    Also known as the hedgeapple, the osage-orange fruit is a bumpy pale green ball with an outer skin made up of a numerous small drupes. Osage was introduced to the southeast via Oklahoma, before the era of readymade fencing, to establish hedgerow borders for cattle fields in the recently clear cut Ohio Valley. Since then, the plant has taken over as dense undergrowth in many forests throughout the region, producing a grapefruit-sized bright green fruit that seeds in the Fall. Contained inside these small pods is a milky latex fluid.

  20. A Stop in ParisThu, 30 Apr 2009 09:03:45 EST
    The Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative (CPI) will be premiering a new play on Tuesday, May 19 at the Fifth Third Theater at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. The play, A Stop in Paris, written by Kalman Kivkovich, is based on a true story that takes place in the early 70s and is autobiographical. I spoke with the playwright recently to ask him more about CPI, his own career and this play and his other works. Kalman is a very interesting man, born in Kazakhstan of Polish parents who escaped the holocaust by fleeing across the Russian border in 1939. This is the third of his plays that has been selected by CPI for a staged reading at the Aronoff. An architect by trade, Kalman came to the United States in 1973.

  22. Art Damage Defies 'Hip' - Offering True AlternativesMon, 02 Feb 2009 20:01:35 EST
    Art Damage isnt about being hip. It is about giving people the opportunity to maybe hear something theyve never heard before. Art Damage is about the music. There is no bar, no concession stand, merely the bands and the listeners in an intimate setting. It is perfect for eluding those other distractions, so that spectators can focus entirely on the musical experience.
