STAN WOODARD FOR PRESIDENT 2012
EXPLORATORY COMMITTEE MEETING
NOVEMBER 13, 2010 A PSYCHIC FANTASY ON THE STATE OF THE NATION | STAN WOODARD FOR PRESIDENT 2012
IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES I SEE THAT MY SERVICES MAY AGAIN BE NEEDED. AT THIS TIME I, ALONG WITH MY ADVISERS, AM WORKING TO DETERMINE IF THIS IS INDEED TIME FOR ANOTHER RUN AT THE PRESIDENCY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. TO MORE FULLY UNDERSTAND THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE I HAVE UNDERTAKEN TO MEET THEM WHERE THEY LIVE THROUGH A SERIES OF PUBLIC APPEARANCE. I BELIEVE THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO GAUGE THE PUBLIC'S SENTIMENTS.

Atlanta’s Stan Woodard
posted by Savanah on Sep 14, '09
After you’ve set foot here for just a little while, you’ll understand the mystique about Georgia, and why Atlanta is one of the world’s most lovely cities. There is, of course, the Southern charm that is famous all over the world, but there are many hidden nooks and crannies here that reveal some of the more splendid things about the place. There is a vibrant cultural scene here, with fantastic opportunities to see new works of art in performance or in the local galleries. There is also an amazing music scene, with a very exciting night life. Add to this the multitude of attractions that will appeal to visitors of all ages, with sight-seeing tours, museums, amusement parks, a zoo and an aquarium. However you want to spend your time here, no doubt you’ll want to do it in luxury. Atlanta hotels can offer all this and more.
Our hotels are carefully selected for their consistent track records of excellence in service and hospitality. Style is a primary consideration here, because Southerners know that every detail matters, and the graceful little touches can add an unpredictable sparkle to any moment. No one can make a moment sparkle like an artist. Stan Woodard is a local artist who is making some fascinating work that speaks to the world, and from the heart of Atlanta. His medium is primarily installation, creating visually stunning scenes that involve sense and intellect working together to arrive at new meanings through the combination of objects and their placement.
Stan Woodard also uses found objects, and they retain a central position in his art works. Utilizing the things that are often discarded, and placing them in the limelight, is a very useful strategy to make statements about how we construct meaning. It also points out our own mechanism for interpretation, and makes it more slippery by undermining our own assumptions about reality. His work is very interesting and certainly very layered. It is also very funny, injecting a healthy dose of humor into a form that often takes itself too seriously. He is also a performer, and has done stand-up, as well as working regularly with the trip Chinese Frankenstein.

During the 1960s James Brown gained the titles “Godfather
of Soul” and the “Hardest Working Man in Show Business.”
Brown's sound reflected the nation's generational struggle, and his
influence reached across the Atlantic to Bamako, Mali, where his style
and music became a source of inspiration for the growing youth culture.
It was this vibrant culture that Malick Sidibé dynamically
captured through his photographs, leading Dr. Diawara to dub him the
“James Brown of photography.”
Presented in conjunction with Malick Sidibé: Photographs

November 18, 2007, Lower Level, Wieland Pavilion) and organized with Stan
