first_imgArtThe Godfather of Rock ‘N’ Roll Poster Art on Giving Counter Culture Its LookIllustrator David Byrd helped create the visual aesthetic of late-’60sBy Mark Sitko – June 19, 2015899ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItAt the top of Forest Lawn Memorial Park there is a museum; the guard at the bottom of the hill will instruct you to keep to your left all the way up. This quaint and intimate art space nestled into the rolling hills that overlook Glendale has been curated by Joan Adan for the past decade. Revolutions 2: The Art of Music, the current exhibit which opened in February and runs through August 2, features illustrations, photographs and sculptures that were created for commercial use in the music industry. Many of the images on display, like the original Rolling Stones logo, have become mass produced icons that millions of music fans have held in their hands, printed on the packaging of their favorite albums. But here, at Revolutions 2, the original art can be observed in its proper medium and scale. Adan wanted to revisit the intersection of visual art and the music industry that she explored in the exhibit Revolutions ten years ago. ”It is iconic work and it is important work,” she says, excited to present these artists to the Los Angeles area.Illustrator David Byrd began designing posters for the Fillmore East when he first got out of college in the late 60’s and is still in the game. Adan is happy to see him continuing to interact with the music industry artistically. “David Byrd did the poster for Woodstock in 1969 and then he did a poster last year for a Crosby, Stills and Nash concert that was in Paso Robles.”Byrd got involved with Bill Graham and the Fillmore East in New York city back in 1967. As Byrd explains, “It’s kind of a shaggy dog story but when the Fillmore was preparing to open I already knew everyone. I had gone to college with everyone at the Fillmore East. So when Bill Graham said, ‘we need posters,’ they all said, ‘call David Byrd.’ I had never done a poster before so I was flying by the seat of my pants.”After opening the original Fillmore in San Francisco, Graham decided to open an East Coast venue under the same name in a Yiddish theater built in 1925.  “In those days it just had to look freaky. It didn’t matter. I mean, it just didn’t matter. That’s what I got from looking at the West Coast posters. I said, ‘well, you can’t even read it so it doesn’t seem to matter.’ So I just did whatever came to my mind.”Byrd moved to Los Angeles in 1981 to work with Van Halen. “Actually when I came out here I truly hated it because it is so horizontal and New York is so vertical. It was very disconcerting. I kept an open ticket for a year so that I could flight back at a moment’s notice.” He never left and after meeting his partner of 35 years, moved to Silver Lake and found a permanent home. “I was living in the wrong place and all that. Once you discover where you should be in L.A. everything is all right.”Eight prominent artists exhibited in Revolutions 2 have agreed to participate in a panel discussion entitled Record Breakers: Artists Who Revolutionized Visual Music Culture held at 2 p.m, Saturday. Join author and critic Shana Nys Dambrot as she moderates a panel which in addition to Byrd features award-winning artists Hugh Brown, Ernie Cefalu, Michael Doret, Mike Salisbury, William Stout, Charlie White III, and David Willardson.The discussion is free and open to the public.

first_img Montreal Exchange proposes rulebook reforms A collection of securities regulators are proposing amendments to their derivatives trade reporting rules that aim to establish public transparency requirements, and to harmonize with similar provisions proposed by other regulators. Regulators in Alberta, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, PEI and the territories on Tuesday published proposed amendments to their derivatives trade reporting rules that aim to harmonize with amendments published last year by the regulators in Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The comment period for the proposals issued Tuesday closes on April 17. Comments for the amendments proposed last year were due on Feb. 3. The British Columbia Securities Commission expects to publish its own version of the proposed amendments in the coming weeks. The proposals would establish requirements for trade repositories to publicly release transaction-level data “in order to improve price discovery while preserving the anonymity of counterparties,” the regulators say in a statement. The proposals would also ease reporting requirements for certain derivatives between affiliated end-users, among other revisions. The trade reporting rules are due to take effect on May 1 in the jurisdictions that proposed rule amendments today, with trade reporting obligations due to take effect on July 29, subject to ministerial approval and legislative amendments in certain jurisdictions. Currently, the reporting obligations for derivatives between affiliated entities and the requirements for the public dissemination of transaction-level data do not take effect until Jan. 1, 2017. The regulators indicate that they intend to work together with the CSA Derivatives Committee to review the comments on both sets of proposed amendments in order to adopt “harmonized amendments in all CSA jurisdictions.” They also note that their staffs anticipate making a decision on whether to recommend adoption of the proposed amendments before those provisions take effect.

Over the past 13 years, the Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister City Health Mission to Montego Bay has contributed more than US$450,000 in medical supplies to the Montego Bay community.Chairman of the Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister Cities Committee, Vin Martin, told JIS News that some 33,000 residents of Montego Bay and adjacent communities had received medical assistance from the health mission.He noted that members of the medical team comprise some of the finest physicians, nurses and volunteers. “Their dedication and commitment to the citizens of St. James and the surrounding parishes is exceptional. Not only do our volunteers give their services and their time, but they also pay all their travel and hotel expenses,” he pointed out.Atlanta’s Mayor, Shirley Franklin, commended the Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister City Committee for the great work it has done “to strengthen the ties that our respective cities and countries share.”She said that each year the health mission team comes together and gives selflessly to address the health care needs of the residents of Montego Bay.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The House of Representatives approved a Government guarantee for a loan of Euro 204.4 million from the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) to the National Road Operating and Construction Company Limited (NROCC) on Tuesday May 19.Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, who moved the resolution, explained that the guarantee had become necessary because of the volatility in the global exchange rate, which had exposed NROCC and by extension, the DBJ, to very significant exchange losses in respect of the 204 million EURO loan that was secured by the previous Government from Bandes, Venezuela, to fund the operations of NROCC.“These losses were further compounded by the fact that the proceeds of the Bandes loan were placed with the Bank of Jamaica in Jamaican dollar denominated deposits, in response to mounting exchange losses, which, in the 2007/08 fiscal year, had accumulated (to) some $4 billion,” Mr. Shaw said.“The DBJ, with the concurrence of the Ministry of Finance, entered into a cross-currency swap, through Citibank, which fixed the exchange rate on all future Bandes coupon payments at a rate of 1 Euro to US$1.52,” he added.Mr. Shaw further explained that Citibank has stipulated as a condition of the cross currency swap, that the Government guarantee the performance of DBJ’s obligations in relation to the credit conditions of the transaction.“The amount of this guarantee is at US$79 million, which represents the absolute worst case exposure. In other words, this amount is not an amount that is necessarily going to be spent. But the worst case scenario is that it will result in US$79 million exposure and in circumstances where both Euro and US dollar exchange rates and interest rates move against the DBJ position,” he said.He further stated that “it was important to note that this was a contingent guarantee, and would only be called upon in the most extreme of circumstances.”“The existence of this guarantee will also relieve the DBJ of the obligation to fund future margin collateral payments, which would have otherwise strained its financial resources,” Mr. Shaw noted.He further added that the guarantee will not affect the debt ratio of the Government.
