This piece by Siloette is among those featured in Cope2's "Top of the Line." I had tried to stop by on opening night this past Thursday, but the line went down the block. This afternoon I had the space to myself. I loved the eclectic mix of artists that includes Cope2, Futura, Fafi, Revok, Shepard Fairey and Ron English. Sadly, the exhibit remains up for only two more days.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
