New in Graphic Novels
The Chronicle Comics & Manga Team hunts down some inky delights
DAILY Books  May 7, 2009, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The topic is "What It's Like To Be Jeffrey Brown," a much more entertaining and (at times) harrowing topic than you might expect. Well, unless you've read Brown's previous autobiographical works – Clumsy, Unlikely, Every Girl is the End of the World for Me, and others – because then you'd know this funny and brave and not untroubled man holds little in reserve, baring his soul, unveiling his heartbreaks (and other, more squickily physical maladies) for the world to see..."

Planet Plan It
You can help plan the arts' future in downtown Austin's extreme makeover at a Community Charrette on May 14
Arts Story  May 13, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...As Austin moves closer and closer to Extreme Makeover: The Downtown Edition, with high-rise office towers and multistory condo and apartment buildings set to sprout all over the place, it seems prudent to ask: Where do the arts fit into all this? You can not only find out the answer so far but contribute to the direction of the arts in future downtown planning by attending a Community Charrette sponsored by the city of Austin's Cultural Arts Division this Saturday. Over six hours, participants will learn about work to-date on a Downtown Arts Master Plan, current civic and public art trends, and a project timeline, then be able to discuss specific districts stretching from Auditorium Shores to the UT campus (Seaholm, West End Market, Warehouse, Second Street Retail, Uptown, East Sixth, Rainey, Red River, et al.) in terms of their existing conditions and the future, with the arts further integrated into them to enhance downtown for residents, businesses, and visitors..."

Angelina Eberly returns to the scene of the crime
News Story  September 24, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...In case you don't know this bit of local lore, Angelina Eberly was an "innkeeper" (to be decorous about it) in the raw frontier town of Austin, founded but three years before as Republic of Texas President Mirabeau Lamar's "seat of Empire." By 1842, Lamar had been succeeded by Sam Houston (in his second go-round as RoT president), whose dislike for Austin was well known – "the most unfortunate place on earth for a seat of government" – and who thought the capital should return to, um, Houston, where it had last been before Lamar's term in office...."

Books Column  June 18, 2004, by Shawn Badgley
"...Of course, In the Shadow of Our House (SMU Press, 2001), his excellent and well-received debut short-story collection, probably had a little impact, as well, along with his work as the program coordinator of the Undergraduate Writing Center at UT and as a Visiting Fiction Writer at Southwestern University in Georgetown. Blackwood – a judge of the Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest for the past three years – will start his residence in September and will work on finishing his novel, See How Small..."

City Offers Arts Venue Aid ASAP
Cultural Arts Division's Art Space Assistance Program will award $200,000 in grants to creatives in need this summer
Arts Story  June 29, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Given that area artists have for years been sounding the alarm about skyrocketing rents and getting priced out of venues they've created and run, and that 16 months have passed since Mayor Steve Adler named the lack of affordable space for artists a priority concern in his Austin Music & Creative Ecosystem Omnibus Resolution, the city of Austin's newly minted response to the crisis, the Art Space Assistance Program, arrives with an acronym fairly dripping with irony: ASAP. Many a group has been displaced or nearly so in the time it's taken to develop this program – a program, it's worth noting, that's only approved and funded for this fiscal year..."

Former Texas Commissioner of Education Robert Scott has called the current standardized testings regime, which now eats 28 to 45 days each school year, “a perversion of the original intent.” Meanwhile, with a mystery multi-billion dollar surplus partially bankrolled by underfunded public education programs, activists want to know if the money will return bygone programs...."

Arts Story  March 31, 2000, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...This payoff was certainly experienced by audiences of Tomlinson's most recent work, Millennium Bug: Why else would they pack house after house for an extended and re-extended run at Hyde Park Theatre? Sure, the promo poster was almost insidiously effective; yeah, he has some ready-made crowds among the arts community, the business-school community, even the religious community; but that wouldn't account for people leaving the theatre with looks of downright epiphany on their grinning mugs...."

“Fool’s Romance / Books From Aeromoto” at the UT VAC
The interactivity of Aeromoto’s installation seizes the spirit of collective action seen in the response to the Mexico City earthquake
Arts Review  October 5, 2017, by Melany Jean
