“Schomburg Center, Harlem, New York,” by Kadir Nelson

Kadir Nelson’s painting for the cover of this week’s issue celebrates the Schomburg Research Center, in Harlem. He says he wanted to create “a stylistic montage as an homage to the great Harlem Renaissance painters: Aaron Douglas, William H. Johnson, Norman Lewis, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, Archibald Motley, and Palmer Hayden.” Also on Nelson’s mind were artists and performers like the Nicholas Brothers, Billie Holiday, and Duke Ellington; the activist Malcolm X; and writers such as James Baldwin and Zora Neale Hurston. via:TheNewYorker

“I wanted to comment on the tragic rift that we’re witnessing,” Bob Staake “I lived in St. Louis for seventeen years before moving to Massachusetts, so watching the news right now breaks my heart.

” The voice in my mind nagged me all through October: “Get your flu shots.” An otherwise fairly responsible parent, I was for some reason late to the inoculation party this year, a tardiness for which I had no real excuse, especially amid the Dallas Ebola scare, which sent me and my wife to our iPhones for the latest news when we should have been paying closer attention to more mundane matters of family health. But the real-life Hollywood movie appeared to have been green-lit, filming as we watched: the government was bumbling, the Dallas hospital was ass-covering, guys in yellow suits were disinfecting doorways in the middle of the night, parents were pulling their children out of school, protocols were being breached, caution was abundant, and soon, surely, we’d all be fogging our safety goggles and duct-taping ourselves into homemade Hefty-bag hazmat suits to fight over potable water, probably even here in Oak “

Cover Story: “Putting together a cover like this is a little bit like cooking,” says Peter de Sève about his image, “Just a Pinch.” “Having the right ingredients is one thing, but knowing how much to put in is just as important. At first, I sketched a regular guy in the foreground spreading salt from a big bag, and the chef in the background adding ‘just a pinch.’ By the third sketch, it became clear to me that I didn’t need the other guy. With the right body language, the chef would say it all.”
