  • "Skyscapes involves anything to do with the sky," said the arts center's Executive Director Lisa Avila. "Whether it's a bird or airplane in flight, a city of skyscrapers reaching toward the sky or a painting of a beautiful sunset, there are many works of art that may fall into this category. We chose this theme because so many artists either take photos of the sky or paint the sky - or things in the sky." photo by Allen Rich

  • 1849 death of Edgar Allan Poe, American author and poet. Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 October 7, 1849) was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story, and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. On October 3, 1849, Poe was found on the streets of Baltimore delirious, "in great distress, and... in need of immediate assistance", according to the man who found him, Joseph W. Walker. He was taken to the Washington Medical College, where he died on Sunday, October 7, 1849, at 5:00 in the morning. Poe was never coherent long enough to explain how he came to be in his dire condition, and, oddly, was wearing clothes that were not his own. The actual cause of death remains a mystery.
