William Christenberry, artist of a crumbling, memory-haunted South, dies at 80 - Washington Post

Monday, December 12, 2016

Alzheimer’s disease, said a daughter, Kate Christenberry.Mr. Christenberry — the “t” in his name is silent — began his career as a painter and for decades taught painting and drawing at Washington’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. The small photographs for which he became renowned evoke a vanishing world populated almost solely by dilapidated buildings, rusting automobiles, advertising signs, graves and vegetation growing out of control.Taken with a Kodak Brownie camera, the 3-by-5-inch images were an accidental art form, intended as color guides that Mr. Christenberry taped next to the easel while he worked on his expressionistic paintings. In 1960, he discovered “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” the 1941 book of photographs by Walker Evans and with a poetic text by James Agee.The now-classic book grew out of a trip Evans and Agee made to Hale County, Ala., for Fortune magazine in 1936, the year Mr. Christenberry was born. Mr. Christenberry spent every summer of his childhood in Hale County, where both sets of his grandparents had farms. His family knew many of the people shown in Evans’s photographs.“Let Us Now Praise Famous Men” became Mr. Christenberry’s artistic lodestar, and the words of Agee and other Southern writers, such as William Faulkner and Eudora Welty, strongly shaped his artistic sensibility. He became friends with Evans, whose stark images of weathered buildings and haggard farm families were a lasting visual influence.Most photographers of the time, Evans included, worked in

Cyclists struck and killed by light rail on Super Bowl weekend - Chron.com

Monday, March 27, 2017

Friday, a Rice university professor was struck and killed by the train as she rode her bike to campus near Hermann Park. Marjorie Corcoran died around 8:30 a.m.In southwest Houston, near Fannin Street and Loop 610, another cyclist was hit by the train and died Sunday.These are not isolated incidents caused by tourist activity over the banner weekend.U.S. Department of Transportation runs the National Transit Database and shows that Houston metro travelled 763,219 miles in 2016 from Jan. to Sept. and there were eight light rail collisions with people in that time, compared to other U.S. cities of similar size, it's among the highest number of accidents in the country. Baltimore travels 1.5 million miles and incurred four collisions with people in the same time; Dallas traveled 2.7 million miles and had 10 accidents involving people.One of the possible reasons for the high rate of accidents is that the City of Houston chose an "at-grade" design for the train, which means the tracks are at street level as opposed to being raised off the road or underground.Mary Blitzer, executive director for Bike Houston, a biking advocacy nonprofit in partnership with the City of Houston, said that each of these deaths should be examined more closely to determine the cause of the accident, and look for big-picture solutions."With every serious crash the response should be a complete investigation," she said. "Beyond looking at who is at fault — it's obviously a mistake to travel in front of a moving train — but what are the other underlying causes?"The organization has created a plan to look at how street design impacts pedestrian and cyclist behavior."At Sunset Blvd. it's five minutes if you wait for the walk signal," she said, referring to the intersection where the Rice professor was killed. "Many people will not wait five minutes, they should but they won't. How do we des
