Points that make or break a Lyceum Future... - Before you can say if lower court judge was correct, it must be found that the lower court followed the rules. - MORE

With no technical terms, he made the technical accessible.

His video explaining the 1986 Challenger disaster before a committee wherein he places a clamped to compression o-ring in ice water and shows that the material, which needed to be resilient, was not resilient at 32 degrees was brilliant.

No science, just logic.

If you ever see the Feynman path integral lecture/video, you will be exposed to math that is beyond the reach of the average person but is explained in such a away that the average person can understand the issue.

We make an efforts at the same, making the legal accessible.

Brooklyn Lyceum Overview -

TL;DR : Idiot buys old warehouse-y building in Brooklyn, runs as arts organization, refinances debt.

Long Form:  The Brooklyn Lyceum (brooklynlyceum.com) started off life as Public Bath #7 in 1910.

By 1937, when Robert Moses closed it as a seemingly punitive measure against the career of Architect Raymond F. Almirall (who sat as lead foreman on a runaway Grand Jury highlighted by the New York Times in 1921 for issuing subpoenas for the mayor's records), the city had failed to maintain several forward thinking ventilation systems implemented by Almirall in 1910.

It was a shame that a large indoor pool was covered over and replaced by a gym floor,  showering facilities for almost two hundred were reduced to 16 and the entire 5,400 square foot was gutted and closed to the public for some 70 years.

It was a bigger shame that the world did not take notice of the buildings department shutdown of the renovation, the first time, and some 30 years prior to Brooklyn Heights, that anyone told Robert Moses NO. And, as an aside, no evidence has surfaced, either in Robert Caro's The Power Broker, or elsewhere,  that Robert Moses ever did another renovation after the shutdown of his renovation of Public Bath #7.

From its reopening in the 1940's to the 1970's, Public Bath #7 functioned as anything from a gym to a public shower, to a weights gym to a basketball court to a wartime function hall.

In the 70's, it went up for auction a couple of times. One buyer was thinking of putting a mattress manufacturing facility in the building.

At one point it was rented out to a nascent arts organization for a year for a $1.

Another arts group attempted to get an NEA grant for the facility.  Eventually, title went to a developer, Bart Rivecchio, and then, again, back into the hands of the person he bought it from, an old time Brooklyn character with a lot of character, Aaron Sukenik.

Eric Richmond bought it off of Aaron Sukenik who was paid off in a refinance.

Eventually Richmond refinanced debts on the Building with Madison Capital Realty on , who sold the note/mortgage to ??? on .

None of this is special, to this point.

The Smee
Roving art show - like a pirate on the seven seas, The Smee Art Show is always on the move.
The Smee says ... make it so. -

Art makes us what we are, and, when it is ignored, takes away a part of what we could be.

Most importantly, art is often, no matter the talent or effort or time to make the piece, far too expensive for most of us.

Artist have to eat and so do the buyers.

What is usually the answer is for the artist to eschew exposure to the masses until they have reached great acclaim.

That road to fame is almost always fatal to the earnings of the artist, and to the career of the artist as well.

Enter The Smee, an art exhibit intending to get the art into the hands of a wider audience before that artist has become so famous the average joe cannot afford their art.

Some artists may choose not to participate having looked deep into their soul and finding the process lacking.

Other artists will seize the day and enter The Smee.

Make it so.

lyceum on the rebound. - The Brooklyn Lyceum is fighting the fights it must. When the dust settles it would be nice to hit the swamp running.
When the Brooklyn Lyceum dust settles ... -

Gowanagus will be at the ready for programming, be it theater, music, debate, classes or dance.

To that end we are lining up productions we will produce, about 20%, and seeking submissions for production from others.

Salmon P. Chase said : 'Without jurisdiction the court cannot proceed at all in any cause. Jurisdiction is power to declare the law, and when it ceases to exist, the only function remaining to the court is that of announcing the fact and dismissing the cause. And this is not less clear upon authority than upon principle.'
If the plaintiff fails to take proceedings for the entry of judgment within one year after the default, the court shall not enter judgment but shall dismiss the complaint as abandoned, without costs, upon its own initiative or on motion, unless sufficient cause is shown why the complaint should not be dismissed.'

'Tis strange, — but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction. - according to SCOTUS Judge Sandra Day O'Connor
No man in this country is so high that he is above the law. No officer of the law may set that law at defiance with impunity. All the officers of the government, from the highest to the lowest, are creatures of the law and are bound to obey it.
