What do the artists Charles White and Leonardo da Vinci (who were born 450 years apart) have in common? According to artist David Hammons —who curated the MoMa’s Charles White—Leonardo da Vinci exhibit—a lot more than we think. On Sunday evening, astrologer Alice Sparkly Kat and artist Cristy C. Road will discuss how art, creativity, and community are all threaded by tarot and astrology, inspired by Hammons’ insightful connections between White and da Vinci. Drinks, an artists-edition brochure, and a self-guided tour of the exhibit (which closes on January 3, 2018) are all free with admission! Tickets are $20 for the general public, and $18 for MoMa members. The drinks and intellectual conversation starts flowing at 7pm sharp!

    My mother is 91 years old and currently in Hospice. In emptying out her condo to get ready for sale, I have come across something I am hoping you would be interested.

    My mother was an astrologer for many years and had a number of regular clients. Back in, maybe, 1981 or so, she bought an astrology computer and printer to make her calculations easier.
    The computer is a Digicomp Research Corporation Astrology Minicomputer, Model DR-70, and the printer is a Digicomp 40 column printer, Model DR-70 P.

    I am wondering if you would be interested in these items as a donation to your astrology unit. I would be happy to pay for the shipping.

    If you have any questions, please contact me via e-mail or by phone, 513-532-2956. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    Thank you for your consideration.
