Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

This mural by DC muralist Aniekan Udofia was originally inspired by visiting DCAM co-curator/artist Bill Warrell's studio at the 926 N Street NW, during the planning of the city's Sun Ra festival. Quickly connecting over similar admiration for the performance artists Sun Ra and Erykah Badu, Udofia became inspired to create a mural that would pay homage to multiple generations of creative inspiration. Armed with pencils, which has become a signature of Udofia's work, Erykah strongly gazes directly at the viewer while the Artist Sun Ra, an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "cosmic philosophy," prolific output, and theatrical performances, floats behind her amongst the stars and planets.
