If you have followed the HBO series The Wire you have seen how the toughest American cities struggle to fight crime, drug addiction and spoiled politics. At the end of 2005, GALLERY M artist Jay Wolf Schlossberg-Cohen was selected as an Open Society Institute Fellow. This grant, created by George Soros and offered only in Baltimore or New York City, entitled Jay to dedicate his efforts in the arts to changing how urban life relates to art. His “social justice” programs entitle schools, communities and families to reclaim their communities, instill dialogue and spur creative thought when all seems lost. Details of his success are revealed in this Sept. 5 news story.
