DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTO Satchel Ramos watched aerosol-paint artist Josh Griffin create a mural-sized portrait of jazz great Wynton Marsalis. One day, Satchel said, I hope you paint my portrait, too.

Five years later, Griffin did. Sadly, Satchel was not around to see it. Lots of other people were.

Look At All That Music

by Lucy Gellman | Sep 16, 2014 12:04 pm

Yale University Art Gallery Collection Jessica Sack motioned to Anthony Hernandez’ Landscapes for the Homeless # 68, asking the audience what they saw.

Slave (Statues) Duel It Out On Chapel Street

by Allan Appel | Sep 10, 2014 1:59 pm

Yale Center for British Art The mid-19th century Victorians idealized ancient Greece so much that even their elegant, white marble Greek Slave (pictured) seems only a touch downcast. She even wears her chains with the lightness of a bracelet.

Near her, not three feet away stands the The American Slave, created 11 years later in the heat of the Civil War: She’s made of bronze, and her chains hang heavy and industrial from her wrists. Her feet even stand on a shell-strewn sea shore where she awaits the horrors of the Middle Passage.

On Roman Stay-cation, The Garlic Came Back

by Allan Appel | Sep 5, 2014 1:24 pm

As I stared at No. 64 on the map hanging in the Knights of Columbus Museum, Il Gesu, I could hear the honking of the Roman drivers from the Largo di Torre Argentina, where our hotel was, and even taste the tang of the pistachio.
