Charlie Harper hand-painted signature: for Todd Oldham by La-z-Boy Artist event: 27 Sep. 2006

ARTIST BIO:
Prolific illustrator, Mr. Charlie Harper, is an artist respected for his colourful & reductive illustrations of nature & animals. Charley-as he prefers-was born on August 4th, 1922 in Frenchtown, West Virginia and served in World War II during his tenure as a student at the Arts Academy of Cincinnati.

In 1947 Charley graduated from art school, married his college love, Edie, & received the first-ever Wilder Traveling Award. Charley & Edie honored the award by traveling for several months across the western United States. Upon returning from his inspirational travels, Harper began working for a commercial art studio in Cincinnati.
After only a few years, he set off on his own as a freelance illustrator for clients including the Ford Motor Company; Golden Press; Crosley Broadcasting Corporation & the National Parks Service.

Charley Harper is both an artist & a conservationist, having designed posters that shed light on our disappearing natural world. In 2005, Harper created a poster for Cornell University’s Bird Laboratory. Charley, Edie & their son, Brett live in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the Cincinnati Museum of Modern Art will feature a retrospective of his prolific work starting 01 November, throughout 2007.

The work which is depicted in my photostream, are of limited silk-screens produced in 1952 for ‘Ford Times’, a now defunct lifestyle magazine produced by the Ford Motor Company and then later compiled for the now out of print book, ‘Birds and Words’. Not only is Charley’s appealing style clearly of the spare & modern tone we associate with the mid – century moment in art & design, he is also a capable naturalist who has been called, "THE Audubon of his time."

His depictions of flora & fauna convey with only the most necessary marks the essences of his subjects. He is also a humorist, yet does not anthropomorphize the animals he chooses to show us. One gets the sense that Mr. Harper doesn’t feel the remove of human distance or superiority toward his subjects, while also respecting with a keen observational power the intricacies & sublime design that is occurring before our eyes & at all times in nature.

I was fortunate to have been a part of hosting an art exibit with him in SoHo. After 50 years, the bird silkscreens he produced for ‘Ford Times Magazine’ have come full-circle to help bring his name to the lips of several new generations…Go Charles!

His book, Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life designed by Todd Oldham, will be launcing in Spring, 2007. It is a collection of Charley’s life’s work from 1947-2006. Included will be: illustrated work from Betty Crocker’s ‘Dinner for Two’, ‘The Golden Book of Biology’, ‘The Animal Kingdom’, ‘Ford Times’, National Parks Posters, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and many more!

The limited edition book, sized 18.5" x 13" (the actual size of Charley’s silk-screen prints), is hardcover with an embossed box, includes a silk-screen print, 385 pages and over 500 images. The Popular Edition book, sized at 12" x 8.5" with an embossed cover, has 385 pages and over 500 images. It will be available Autumn, 2007.

Via Alan Levine – NMC – The Technical Set up for the Event

This came from an email from Dave Pentecost who emailed Alan re: technical setup.

With Beth’s help I got a nice summary of NMC’s technical setups for streaming and "canned" audio and video. No clear solution for video streaming yet for the poor NPO as opposed to MacArthur, but a little more insight.

Here’s Alan Levine’s response:

The video stream was provided by the MacArthur people. I am sure they hired out for a big service. You can attach to a screen any video that QuickTime can play, so a canned movie, like the ones we made available during the week, are QT files addressed via the URL. For a streaming event, the host provides a special streaming URL that we attach to the land.

You could do some amount of streaming using an Apple XServe and QuickTime broadcasting– these are limited since each avatar accessing content in SL needs a sepearat connection, so you can run into bandwidth limitations– this is why we use a outside streaming service for audio– requests hit their network, not ours.

We do have a streaming audio server hosted for us via Limelight Networks (they also serve all video links hosted from their network rather than our web server). We use WinAmp with ShoutCast for streaming from a PC or NiceCast for streaming from a Mac. We route an audio source (teleconference phone, or from an application like Skype) through these to our streaming server, which than handles individual requests.

I have a general schematiic for our audio set up:

Thanks to Alan Levine for that.

As I told Alan, last week with my webmaster pal’s help, I got a streaming server (icecast) and Mac client (Muse) working. It’s the bandwidth limitations that call for the more expensive services.
