I am the president of BighouseArt.com, a nonprofit organization that promotes artwork created by prison inmates. I wanted to thank you for mentioning our organization in the Oct. 15 website article "Where to Buy Prison Art in the U.S. and Abroad" by Judith Fein [latimes.com /prisontravel]. Most people do not understand the caliber of artistic talent in our correctional institutions, so hopefully the article provided some insight into arts in the prison system.

Michael Asher, the groundbreaking L.A. conceptual artist and veteran CalArts teacher, died Sunday night after a long illness. He was 69. A teacher at CalArts since the early 1970s, Asher was famous in the classroom for his wit and candor -- and also his endurance. His marathon "crit" (critique) sessions, designed to review student work, could by his own account run from 10 a.m. to midnight. "I throw away the clock," he once told me. His own artwork is often described as institutional critique or engagement -- work that grows out of the particular conditions of a museum or gallery environment.

This art gallery cost about a billion dollars less to build than the new Getty. But for all of the Getty's sleek modernism, Jon Peterson's site for viewing art is even more cutting-edge. And to visit Peterson's gallery, there's no need to battle crowds, book reservations or board a tram. All one needs to view the work at this virtual gallery is a computer and a modem. "Every artist should have a chance to show their work," says Peterson, an abstract painter and creator of http://www.w3art.com.

If Happy Puppy is a lesson in how some people manage to make money on the Internet, Jon Peterson's World Wide Web site is a lesson in how the Web can pay in other ways, even as Peterson himself still hopes someday to profit. Peterson's site, w3art at http://w3art.com, brings together a variety of Los Angeles-based artists who wouldn't otherwise achieve this level of exposure. There are lots of art sites on the Net, but I was struck by the freshness and variety of the work here.

I was flabbergasted last month when I got notice that yet another cupcake shop - Georgetown Cupcake out of Washington, D.C. - would be joining the hordes already dispensing frosting-swirled little cakes within the 90210 ZIP Code. Isn't it a little late?  Sprinkles was the first to open in 2005 and actually has a 24-hour ATM-like dispenser on Little Santa Monica Boulevard where people line up at all hours to get their strawberry, chai latte or gluten-free red velvet at $3.50 a pop. Really, doesn't that kind of thing seem contra-indicated for anyone intent on flaunting their size 0?
