THIS WEEK UVA really wants to fix our troubled democracy. In fact, the university is “uniquely positioned” to do so, said Provost Liz Magill as she introduced a panel event this week (p. 17). The school has a half-dozen institutes dedicated to the study of democracy; if you missed this round of bigwigs blathering on about our floundering national institutions, don’t worry, there’s sure to be another similar event soon. Meanwhile, on the Lawn, the university is making students cut the edges off of their flyers to fit onto designated message board (p. 17)—a patronizing exercise if ever there was one. And student activists continue to ask questions about safety, policing, and race on Grounds, without getting the answers they feel they deserve (p. 19). In town, kids are taking to the streets, urging their representatives to address climate change swiftly and aggressively (p. 13). I don’t know where we go from here. I don’t know what to do about an electoral college system that’s handed victory to the candidate with fewer votes in two of the last six presidential elections. I don’t know how to fix a Supreme Court that’s been transformed from a check on legislative power into a conservative policy-making machine. I don’t know how to confront climate change. But as I search for answers, I find I’m most interested to hear what the young people have to say.—Ben Hitchcock

Call to action

IN BRIEF Fraternity brothers indicted Eleven VCU fraternity brothers have been indicted in connection with the death of Adam Oakes, a 19-year-old VCU student who died from alcohol poisoning after a fraternity initiation ritual in February. All 11 have been charged with misdemeanor hazing and three have been charged with counts of giving alcohol to a minor. Oakes’ death sparked a campus-wide review of Greek life at VCU, and resulted in the expulsion of Delta Chi from campus. His family members say they’d like to see the Virginia General Assembly consider legislation to make hazing a felony.

Young climate activists held a strike at the Free Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall last week.

School reconfiguration moves ahead COURTESY CITY OF CHARLOTTESVILLE

Charlottesville is listening to offers from anyone who wants to acquire its statues of Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the city announced last week. The statues are currently “disassembled” and tucked away on city property. The deadline for acquisition proposals is October 15. City Council will then vote on whether any of the offers will be accepted.

“The schools are going through really extensive renovations, but so far in those conversations we haven’t really seen anything about making the project green,” said Campbell. “It really is a big opportunity to take steps towards fighting climate change in our city.” Carrying a variety of colorful, homemade signs, the young protesters took turns leading chants calling for clean energy and green transit, while parents and community members joined in. Campbell passed around a petition for participants to sign to show their support for the strike’s demands. “We really want to show the City Council that we’re listening, we’re watching, and we need them to act now,” said Campbell.

On Thursday, the Charlottesville School Board formally voted to request that the city set aside $75 million for a public school reconfiguration project that will see fifth graders stay at elementary schools and sixth graders head to Buford. The vote is a major step forward for a project that’s been in the works for a decade. The majority of the reconfiguration’s price tag would go toward renovating Buford. Local architecture firm VMDO has been tasked with leading the project, and has released a variety of preliminary renderings of what the new Buford could look like. City Council will discuss the next steps at Monday’s meeting.

ered bus stop shelters, electrifying its bus fleet, and increasing housing density. “The bus system is not reliable. It only comes once an hour, and it’s not green,” said Campbell. “In Charlottesville, there’s a real focus on getting individual people to take action on climate change...but we really need to have a focus on transit and making sure our solutions to the climate crisis are equitable.” Campbell, who founded Charlottesville Youth Climate Strike in 2019, also demanded that city schools fund green infrastructure, like solar panels, and work toward carbon neutrality, especially as plans to renovate Buford Middle and Walker Upper Elementary schools move forward.

@cville_weekly

Two years ago, Charlottesville City Council committed to cutting the city’s greenhouse gas emissions nearly in half by 2030, and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Yet to many local climate activists, the city has done very little so far to meet these goals. To push the city government to take immediate, concrete action against climate change, teen activist Gudrun Campbell led a youth climate strike at the Free Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall last week. Joined by around two dozen students of all ages, Campbell, a freshman at Charlottesville High School, called on the city to invest in its transit system and reduce reliance on single-occupancy vehicles, specifically by increasing bus service, building more cov-

Virginia’s train revolution is chugging down the tracks. Over the weekend, Governor Ralph Northam and a handful of other officials boarded the new early-morning Richmondto-D.C. Amtrak, which leaves the state capitol at 5:35am and arrives in Washington at 8:22am. Work is currently underway on a $3.7 billion plan to improve the train system throughout the state, including in central Virginia, though local service expansion is still a long way off.

