September First Friday

I’m out of town on Friday and won’t be able to attend but it should be interesting after last month’s crackdown. The New Times has an article about it here.

This article seemed pretty balanced. I liked this quote:

“One more statistic: At least one art purchase was made by a cop. Phoenix Police Officer A.C. Myers bought a $40 photograph of himself in riot gear that Holga’s Ian Wender snapped at an anti-war protest in downtown Phoenix in 2003.

“He saw it over my shoulder when he was standing outside my apartment and I opened the door,” says Wender. “Maybe all these cops aren’t such a bad thing after all.”
