Lacey Yeager is young, captivating, and ambitious enough to take the NYC art world by storm. Groomed at Sotheby's and hungry to keep climbing the social and career ladders put before her, Lacey charms men and women, old and young, rich and even richer with her magnetic charisma and liveliness. Her ascension to the highest tiers of the city parallel the soaring heights--and, at times, the dark lows--of the art world and the country from the late 1990s through today.
By Michael J. Hanley. The planes in this book are wooden handplanes – tools used by woodworkers of the 1700s to build homes and furniture, ships and wagons.

Project Birdsong Takes Flight
Tweet. Vote. Listen to a unique creation!
A new music project was launched on January 6th which will see a piece of music written partly by the collective creativity of twitter users. Tweeters are being invited by composer Christof R Davis to contribute lyrical suggestions to use as source text for a new choral work which he will be writing later in the year. Around 15-20 of the best tweets (as chosen by a public vote) will be used in the finished composition, which will receive its world premiere in the Winter of 2012. The concept is as follows - tweet your lyrical contribution to the project in 130 characters (or less) and add the hashtag #BSong
(to allow all the tweets to be identified and collected into a central location).
This project is designed to bring these short tweets together to create a brilliant piece of choral music which will both reflect the zeitgeist of 2012 but will also live on as a collectively created musical work.
