GRIT AND GLAMOUR: The Photographs of ALLAN TANNENBAUM

I first met Allan while working for the Associated Press in the early 1990s. It wasn't till much later that I discovered his catalog of some of Rock 'N Roll's greatest bands, and celebrities showing their true selves in his portraits. One of my favorites has Jack Nicholson relaxed on a coach with his arms stretched out in a setting that mirrors "The Shining."

Beyond Brooklyn

The celebration begins at Carhenge

On August 21, 2017, Carhenge will be in the direct path of the Total Solar Eclipse at 17:49 (UT) or 11:49 am (MT). Carhenge is a curious replication of England’s Stonehenge by experimental artist Jim Reinders who created the sculpture as a tribute to his father.

Our two locations, Carhenge in Alliance, Nebraska, and Andrews/Murphy/Brasstown in North Carolina, both delivered clear skies and a spectacular show for the Great American Eclipse. It was what we all wished for.
