The last finger of the iconic cliffs at Lucy Vincent Beach tumbled into the ocean Friday night, culminating a long but rapid erosion process at the famed Chilmark beach. One of the most photographed landmarks on the Island, the cliffs are also archaeologically significant.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year John I really miss you❄️☃️🎉❤️❤️❤️
While reading my latest copy of MV Magazine during my lunch hour, I came across the article "Piece of Work." I must admit a little girlie squeal left my lips when I found out the article is about Thomas Hart Benton. This acclaimed American artist had very strong ties with Missouri, the state I've called home since 1993. Benton was born and grew up in Neosho, Missouri and was the son of congressman M.E. Benton. His first art job was as a cartoonist for the Joplin American Newspaper. In 1935 he returned to Missouri to paint the Social History of Missouri murals that still adorn the House Lounge of the Capitol. He settled with his family in Kansas City. His home and studio are a state historic site preserved just the way he left them in 1975 on the day he died in his studio at age 85 while working on a painting. Throughout his career, Benton often returned to the Ozarks and his influence is spread and evident throughout the region. In 2003 the Newton County Tourism Council was formed and a plan developed to honor their native son with “The Thomas Hart Benton Festival” and “The Murals of Newton County and Southwest Missouri.” A locally- produced documentary was created to highlight how Mr. Benton was influenced by the Ozarks, and how he, in turn, influences the Ozarks. This one-of-a kind documentary provides a uniquely personal and local perspective on a beloved American Art icon. The documentary is called "Thomas Hart Benton From the Ozarks and Beyond." The Missouri Arts Council is where I've spent almost 8 years of my professional life. In celebration of the Missouri Arts Council’s 50th anniversary during 2015-16, the 2016 Missouri Arts Awards signature image is by our state’s most celebrated artist: Thomas Hart Benton. A star of the American Regionalist movement, Mr. Benton created fluid, radiant works depicting ordinary people as heroic in their common lives. His contribution to the arts as painter, designer, sculptor, writer, and teacher exemplifies the spirit of the Missouri Arts Awards. Moreover, the Missouri Arts Council has a personal link with Mr. Benton. In 1965, he used his celebrity status to make a successful appeal before a crucial legislative committee that proved a turning point in the drive to establish the Council as a funded state agency. It's very exciting to see that America's heartland has a strong connection with America's piece of paradise. Attached is the signature image for Missouri Arts Council's 50th Anniversary, 2016 Missouri Arts Awards poster.