T

Wealth of opinions

$729,000

Certain homeowners don’t want apartments in their expensive neighborhoods. This month, the owners of the city’s most extravagant properties coordinated an email campaign opposing new housing density.

$330,000

Median home value in Charlottesville

Median home value of the 150 people who emailed the Planning Commission opposing upzoning

The city should also “allow small commercial uses, such as corner stores, throughout the city,” the letter argues. “If we want walkable, bikeable, vibrant, human-scale neighborhoods, that will require retail services in every neighborhood.” Stolzenburg used the same method to create a general profile for the Livable Cville emailers. Just 88 were confirmed homeowners; Stolzenburg says that “most of the others are likely renters—many explicitly said so, while the others don’t appear in city property records.” The large proportion of renters who wrote to support the Livable Cville email already means the campaign is more economically representative of the city than the group who sent anti-upzoning emails.

Among the homeowners who participated in the Livable Cville campaign, the median home value is $370,000—not too far from the median home value in the city. Half of the homeowners who wrote to support increased density own homes in the bottom 40 percent of value in the city. The stark differences between the economic status of the two cohorts is “startling,” Stolzenburg wrote to his fellow planning commissioners on September 12. “It is our job as policymakers to make policy on behalf of all citizens, and therefore it is important to know who we are hearing from, and how they represent or do not represent the citizenry at large… That is what I’ve endeavored to provide with this analysis.”

PVCC IS HIRING!

September 29 – October 5, 2021 c-ville.com

wo distinct factions have emerged in the heated discussion around Charlottesville’s zoning laws. Some city residents say the latest proposed land use map goes too far, and that the construction of apartment buildings and shops would have deleterious effects on what are currently single-family neighborhoods. Others say the map doesn’t do enough to open up exclusive neighborhoods for new development. New data compiled by Planning Commissioner Rory Stolzenburg offers a clear illustration of who’s advocating for what at this point in the process. Letters asking the Planning Commission not to allow more dense housing in singlefamily neighborhoods almost all came from the owners of Charlottesville’s most expensive homes. Meanwhile, a campaign asking the map to allow for “a range of housing types accessible across income levels” came from homeowners who own homes of more representative value, including a large proportion of renters. The latest draft of the land use map was released on August 30, ahead of a Planning Commission meeting on August 31. Between September 5 and September 14, Stolzenburg’s data shows that the Planning Commission received 150 emails from people who wanted the land use planning process to slow down, because they oppose what they see as “blanket up-zoning.” More than 100 of those people submitted a form letter. “I support the stated objective of providing affordable housing,” the form letter reads, “but do not believe that the extensive changes these documents would make to our neighborhoods would have a significant impact on affordability.” The emailers say that allowing for increased housing density in certain areas

“would destroy much in our city that makes it a unique and special place to live,” and are concerned that the adoption of the plan would lead to “wholesale changes to the content and character of neighborhoods throughout the city.” Using Charlottesville’s public Geographic Information System, which catalogs the names of property owners in the city and lists the assessed value of every property, Stolzenburg was able to match each emailer with the value of the home they own. The median value of a home in Charlottes­ ville is $330,000. The median value of the homes owned by anti-upzoning email writers is $729,000. The vast majority of these anti-upzoning emails—80 percent—came from people who own homes in the top 20 percent of value in the city—homes valued above half a million dollars. And 20 percent of the anti-upzoning emails came from people who own homes valued at $1.1 million or more. Thirty-five percent of Charlottesville residents are renters, but the 150 anti-upzoning emailers included 144 homeowners. Sixty-nine of those 150 emailers live in the tony Barracks/Rugby neighborhood, and another 20 live in North Downtown. On the other side, Stolzenburg also received 151 emails between September 5 and September 10 advocating for even greater density than the most recent version of the land use map would allow. More than 100 of those emailers submitted a form letter written by a group called Livable Cville. The Livable Cville writers ask that the planning commission allow 3.5-story buildings, four-unit dwellings, townhouses, and rowhouses through almost all of the city. “This will help ensure it is spatially and financially feasible for affordable multi-family homes to be built,” the letter reads.

