Pierre Nagely is currently painting a mural in the old Center Stage , which is looking very spiffy lately.

Update on Art Ball Machine

We've Got Balls: Art Balls that is!

Original wacky art
is now available for a mere pittance in the ART BALL machine. Five Yellow Springs Jafa's (Corrine Bayraktaroglu, Nancy Mellon, Talitha Greene, Deb Housh and Jennifer Float) joined forces to bring you art in a ball. Keep your eyes peeled for the "Art Ball" machine outside the Nolaa Gallery in Kings Yard.

Each ball contains a little piece of art and a little joke, quote, or some trivia.
