The IN Crowd


When Strongpoint merged with Möbius New Media last year, it was a marriage made on Market. Now, the new company, renamed NüPOINT, operates alongside a half dozen performing arts companies inside The Grand Opera House -- as well as in Tucson, where Strongpoint first opened and the partners there still live. 

DLS Discovery

A nondescript set of double doors open onto the breezeway between The Grand Opera House and Jimmy Johns on Market – at least they do some days, when the humidity is just right and hovering around a nice comfortable 35.

I met Peters in the parking lot at the Delaware Contemporary, so she could escort me to her studio. In this month of early darkness and never-ending rain, the Warholian colors of her workspace hit me like a jolt of vitamin C...
