  1. Powerful, political art at this show. Especially enjoyed paintings by Fitz of St. Barack, St. Donald, and St. Jose. Also marveled at art by local cartoonist/artist Chris Britt, mostly satires of Donald Trump. Beautiful dance performance by Nahul, followed by talk on censorship by Fitz who said after today’s U. S. Senate vote for Brett Kavanaugh, that voters needed to “kick ass” this November 6. Fitz said he gets lots of hate mail and so did Chris Britt after a recent cartoon, so much so that he had to shut down his FB page. Fitz talked about cartoonists/artists who have been tortured and beaten for expressing their beliefs, even Sophie Scholl who distributed anti-Nazi flyers in 1943 and was executed, along w/ her brother, her boyfriend in Munich. Fitz’s message was “fear no idea”. Then Amadhia, a transgendered woman spoke about being Timothy for 39 years. Questions from the audience were about how her adoptive parents dealt with her change, what young memories did she have of questioning her gender, when did she realize who she was, and what about others who are troubled, seeking psychiatric help. Amadhia is now married to a man, and said you “can’t run from who you are, to live life to the fullest.”
    Third speaker was for Yes on 127 Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona on the General Election ballot.
    Check out this show at the Steinfeld Warehouse, as many of these artists are protesting the current state of affairs.
