The Monumental Civic Sculpture of Donald De Lue

Donald De Lue, Rocket Thrower, 1964

2,236 words

For nearly 50 years between 1940 and 1988, Donald De Lue (1897–1988) may have executed more monumental public commissions than any other sculptor of his generation.

Atlas Shrugged, Part II

2,679 words

There were two other people in the entire theater when I entered. About twenty minutes in, they were kicked out – for sneaking into a showing of Atlas Shrugged Part II. I would conquer this film in the Ayn Rand manner – totally alone.

One has to admire John Aglialoro, the producer of Atlas Shrugged Parts I and II. A successful businessman, these films may be his own John Galt Line. Read more …
