BowieArt : The Scotsman : 03/29/02
BowieArt's patronage of students and graduates from Glascow School of Art was the subject of a lengthy lead article in The Scotsman last week. Well worth a read, it includes this from Professor Seona Reid, director of the school. "It's great that he puts his support behind young visual artists. He obviously hasn't forgotten how difficult it is when artists are just starting out."

Lyricist : San Francisco Chronicle : 03/08/02
San Francisco performer Jill Tracy won the top prize of $2,500 in a recent songwriting contest. She is quoted as saying: "literate lyrics are rare -- and scorned by major record labels -- in today's fast-food pop music market. "What's wrong with making a person think?" Tracy says. "I was inspired by songs growing up -- by Bowie, the Police -- that made me pull down the dictionary and look up a word. I loved that -- it really intrigued me about music."" (bonster)
