Staging Building the Wall Before Trump Builds His Wall
Robert Schenkkan races to get his latest work on stage
Arts Story  August 31, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...If we the people were going to accept such beyond-the-pale behavior, then what other moral standards that we'd held previously might we be willing to sacrifice down the line? Seeing "a fundamental attack on basic American values," as he told one interviewer, Schenkkan started writing, and wrote with the speed and intensity of a wildfire (hardly an account of the play's creation doesn't reference the "white-hot fury" in which it was penned). Within a week, Schenkkan had his play, Building the Wall, a compact two-hander set 1,000 days into the Trump administration..."

Arts Review  September 7, 2017, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...His nuanced grasp of how a country this massive and diverse swings from one extreme to another is clear. In Building the Wall, he shrinks his sometimes massive visions into a two-character, one-room play, featuring Gloria, a college professor (Franchelle Stewart Dorn), interviewing Rick, a prisoner in a Texas penitentiary (David Sitler), and he causes momentous conflicts and confusions to play out between these two people...."

More Than Something Hanging on the Wall
Robert Bonar on the Dell Children's collection
Arts Story  January 18, 2008, by Rebecca S. Cohen
"...There's a lot we can do to make sure we expose as many people as we can to the artwork in the hospital, because there's a story behind each one of them – either about the artist or the piece itself and where it came from and what it depicts and why. I just don't want it to become something colorful hanging on the wall that people glance at and move on..."

Fantastic Fest 2014: Whispers Behind the Wall
Let’s lynch the landlady
DAILY Screens  September 21, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...Director Grzegorz Muskala makes the most of a virtually single-room story via some anxiety-inducing set- and sound-designs that practically scream “No vacancies in Hell.” The lurid, Argento-esque wallpaper and artworks in Simone’s flat are enough to drive anyone mad after a while, and Martin’s new home comes complete with a hidden passageway and paint the color of a consumptive’s snot. That’s all buoyed by a trio of top-notch performances from Redetzki, Panzner, and Almut Zilcher as a witchy next-door neighbor who looks as though she just returned from Rosemary’s baby’s de-christening...."

Austin @ Large: The Writing on the Wall
If neighborhoods don't embrace Smart Growth, the city as a whole will get stuck with stupid growth.
News Column  December 19, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...The details are arcane. We'll skip them.) Two days later, in last week's column, I discussed with obvious pleasure the results of the Envision Central Texas survey -- which heartily endorsed increasing Austin's residential density -- and wrote that neighborhood leaders who object to such change should "read the writing on the wall." Well, bucko, you ask, which is it?..."

That Humongous Hotel Going Up Next Door to The Hideout Downtown?
Yeah, say Badr & Janik, it's gonna impact a thing or two, alright.
DAILY Arts  April 21, 2014, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The new skyscraping structure that's, what, eventually going to be sharing a wall with The Hideout Theatre? Is that even possible? And what does it mean for the Hideout's overflowing slate of improv shows and classes, for its epicenter of caffeine and wi-fi and tasty noms, during the tourist-oriented behemoth's lengthy construction process? That's what we're reporting on here – the imminent neighbors' concerns and general reactions – via an interview with two of The Hideout's owners, Kareem Badr and Roy Janik...."

Downtown's boom has busted, yet developers still build.
News Story  January 17, 2003, by Amy Smith

Financial analysts from here to Wall Street have been asking the same question since late 2001, when Cousins Properties Inc., an Atlanta-based real-estate trust with deep pockets, jump-started construction on an office high-rise -- after September 11. Even before the attacks, local developers had assumed Cousins would delay the project..."

Reflections in a Blank Wall
Florian Slotawa's exhibition tells us more about Arthouse than the artist
Arts Story  December 21, 2007, by Rachel Cook
"...Sometimes an artist imports his practice into a space to create what is typically referred to as a site-specific installation. He utilizes the actual walls of the exhibition space as elements within the installation, adding or subtracting elements, shifting walls, floors, or even ceilings to create a world filled with his colors, sounds, movements, and textures..."

Tying the Knot: A Drama
Yes, the merger of Austin's Paramount Theatre and State Theater Company is a business affair, but since theatres traffic in stories, human dramas that talk to us about life, this historic event deserves to be looked at as a story, the story of a wedding between two neighbors.
Arts Story  August 25, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...Forget merger. Think wedding. Yes, the union of the Paramount Theatre for the Performing Arts and the State Theater Company is a business affair, replete with all the balance sheets and boardroom agendas and dbas of your standard Wall Street merger, but that's so cold, so faceless, so Eighties..."

Page Two: Sitting on the Dock of the Bay Watching the Tide Roll Away
The Chronicle at 35
Columns  September 1, 2016, by Louis Black
"...Robert Faires: "To see art as a task, as a duty, as work, is to blind ourselves to many of the aspects that make art worthwhile: the passion it displays, the beauty of its form, the simple spark of creativity behind it. When I was so focused on getting under the skin of Olivia Moore's exhibit at Women & Their Work, I was overlooking the obvious pleasures there: the sumptuous shades of orange utilized in the tiles of her entry wall, the care with which her Ghost Station's steel frame was constructed, the subtle graininess and flecks of color in the pulped posters pasted on the wall and illuminated..."

"..."Some people here [in Nashville] don't get it," she says about the proliferation of Day of the Dead icons, Mexican crosses and snakes, and various Virgins of Guadalupe, all neatly arranged on the mantle – images common to anyone who's traveled along the Southern highways of Lucinda's songs. Another wall of shelves holds CDs and books, though not as many as are usually seen in the singer's residences...."

The Lone Ranger
The legend of Jerry Lynn Williams
Music Story  January 27, 2006, by Bill Bentley
"...The first LP came and went fairly fast, and while there were plenty of deep emotions and blazing style on it, the public never connected with either, no matter that label head Clive Davis had personally promised the singer that CBS would do whatever it took to break the album.

Point Austin: The Devil and Gov. Perry
'Spiritual Warfare' is no substitute for the earthly obligations of government
News Column  September 28, 2012, by Michael King
"...According to theologian and constitutional scholar Perry, satanists – starting sometime in the American 1960s, historical source of all evil – are responsible for the notion that, as Perry put it: "Somehow or another there's this, ya know, steel wall, this iron curtain or whatever you want to call it between the church [sic] and people of faith, and this separation of church and state is just false on its face." Perry delivered this revelation just last week, in a conference call organized by hotshot evangelical preacher Rick Scarborough (himself a sanctified nutter who credited Perry's prayer meetings with ending the Texas drought)...."

Who's Teaching Who at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired?
Music Story  February 23, 1996, by Mindy LaBernz
"...Yet spending time within the walls of the TSBVI exposes the real story to be less about those nefarious musicians -- many of whom were actually in Slacker, but whose work ethic belies the tag -- and more about the students themselves and their inherent musicality. Still, the story cannot be told without a very central musician character, a guitar-player whose first and last name will forever be inextricably linked with my experiences inside (and outside) those walls...."

South Congress Avenue trendsetter Continental Club – in business since the Fifties (though it’s been a music venue since the Seventies) – remains the gold standard for music venues, an eternally hip joint where the best of the best play on the regular, which in recent history has included Junior Brown, James McMurtry, country supergroup Heybale!, and – at least twice – Robert Plant..."

As the wall text says, the portrait "would not have a fraction of its power without the stringent crop."..."
