Arts Story  September 14, 2012, by Robert Faires, Wayne Alan Brenner, Adam Roberts, Dan Solomon and Elizabeth Cobbe
"...You know Bill Cosby – the man's a national treasure! He's also as funny as his career is long, and if you recognize him mostly as Dr. Cliff Huxtable from the most popular primetime show on network TV back in the day, oh, friend, you're missing out, y'see? There'll be, in this lucky audience at the Bass Concert Hall, geezers who recall the Cos from the first iteration of TV's I Spy, middle-aged hipsters who grooved to Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids during their childhood's Saturday mornings, and people of all ages who've laughed themselves into loss of bladder control while listening to the man's classic series of comedy albums from the Sixties..."

Forever Young
The alumni artists of "YLA 15" continue to transform our world into their own
Arts Story  August 13, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...James Huizar's mural, painted right on the walls of the museum's main gallery, welcomes visitors with cartoon clouds, birds, and a blissed-out artist wearing a brown paper sack over his head and torso (he looks to be on a spray-paint high), all of them so huge that you feel like you've wandered into some trippy landscape animated by Walt Disney and Ralph Bakshi in tandem. The dishwater clouds may look uncertain, and the electric lime cloud blowing from the mouth of the skull by the artist may appear toxic, but overall, the scene generates the excited buzz of kids hitting the streets on a summer morning: "Hey, it's a beautiful day..."

Talented If Not Young
The artists in Mexic-Arte's 'YLA No. 11' may be beyond youth, but they're still definitely deserving of attention
Arts Story  September 15, 2006, by Rachel Koper
"...The artists in this show should be proud of their maturity and the personal issues they address in their artwork. Still, as someone who works with actual kids and knows how inspiring and energizing they are, it would be great to see creative people between the ages of 12 and 17 get into this show and reclaim the moniker "young" from these thirtysomethings..."

Letters at 3AM
Our national self-doubt and self-conflict are nothing new, but what is new, in the last 40 years or so, is a state of confused and conflicted values. It is the signature of our era that we live in a world so unstable that its limits may be tested merely by a bumper sticker.

"...If it takes a glaring red flag like the Chronicle's cover to make you consider the issues on even the most basic level, so be it. Some women don't want to be stuck with pushing out kids and then larding them up at Culver's, so get over yourself and realize there's more to the world than whatever is five feet in front of you...."

Overnight Sensation
Sword of Dracula' creator Jason Henderson is taking over the (fantasy) world
Screens Story  January 14, 2005, by Marc Savlov

That notion that the world of the work is very, very large and wide is immensely satisfying, especially to kids."..."