Tom Perez, Barack Obama’s secretary of labor and the chair of the Democratic National Committee, pushed against the idea that government and business interests were at odds with one another. “When we move away from the false choice dynamic, we can really improve our democracy,” Perez said. “As long as we live in a world of false choices, it’ll be harder to solve civil rights challenges, income inequality, and climate challenges.” Robert Bruner, moderator and dean emeritus of the Darden School of Business, said that government should begin at the “ground level,” adding that “success begins with an understanding of the customer. Democracy is messy and capitalism can be turbulent, but each delivers profound benefits to society.”

Riggleman said that after working in Congress, he gained “a new appreciation for how government and markets can work together.” “I’m also always going to err on the side of the companies and what they have to endure,” the former Republican legislator continued. Carolyn Miles, former president and CEO of Save the Children and current special advisor and executive fellow at Darden, said she sees hope in Darden students who demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and environmental, social, and governance initiatives. Darden professor R. Edward Freeman said that it’s possible to create a system that allows businesses to be both sustainable and successful, but that the country’s policymakers have to “see the need to do it.”

“As long as we live in a world of false choices, it’ll be harder to solve civil rights challenges, income inequality, and climate challenges.” FORMER LABOR SECRETARY TOM PEREZ

“I think without freedom of speech and open inquiry, you just can’t have a functioning university,” says Emma Camp, a UVA student who lives on the Lawn. The doors of UVA’s Lawn rooms have become the latest stage for campus free-speech debates. Last year, a student hung a floor-to-ceiling “Fuck UVA” sign on her Lawn room door. That prompted the university to pass new regulations limiting the size of what students are allowed to display on the hallowed Lawn. This week, Camp hung a poster criticizing the poster regulations, and the school’s facilities management team took it down. The new rules require all signage to be affixed to two message boards on the Lawn doors. Some of the boards are less than 8.5 inches wide, making it impossible to hang a regular sheet of paper. Noah Strike hung an advertisement for a Planned Parenthood volunteer opportunity on his door last week. Soon after, facilities management asked him to either remove the poster or trim it to fit his 7-inch message board. Strike cut the edge off the paper and hung it back up. “It was very confrontational,” he says. “We got a knock on the door and they told us we had to take stuff down, and they refused to leave until we did.” Camp knew she was breaking the rules when she affixed a large sign with the full text of the First Amendment on her door on September 17. But she felt it was important to point out the hypocrisy of the new policy. “When students use freedom of expression in a way they don’t like, the reaction is to limit speech,” she says. “And to me that’s deeply hypocritical.”—Amelia Delphos

UVA students lambaste Lawn poster regulations

September 29 – October 5, 2021 c-ville.com

ired of government regulations standing in the way of his wife’s whiskey distillery, Denver Riggleman decided to enter “the belly of the beast” and run for public office. Riggleman hoped to help understand the rule-making processes and regulations that affect small businesses. “We need people who understand how that dance happens,” he said at UVA’s Democracy Biennial conference over the weekend. Riggleman was one of a dozen panel participants at the opening event of UVA’s Miller Center of Public Affairs’ two-day conference. UVA has invested a lot in the study of democracy: The school hosts The Miller Center of Public Affairs, the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, the Center for Politics, the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, the Democracy Initiative in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Karsh Center for Law and Democracy, and, most recently, the $50 million Karsh Institute for Democracy. Friday’s panel was entitled Democracy and Capitalism. The event featured five CEOs, two UVA professors, two former presidential cabinet members, the mayor of Champaign, Illinois, the leader of a Chicagobased Muslim charity, and Riggleman. University Provost Liz McGill introduced the roundtable event, proclaiming that the University of Virginia is “uniquely positioned” to be a leader in combating disinformation and repairing our fractured democracy. Panelists were asked to share their thoughts on whether democracy in practice could live up to its rhetorical aspirations.

