Bent to the Task Debuts at Railroad Museum

An imaginative new exhibit titled “Bent to the Task: The Industrial Art of Ray Carrington” captures the force and spirit of the faceless millions who built America’s industrial past in a new exhibit at the California State Railroad Museum & Foundation.

Thirty-five intriguing sculptures are showcased in the exhibit, all created from repurposed scrap and rail materials – such as hand tools, railroad spikes and track plates – that the local artist collected decades ago from abandoned railroad logging and sawmills in Northern California.

Hallmark, Lifetime, and the LGBTQ Question

by Mark Segal, November 17, 2019

Like me, I'm sure you're beginning to think about the holidays. The Hallmark Channel and Lifetime are already running holiday romance movies 24/7. This year, not only do they have holiday movies for the Black community, they even have one that has a Jewish storyline. Wonder if they have a Chanukah bush?
