Penn Station – Photo of the Day

“Any city gets what it admires, will pay for, and, ultimately, deserves. Even when
we had Penn Station, we couldn’t afford to keep it clean. We want and deserve
tin-can Architecture in a tinhorn culture. And we will probably be judged not by
the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed.”
– “Farewell to Penn Station,” New York Times editorial, October 30, 1963

Art of the Day

John Cage. A pioneer of chance music, electronic music and non-standard use of musical instruments.

Cage was elected to the American National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and received innumerable awards and honors both in the United States and in Europe.

He was commissioned by a great many of the most important performing organizations throughout the world, and maintained a very active schedule. It would be extremely difficult to calculate, let alone critically evaluate, the stimulating effect and ramifications that Cage’s work has had on 20th century music and art, for it is clear that the musical developments of our time cannot be understood without taking into account his music and ideas. His invention of the prepared piano and his work with percussion instruments led him to imagine and explore many unique and fascinating ways of structuring the temporal dimension of music.

He is universally recognized as the initiator and leading figure in the field of indeterminate composition by means of chance operations. Arnold Schoenberg said of Cage that he was an “inventor – of genius”.

I remember being a boy about 5-years-old and looking up at this American flag from my father’s rust-colored Monte Carlo after going to Sunday mass at St. Casmir’s Church in the Ironbound, Newark NJ. 30 years later the flag is faded, but it is still there. The building and the image of the American flag imprinted on it have become part of the iconography of the city as well as part of the urban fabric of the city of Newark.