Unwelcome Student activists don’t want UVA police in their spaces By Brielle Entzminger reporter@c-ville.com

JOHN ROBINSON

T

Sarandon Elliott, chair of the Young Democratic Socialists of America at UVA, wants university police to stay out of the Multicultural Student Center and other spaces intended for marginalized students.

and Community Engagement Specialist Dani Lawson—who are both Black women—have sought out a meeting with her, both at a student activity fair and by coming to the MSC in person. Students say other officers, including Longo, have also visited the MSC and LSC in plain clothes. Lawson and Hawkins declined to speak with C-VILLE, but sent a statement defending their attempts to meet with student organizers. “University Police regularly engage with students...in order to hear their points of view on public safety issues and discuss the UPD’s efforts to maintain a safe and welcoming community on Grounds,” they wrote. “Those conversations are an essential part of developing and maintaining trust between [UPD] and the community.” “While many individuals hold different points of view, we respect everyone’s apprehensions and willingness to work with UPD,” the officers concluded.

Lawson told The Cavalier Daily that she and Hawkins did not ask to speak specifically with Elliott, and that they talked to every student group at the fair. Elliott says she never got a direct response to her letter. The disagreement once again reveals the depth of the rift between UVA’s minority students and the institution’s administration. In 2006, the school arrested 17 activists after they conducted a sit-in in the president’s office to advocate for a living wage for school employees. In 2017, three student activists were also arrested for holding up a banner that read “200 years of white supremacy” at a UVA event. More recently, an article in The Intercept sparked a new round of scrutiny of Longo. While he ran the city’s police force, Longo conducted a DNA program in which his officers stopped Black men on the street at random and swabbed their cheeks to see if their DNA matched that of a serial rapist who was on the lam.

Music for the Eyes

September 29 – October 5, 2021 c-ville.com

his summer, UVA fourth-year Sarandon Elliott received a call from an unknown number. When she listened to the voicemail later that day, Elliott was shocked to learn who had called her: the University Police Department. “I just had a few questions in reference to the [Young Democratic Socialists of America] and was hoping you might be able to answer them for me,” said the officer in the voicemail, identifying himself as Lieutenant Michael Blakey. “Please give me a call back.” Since then, Elliott, co-chair of YDSA’s National Coordinating Committee, claims that UPD has tried to contact and question her several times, even after she told them she does not feel comfortable speaking with police. UPD employees have also come into the Multicultural Student Center and Latinx Student Center, and asked to set up meetings with her and other student organizers, she says. Earlier this month, Elliott detailed her experiences in an open letter to UVA President Jim Ryan, UPD Chief Tim Longo, and the university community, demanding that the department stop “entering and occupying” spaces that are set aside for Black and brown students. UVA’s Multicultural Student Center “aim[s] to facilitate a student-centered, collaborative space that supports underrepresented and marginalized communities, while cultivating the holistic empowerment of all students,” according to its website. “I am not publishing this to the university because I am scared—I am writing this because I am furious,” wrote Elliott. “I am Black, working-class, Queer, and a Socialist. Do you know how many people have lost their lives to police violence because they identify with one or more of these identities?” According to Elliott, UPD’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Manager Cortney Hawkins

