Barsamian will explore the history of U. S. imperialism and predatory capitalism and the “Obama Doctrine” in relation to traditional U.S. rules of engagement, and mass media's role in drumming up support for violent means to uncertain ends. Barsamian sets the historical context of U. S. complicity in the death squads of the mid 1960’s in Indonesia revealed in “The Act of Killing,” the chilling documentary film to be screened at the Harwood, Oct. 24/25. Does this complicity continues to this day?

Stories July 2013

3 year old Fidel Contreras was killed by a hit & run driver Friday evening in Vigil Trailer Park. Here you can see his curiosity, mischief and innocence, as he watches Theatro Vagabondo with Siena Sanderson July 8 at the Harwood Neighborhood Art Project. To contribute to funeral expenses, or to the Fidel Fund, to address the need for slowing traffc & creating playgrounds for Taos Trailer Parks call Siena Sanderson, at 613-5600.

Rich Sanders, a great and caring man, died unexpectedly July 19. In Taos he worked first for kids health, leading a huge campaign with the Lion's Club to get all youth's eyes extensively tested in Taos. He also was key in bringing divergent people together to build the new county courthouse complex. Less known was his great passion for everyone learning about their own history, working on the Old Spanish Trail history, and as a black man, unknown black history.

A memorial service was held July 27th 10 am at the St. James Episcopal Church

Charles Strong
Charles Strong, a great artist, philanthropist, and generous man, died Saturday July 27 in Taos. He was an important painter in the abstract-impressionist movement in the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to Taos. Through the Peter & Madeleine Martin Foundation he was a great supporter of the Harwood and artists in Taos, including providing generous support to Cultural Energy. A student of my father John Collier Jr. at the SF Art Institute in the 1960s, he was a long time friend. We will miss him greatly.

Below is a tour he gave of the Harwood Diebenkorn exhibit in 2007.
