Chef Dana Herbet
JulieAnne Cross

Not sure about you, but the first few months of COVID found me simply staring at my laptop most of the day, even when I didn’t have any particular work due, and then staring at my television all evening. Thankfully, the arrival of summer infused some energy and outdoor time into the mix, but the quantity of creative or inspired work that I’ve generated amounts to bupkis (translated: nothing at all)...

Kim Klabe's All Revved Up with No Place to Go
Jill Althouse-Wood

The year was 2017. As an artist and a citizen, Kim Klabe was frustrated. Living in Rehoboth, DE, she was painting flawlessly rendered oil paintings of seascapes, old beach cottages, and boats, trying to sell them at art shows where she fought for notice in a sea of comparable work. The competition was brutal. After thirty years of putting in the work, her art was stagnating. Painting angles and the sharp edges of rooflines became a chore, and for what? She was paying more in fees to enter shows than she was making in sales...

Morris James presents their donation to Culture Restoration, Inc.

If you happened to be walking past Wilmington’s Federal building by the Western entrance of Peter Spencer Plaza on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 7, you would have caught a glimpse of a check-presentation ceremony. We are all familiar with such a scene: a larger-than-life check that will never see the inside of a bank, smiling people, and the feel-good photo opp. And while the smiles may be obscured in these masked days of COVID-19, the goodwill is heightened. We all need a little good news, at this point in 2020, but it is more than that. Look a little closer at this scene and you will see an INtersection of everything the city of Wilmington has to offer—from corporate to non-profit, from history to culture, and from government to religion. All of this is on display on this sunny afternoon to celebrate Black lives and culture and promote social justice reform...

An Evening with J.R. Martinez
Jill Althouse-Wood

A pivotal scene in J.R. Martinez’s autobiography, Full of Heart, describes the moment that Martinez looked into the mirror for the first time after surviving a bomb that hit his Humvee while he was serving in U.S. Army in Iraq. He had suffered burns to 34% of his body—and those were just the visible wounds. Martinez’s devastation at the reflection in the mirror manifested as rage. He was only nineteen...

Erica Jones - photo by Joe del Tufo

In the space of ten minutes, three passersbys on the 200 block of West 9th Street stop to praise the mural that artist Erica Jones is in the process of painting. On a step ladder, jars of milky paint, all manner of magenta, lie in wait, as Jones considers her progress on her work, a larger-than-life portrait of slain Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau.