Now, student activists want nothing to do with the police, says Elliott, no ifs, ands, or buts. “[UPD] is masking it as a good faith attempt to build bridges with student organizers and find out what students want,” she says. “But myself and several other organizers have been pretty clear we have [an] abolitionist mindset.” YDSA member Ceci Cain says she was in the Multicultural Student Center when Hawkins and Lawson came in one day, and that she spoke with them for an hour. The UPD employees asked Cain to set up a meeting with student leaders—including Elliott— and inquired about her issues with UPD and Longo. “It was mostly [Hawkins] talking,” says Cain. “She definitely gaslit me and defended Tim Longo throughout it.” “At its core, it is a surveillance tactic to have community engagement strategies, for them to be close with students, and know who is doing what organizing,” Cain says. “[UPD] is scared of what students like Sarandon represent, which is real student power, and students with leftist philosophies getting organized.” If the current models of policing are unsalvageable, what does safety and security look like to these students? Moving forward, Elliott and Cain hope that UPD will stop coming into the MSC, LSC, and other spaces intended for marginalized students. The organizers also want the university to take YDSA and other organizations’ demands to defund UPD and fire Longo seriously. And they call on more students to take action and get involved in organizations like YDSA, that work toward abolishing UPD. In her letter, Elliott addressed the officers directly. “The day you decided to be a part of an industry rooted in white supremacy and criminalization of the multiracial working class,” she wrote, “was the day you decided your presence in those spaces were not only not welcomed but made everyone around you uncomfortable and unsafe.”

Whose Monticello? New book launches local writer onto national scene By Lisa Provence

C

JACK LOONEY

Locals will recognize many details in Johnson’s stories, including Monticello, where First Street residents flee to escape violent white supremacists.

many hundreds of species have been lost or consumed within the last twenty-four hours.” “I have crazy to-do lists,” chuckles Johnson. “I have to make side lists and then I put post-its on that.” It seemed natural to her to make a list when buying a house. “And your anxieties creep into that list and then your desires creep in.” UVA English professor Lisa Woolfork is teaching My Monticello in a graduate class on contemporary African American literature this semester. “Jocelyn’s writing is dynamic yet precise, affirming as much as it disrupts,” says Woolfork. “I especially appreciate the local context that she shapes with such a deep imaginative complexity. And even as her work has a strong local connection, there are ways that her stories illustrate meaningful, if difficult, truths that resonate far beyond Charlottesville.”

@cville_weekly facebook.com/cville.weekly

Jocelyn Nicole Johnson’s My Monticello has been named one of Esquire magazine’s best books of fall 2021.

Esquire named My Monticello to its best books of fall 2021, and calls Johnson “an electric new literary voice” and “an emerging master of the short story form.” (Esquire also adds another Charlottes­ villian’s work to that list: Lincoln Michel’s The Body Scout.) My Monticello made Time magazine and Chicago Tribune lists, and it’s still early in the bestbooks season. The day before Johnson spoke with C-VILLE, she was nominated for the Kirkus Prize, where she finds herself in competition with Colson Whitehead’s new book, Harlem Shuffle. And LeVar Burton and Aja Naomi King will narrate the audiobook of My Monticello. “Let’s just say it’s exceeding my expectations,” says Johnson. Her current agent—her third—”really loves short stories,” which Johnson says is rare in the publishing world, where the novel “is considered the gold standard.” Johnson decided to make her collection of stories about Virginia, and “got a ton of interest.” She ended up with a two-book deal with Henry Holt/Macmillan, which “made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.” Says Johnson, “It’s been this really long, long journey. I turned 50 this year. I think it’s kind of funny I’m going to be this debutante.” But she seems to have known all along she’d be a writer. A photo of her as a child on a card is captioned, “This is the author. She was 7 when she made this.” Laughs Johnson, “I especially like that I wrote it in the third person.” Her book tour will be mostly virtual, with local events at The Haven and Monticello, the latter of which of course figures prominently in the novella. Perhaps Monticello will carry her book— disruptive, challenging, and unusual as it is—in its gift shop? Says Johnson, “That’s my goal.” New Dominion Bookshop and WriterHouse will host an in-person launch of My Monticello October 8 at 7pm at The Haven.

