The Sweet OrangeThe sweet orange did not arrive in Europe until the 15th century. On his voyage around the Cape of Good Hope in 1498, Vasco da Gama discovered the sweet orange in East Africa (which was on the Arab trade routes).

No country is ever FORCED to invade another. The US has gotten involved in more military action than I would prefer, but I don pretend that the Middle East is some victimized group of countries we picking on for the hell of it.

Youth Schools entries rose to seven and, as the future of theatre lies with our young people, the quality of both drama and musical productions by schools and youth groups in Yorkshire continues to be a considerable source of pride.

The ultra famous Warhol certainly fits that bill, as a printmaker, photographer, filmmaker and celebrity provocateur.Warhol pale, distantand maddeningly tight lipped apparently enjoyed toying with the press, issuing terse sound bites when asked to explain his renegade philosophy. (See the video below for evidence.) “Art is anything you can get away with,” hesaid, borrowing the sentiment from Canadian media guru Marshall McLuhan.The artist’saudacity was legendary elevating consumer goods to gallery status, for example, in a 1964 show called “The American Supermarket,” and mass producing artworks in his assembly line Factory but Warhol’s ideas were groundbreaking and his output has stood the test of time.Many of the pieces in “Warhol: Fabricated”will make their Birmingham debut in the AIEVA show,which includes the well known”Marilyn.”Other works include “Red Lenin,” “Vote McGovern,” “Mick Jagger,” “Birmingham Race Riot,” “Hammer and Sickle,” “Joseph Beuys in Memoriam,” “Skulls,” “Cologne Cathedral,” “Sitting Bull,” “Geronimo,” “Annie Oakley,” “Kachina Dolls,” “Electric Chair” and “Lou Reed and Edie Sedgwick” screen tests.In tandem with “Warhol: Fabricated,” Charles Lutzwill display works from his “Denied Warhol Paintings and Sculpture” series.
