy Art Show event invite reads as follows:

Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry Club Sunday, January 26, 8:30pm until 10:30pm
