The most enduring elements in any society are those of self-expression through paintings, music, sculpture, architecture and literature. Our art is the mirror through which we see ourselves, reflecting back to us the way we think, what we believe, and how we feel about and interpret the world around us. And its through these achievements that future generations come to understand the ones that came before. 

We love art, in all its forms -- it's exciting, fun, and often provocative.  We strive to bring to you works that you won't find anywhere else, and we hope you enjoy our selections.

Art & Culture


An art form and a force for social change. Graffiti conjures up images of painted subway trains, building walls, steel storefronts, and any other large flat surfaces. They may be designs or primitive...

Does the Makeup Make the Man?

Getting in touch with your feminine side. Recently at a social gathering, I met a fellow I hadn’t seen in years. From across the room he looked somehow younger than the last time we met. As we...
