FROM Ramiro Gomez
Ramiro Gomez Seeks to "Make the Invisible Visible" Walk into the Charlie James Gallery in Chinatown and you'll see a large painting of the Paul Smith store on Melrose Avenue. The vivid pink box of a building fills the canvas, except that out front there's an unexpected sight: a leaf blower. His face is not distinct but the figure appears to be a Latino gardener, one of thousands, who dot the landscapes of Los Angeles. The painting is by the 29-year-old artist Ramiro Gomez, whose work strives to bring to the foreground the laborers who make possible the comfortable, manicured lives of more affluent Angelenos.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
