I was thinking about this today, so here it is for you to think about, too: the legendary Milton Glaser's response to the infamous Wall Street Journal article “Just Where Does an Illustrator Draw the Line?” by Tunku Varadarajan. Steve Brodner is the illustrator who unwittingly triggered the wrath of Varadarajan––check out his illustrated response in Fig. 2, on the right.
Article by Barbara Rose in the Wall Street Journal about the career of Allan Kaprow, father of the Happenings movement. I think Rose is a bit out of touch with the current state of Happenings, though. She concludes with a comment on how they have become much more formalized, which is true in the arts world, but seems to have missed out on variations on the Happening such as Orange Alternative in Poland in the '80's, and the more recent flash mobs.
