The photo above shows HM Queen Beatrix entering through an art installation created by my cousin, Susanne Bruynzeel, a graduating student at the Royal Academy of Art/Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunst in The Hague. On Saturday, June 30, the Queen opened the senior students' Final Exhibit [link in Dutch], which also celebrated the Academy's 325th anniversary. The KABK (founded in 1682) is the oldest in the Netherlands and one of the oldest in Europe.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
