Since U.S. 1 has often used street artists’ images for various stories, we thought it would be positive to thank them by noting that “Urban Architecture,” a show featuring work by some of the region’s strongest street artists, is opening with a free reception at the Princeton Day School Art Gallery, Thursday, December 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The show — the first featuring graffiti art in Princeton — was coordinated by noted Trenton street “writer” Leon Rainbow and includes work by muralists Jon Connor, also a Mercer County Community College drawing and design instructor; Dave Orante, a Princeton Theological Seminary graphic designer; Dean Ras Innocenzi, graphic designer and TerraCycle muralist; Elan Wonder, founding member of Fresh Collective graffiti group; and others, including Sophie Ban, currently exhibiting in the Drumthwacket Gardens.
The exhibition is on view during school hours through Thursday, January 9, at Princeton Day School, 650 Great Road, Princeton.
To the Editor: Impeach & Remove
Donald Trump’s recent attempts to pressure Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election demonstrate that he is a danger to our democracy and to our election security. The House of Representatives is now in the process of writing up articles of impeachment based on the crimes of bribery, abuse of power, and obstruction of Congress.
We believe that No One is Above the Law, especially the President of the United States. If any other American committed these crimes, they would be behind bars — as are so many of Mr. Trump’s colleagues and 2016 campaign workers. That’s why we believe the House of Representatives should vote to impeach Donald Trump, and the Senate should vote to remove him.
The evening before the House vote on Articles of Impeachment, hundreds will rally at Hinds Plaza in Princeton in a call to “Impeach & Remove” this president. We are part of a network of 400 such rallies planned nationwide, in which Americans will take to the streets to make their voices heard. All U.S. Senators, who will judge Donald Trump, should recognize that the public will no longer tolerate his abuse and denigration of his oath of office. The Senate must vote to remove.
We hope your readers will consider joining our “Impeach & Remove” rally on a date to be determined after a floor vote on articles of impeachment is scheduled in the House. Information can be found at www.impeach.org.
