Mike Byers | Art Houses For Orange County Weekly
February 14, 2011 Michael Byers
Levy Creative Management artist MICHAEL BYERS illustrates another great cover for Orange County Weekly. This piece was about how art houses are going out of business in Orange County. If they’re not going out of business then they’re in financial trouble of sorts. Mike says “I think it’s sad that this is the case because we have a wonderful independent theatre here in Guelph called the Bookshelf Cinema. Independent theatres are great. They play the movies that you’ve only heard are great but didn’t have a chance to see because the larger cineplex places don’t show them. Indy theatres also have in a lot of cases a membership system where a better rate is given to the members rather then the general public. I love my indy theatre.”
