'Take 5 By TOM WALLER BIGOTRY " raised its ugly head during the sidewalk art show here last Monday. A black artist named Sidney Cothran and his white wife Nancy had their leather, wood and jewelry items on display on state Street when a mother and her young daughter passed by and noticed the Cothran's baby. "Mommy, look at that nigger baby," the girl said. The mother thought she was correcting her daughter when she said, "No, that's a darkle baby." MRS. COTHRAN, whose childhood was spent in Thor, a small town southeast of Humboldt, set them both straight by telling them "He's an American baby!" The Cothran's decided to come to the Algona art show because Mrs. Cothran knew of the community. They came the farthest of any of the 65 entries. They have traveled up to 300 miles to such shows. MR. COTHRAN, who was raised in Arkansas, holds a master's degree in art from the University of Iowa, and formerly taught at the Kansas City Institute of Art, said he left a construction job and moved to a newly - formed art colony at Garrison, la., (10miles from Vinton) because he was tired of working for someone else and wanted to try to support himself by selling his artwork. He said he enjoys painting most but that no one buys paintings unless they're of old barns or potted flowers. "We've lived in Garrison about a month and like it," he said. "The people are very friendly. The artists that have moved in have given the town new life. If s population is 421, counting us." THE BEST ANNUAL example of Garrison's rebirth as a community is a large art festival (June 11-13 this year). "The community expects 5,000 people this year," Mr. Cothran said. "They don't allow commercial displays, just wood-sculpturing, ceramics, boutiques, weaving, prints, jewelry . . :: things like that. They have pantomine sketches and three bands for en- entertainment and they have camping facilities." Another example of what art means to the town is a grant from an Iowa ane arts organization which is to be used for a theatre. THE COTHRAN child was not the only young art show participant who was subject to verbal abuse from an adult Monday. Mary Nash, 13, was seated by her third-place entry in the student classification~a two-tone blue peace symbol made of yarn and mounted on a print-stained display board - when an adult passerby questioned her. He asked if s h e knew what the symbol stood for, and she re- Plied peace, which of course is the way the symbol is being used today regardless of the valid or non-valid claims of its use in the past. THE "GENTLEMAN" 1 then delivered his point of view caustically and emotionally, all but calling .the gjrl a traitor, as one report has it. He was basing his appeal on the argument that the symbol was historically an anti-Christ symbol, which it may have been. (There's even a dispute as to which way the arms of the symbol should point, upward or downward, with each direction having a different connotation). Regardless of all that, the design is commonly used as a peace symbol in America and around the world today. Many right-wing publications have circulated printed material claiming the anti-Christ theory, however, trying to discredit the peace movement, -o- CHAMBER of Commerce Secretary BUI Steele, said he was personally pleased with the response to this year's Sidewalk Art Show, now through its ninth year. He said the improvement in number of entries must mean that satisfied participants not only come back, but they also encourage others to attend. He also said Algona is one of the few places that provide free parking for participants. Word of .mouth is apparently still a functional means of communication in art circles. Unfortunately, communications between art show goers and the participants are sometimes otherwise.
