The Art of OLIVIA FUNGHINI -Hoboken ART TOUR The Monroe Bar October 19th
Jersey City Artisit Olivia Funghini was born in Macau, China to a Portuguese father and a Chinese mother which makes her Macanese. Her passion to paint and draw evolved at a very young age with the influence of graffiti. ” I can remember using my mother’s coal eye pencil to draw on brown paper bags. I still use some of these materials today in my art work. In my painting entitled “Freedom” I used brown ripped up brown paper bags and markers to create the collage painting. I primarily paint with markers and feel as though they are an extension of my hand and I seek to combine explosive colors to produce what I consider bold, bright and daring. I see the world in intense colors and shapes and try to capture what I envision in my art.”

“LIVING PROOF” A film to see during National Breast Cancer Month-River View Observer
Bayonne’s Emmy Award wining actress Tammy Blanchard will appear with a star studded cast in the Lifetime Channel’s “Living Proof.” The film is being shown for Lifetime’s ‘Stop Breast Cancer for Life’ public service and advocacy campaign, during the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“Living Proof” is the true story of Dr. Dennis Slamon (played by Harry Connick, Jr.), who helped develop the breast cancer drug Herceptin. Dr. Slamon is a research doctor at UCLA Medical Center (Los Angeles), where he has developed the experimental drug Herceptin, which he believes will become a treatment for breast cancer. However, when the drug company stops funding for research, philanthropists, including Lilly Tartikoff (Angie Harmon) and Ronald Perelman help him continue tests of the drug. Dr. Slamon loses some patients involved in the tests, but ultimately his work with the drug changes the course of breast cancer treatment.
The cast includes: Harry Connick Jr., Amanda Bynes, Jennifer Coolidge, Angie Harmon, Regina King, Swoosie Kurtz, Bernadette Peters, Trudie Styler, Tammy Blanchard, John Benjamin Hickey, Paula Cale, Amy Madigan, Bruce McKinnon, Lance E. Nichols, Rhoda Griffis, William Ragsdale
