people power ~ Blair Mountain March day 5
A few days ago someone blocked the public access road to the Blair Mountain Battle Field with boulders that were clearly brought from a mine site. This would prevent the march from using this state road turnout off the highway as a pick up and drop off spot for Marchers who intended to walk up the Public Road to the historic site. A small group of marchers took the initiative to move those boulders with their bare hands. They opened up the road while jeering miners, private security and state police looked on. The action had been cleared by the Dept of Transportation because this turnout was an important safety feature on this windy steep mountain road that is frequently traveled by fast moving over loaded coal trucks.

Trabantimino, completed just one hour before its October 7 opening at Salon 94, welds three aspects of car culture, says photographer Liz Cohen, who spent 8 years building the hybrid: ownership, fabrication and marketing. Aiming to combine design features of two defunct models, representing different cultures-- the East German Trabant and the Chevy El Camino truck--Cohen learned mechanical engineering from several mentors at World Wide Customs, Oakland; Elwood Body Works, Scottsdale, and Kustom Creations in Detroit. In a parody of automotive marketing protocol, Cohen also posed as a pin-up. The show, at Salon 94's reopened gallery, 243 Bowery, includes a wall of 150 b&w prints of tools borrowed from Bill Cherry, Cohen's first mechanic mentor, to make the hybrid, as well as Cohen's pin-up prints and ephemera.
