'Repro Japan' Exhibition On View At WCMA
12:20PM / Friday, December 10, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — "Repro Japan: Technologies of Popular Visual Culture," an exhibition that traces Japanese popular culture across place, time, and medium, is on view at the Williams College Museum of Art through March 20, 2022.   In Japan's Edo period (1603-1868), the growth of urban audiences and new popular entertainments combined with new printing technologies to produce new forms of popular art.

The Retired Investor: Holiday Spending Expected to Stay Strong
By Bill Schmick,
03:20PM / Thursday, December 09, 2021
Despite the recent scare caused by Omicron, the new novel coronavirus mutation, retailers are hoping consumers will continue spending in December 2021. I like that bet.   The National Retail Federation (NRF) is expecting a record holiday season totaling a take of between $843 billion and $859 billion in revenues throughout November 2021 and December 2021. That would be a record year for retailers such as Target, Walmart and Amazon.   Time is running out, however, given that we have less than three weeks to go until Christmas Day.   Remember, too, that the shopper began picking up gifts earlier than normal this year due to fears of continued supply chain shortages.

Underneath the name and address "a place to grow" is written. The children's hand prints were taken at the school and Neathawk then scanned them into her design programs to create the sign.
