Foreclosure Crisis
In response to Occupy Wall Street’s Call for a “National Day of Action,” regarding the millions of families facing fraudulent foreclosure, I teamed up with my local Occupy, here, in Charleston, SC, to help raise awareness about this issue in our community.

All Day, All Week: Occupy Wall Street

Mel Chin: Revival Field
Amidst the new cultural trend to go green, many artists are responding to a changing planet with their artwork.
