Giving Credit Where It’s Due Isn’t Just Right, It Helps Elevate The Local Arts Scene

July 24th, 2020

I want to give kudos to Rein Razer. In our story earlier this week on QuadCities.com on her upcoming burlesque show, Rein Razer’s Court of Royalty, coming to Village Theater tonight, she said the following:   “I got the idea from how the Speakeasy was doing their booking for shows.”   Seems simple, right?

What Are Your Creative Goals For 2017?

April 21st, 2017

As I entered the New Year, I was reflecting on my creative and artistic plans for 2017. Creativity and Innovation resonated with me in each thought.
