 Margaret Leng Tan

"Cage liberated 20th-century American music from the almighty European tradition and gave American composers the confidence to be themselves. In fact, not only composers but American artists in general. One can go so far as to say Cage gave all artists the confidence to be themselves. In essence, we are all Cage's spiritual children."

Monday January 26 found us wowed by the presence of visionary high-art priestess, master of the video medium, and (former?) raccoon queen Sarah Jane Rennick. Not only has Sarah Jane managed to become a semi-productive artist less than a year out from LU, but she's also found the key to happiness in life. (low overhead, an art gallery in your bathroom, and high-paying, low impact, part-time work where you get to play with poop. oh, and someone to cover the $phone$) Make sure you submit to her Booty Town Gallery's
