Celebration Of Life

Life may indeed imitate art, but the deal is commutative. Art also imitates life. And the century just past, with its world wars, holocausts, nuclear explosions, five-year plans and media-fed mass culture, has inspired a body of art as depressing, angst-ridden and emotionally raw as the era that spawned it. That's why the varied works of Alexander Calder (1898-1976) are such a delight. Ingenuity, clarity and a spirit of play animate the prints, sculptures, mobiles, etchings, lithographs, woolen tapestries and book illustrations churned out with such regularity by the Pennsylvania-born artist, whose breezy inner vision did so much to leaven the heaviness of his aesthetic time.

Hundreds gathered Monday night to say goodbye to Sandtown leader Allan Tibbels, the man credited for revitalizing the neighborhood for more than 20 years and who brought together people from all walks of life. The celebration of Mr. Tibbels' life was highlighted through song, prayer and laughter, as many of his partners, family and adopted family took to the lectern at New Shiloh Baptist Church to share their reflections of a man who spent part of his life in a wheelchair but never wavered in his mission to build a community.
