Wednesday, November 20th, 2013
Woody Guthrie’s “Pastures of Plenty,” describes a land full of promise through the eyes of someone who never gets a fair shake. The song serves as an inspiration for the latest AudioFiles, as we look at some modern-day parallels to Guthrie’s 1941 ballad.

Shedding Lights on Capitalism

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Just two days after Wall Street marked record-high closings, a massive neon scoreboard in Times Square beamed one word: “Capitalism.”

Passersby got to vote “true” or “false” when presented the phrase,”Capitalism Works for Me!” as part on interactive installation by artist Steve Lambert.

New York is the 10th city on the art project’s two-year run. Lambert’s work is being presented as a part of the French Institute Alliance Française’s 2013 Crossing the Line festival.
