In the Current Creative Loafing

The cover and an article inside on the Warehouse Arts District (WAD), with WAD-istas  photographed onstage at the Venture Compound. Notice Duncan let his picture be taken.

 Best quotes from the article:

From Jesse Vance: "We want artists to stay in Saint Pete, and we want people to buy their shit."

Brad Kokay: "We want to open their minds like a can of corn."

Jesse Vance: "If you can't have a good time without substances..."

From T. Hampton Dorman: "It's what you see in in creative commerce books. It's a case study playing out in real time". (Quoting Richard Florida's decade-old study, published as The Creative Class.) 

Inside, Blue Lucy's Signs show got picked as one of the weekend must-gos

Congratulations to the WADistas and to Blue Lucy. A year ago, I was one of the first to review the Venture Compound. Glad to see CL giving them some love.
