Issue 96 will be delivered to homes between June 5 and June 15
This issue of American Lifestyle magazine is all about the humanities: the study of how people process and document the human experience through subjects like literature, art, and music.
A great venue for humanities is the library, and the Kansas City Public Library has been a pioneering force in Missouri since opening in 1873. In addition to being a home for research, it strives to be a community meeting place where residents can have dialogues about civic issues, attend readings, and get help with both homework and careers.
Artist Nicolas V. Sanchez’s childhood was spent in small-town central Michigan, and it wasn’t until he moved to New York City for art school that he realized just how big the world is. He credits his upbringing for giving him the tools to navigate his career, like a strong work ethic and integrity. And he credits four-color ballpoint pens for his incredibly realistic portraits.
Violinist Bryson Andres takes pop music to the next level, creating opportunity and fame via YouTube and social media. This viral musician focuses mostly on reworking contemporary songs, using a looping technique to create each arrangement.
You can contribute to the subject of humanities right now by asking the person nearest to you a question. As always, it’s a pleasure to send you this magazine.
