"Everyone deserves music" was one refrain Michael Franti shouted and sang over and over again last night, during "What Does Democracy Look Like?," an event that ambitiously sought to blend art with politics.
The performers-cum-activists on the evening's lineup included Franti, who performed with his nationally renowned hip-hop group Spearhead, and Judith Baca, a Los Angeles muralist who is a Montgomery Fellow at Dartmouth this term.
After an introduction by Rockefeller Center for the Social Sciences director Linda Fowler -- who cracked that this was the first Rocky-sponsored event in some time where the average audience age was under 65 -- Baca took the stage in the Hopkins Center's Alumni Hall.
Clad in a brightly printed shirt, Baca smiled warmly as she introduced the crowd of several hundred students and a few dreadlocked locals to her art.
The audience, seated on the floor, were rapt as Baca used a video presentation to outline her career as a community artist and co-founder of the Social and Public Art Resource Center in Los Angeles.
In 1998, an independent film called "I Love You, Don't Touch Me" was released in major theaters. The film did relatively well for a small independent film -- critics and audiences both liked it.

In her seventh solo album, Tori Amos takes a back seat to the world but a front seat to herself as she plays the role of Scarlet -- the name of a woman trekking across the country, and perhaps also the color of bleeding pains.

What gives Badly Drawn Boy the right to sing lyrics like, "The keys to your heart open the door to the world" with a straight face?
Maybe it's the way he immediately follows it up with a nice twist: "You've got to give me two days, and woman, I'll make you a girl."
The supreme gift of Badly Drawn Boy, a.k.a.

A lost girl, a giant pair of legs and a ridiculous heiress open the action of this term's absurdist mainstage play, "Time Remembered," which began pleasing audiences last Thursday night in Moore Theater.

"Time Remembered" tells the strange story of Prince Albert, who has been inconsolable for years since his love of three days died in an unfortunate accident.
There is a point when the portrayal of art through a different medium can become redundant and mere flattery.
Like well-cooked meals and skyscrapers, good documentaries take on a life beyond their outward function: sometimes you just set out to tell a story and end up creating art.
Jethro Rothe-Kushel '03's film, "Pharaoh's Streets," a film about homelessness in Los Angeles which takes place during the Democratic National Convention in the summer of 2000, began as a narrative but became a creative act.
As soon as one looks past the simple description of the film as a documentary, it becomes art in the deepest sense; that is, it is an expression of humanity through media.
At a screening of his film last night as part of Dartmouth's observance of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Rothe-Kushel noted that his picture "does a poor job of being an activist film." But it is just that lack of motive that makes the film so powerful.
The film was made during the summer after Rothe-Kushel's freshman year through a recearch grant from the College.