EZE AMOS

harlottesville writer Jocelyn Nicole Johnson’s first book is getting a lot of buzz. She’s earned accolades from acclaimed authors, like Colson Whitehead, who called My Monticello “a badass debut by any measure—nimble, knowing, and electrifying.” It’s a Kirkus Prize finalist, and a Netflix adaptation is already in the works. “It’s great and a little crazy,” says Johnson, whose book of five short stories and a novella comes out October 5. Although Johnson taught art in local schools during the 20 years she’s lived in Charlottesville and says teaching “is a love of mine,” this is not her first time putting pen to paper. “I’ve been writing for a really long time,” she says. “I’ve been down this road before” trying to get a work published. Locals will recognize many details in her stories. In the title novella, “My Monticello,” residents of First Street, which is around the corner from where Johnson lives, flee violent white supremacists by riding a JAUNT bus to Monticello. “That story absolutely was influenced by August 12,” says Johnson. The JAUNT bus is driven by Da’Naisha Love, a UVA student who is a descendant of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. “It’s a time of unraveling,” says Johnson. “The grid has gone down. There’s unspecified environmental trouble.” And armed white men cruise through the city in trucks, carrying burning torches and shouting “ours!” The scene recalls the summer of 2017, when the Ku Klux Klan came to Charlottesville and the deadly Unite the Right rally followed. “It was disturbing and really troubling,” says Johnson. After that summer, the city and the nation began discussing the history of race and racism in Charlottesville. During the 20th century, the city erected statues of Confederate generals, closed schools to avoid integration, and razed Vinegar Hill in the name of urban renewal. The period after the summer of 2017 “was a time of reflection for me,” Johnson says. The story “Control Negro,” published in The Best American Short Stories of 2018, contains an incident in which a black UVA student is handcuffed and bloodied on the Corner. It was “definitely a reaction” to Martese Johnson’s arrest by ABC officers in 2015, says Johnson. She calls it a “Frankenstein story about who gets to claim America, who gets to be safe here.” Seeing a UVA student “bullied” by ABC agents made her think, “That could be my kid or someone I knew.” Johnson sees connections between white supremacy and the environment. “I believe the identities we bring and how we treat others is absolutely connected to how we treat the environment,” she says. “I’m worried about all of it, honestly.” Her stories “think broadly about the idea of home,” she says. “Who gets to claim America economically, who gets to afford to be safe, and what’s going to be left to claim if we don’t take care of the Earth.” One of those stories, “Buying a House Ahead of the Apocalypse,” is written in the form of a list: “Check your credit score with that app on your phone when you bolt awake in the middle of the night.

The selection of prints, drawings, paintings, and photographs provide just the right backdrop, orienting us in the environment of these early 20th century cities. In several, artists use steam to convey the furious activity of the industry that built and sustained these great metropolises. Examples include Thomas Hart Benton’s “Construction,” Henry Reuterdahl’s “Commerce and Seapower,” Sears Gallagher’s “Manhattan Skyline,” and Samuel L. Margolies’ “Babylon.” The first modern art movement in America, Precisionism, which celebrated man-made objects and technologies, is well represented in the exhibition as well. You can see the cool hard-edged detachment characteristic of the Precisionist School in Clare Leighton’s “Breadline, New York,” Louis Lozowick’s “Above the City,” Zama Vanessa Helder’s “34th Street Skyline,” Jon Whitcomb’s “Urban Landscape” Howard Norton Cook’s “Chrysler

Building,” and Leo Rabkin’s “Untitled (Spirit of Progress, Skyscrapers and liners).” With their velvety blacks and subtle light effects, Samuel Gottscho’s “Radiator Tower (at Night)” and Russ Marshall’s “Penobscot Noir” are gorgeous, lush photographic images that evoke a moody, brooding city. Don Walker’s “Downtown Detroit Enveloped in Fog” uses atmosphere conditions for dramatic effect, too. Other photographs provide more visual information about the buildings and their settings. Samuel Kravitt’s “Aerial View of the Empire State Building” and Ilse Bing’s “View of Lower Manhattan” give us a sense of what New York looked like and the scale of the skyscrapers in relation to their surroundings. The everyday objects on display reveal how skyscrapers functioned as icons. The buildings’ influence seeped into nearly every corner of American culture. Among the treasures on display are a flapper’s beaded purse with skyscraper motif, a number of children’s toys, from board games to building blocks, and a dazzling chrome weight and height scale and maple bookshelf that both ape the skyscraper form. A great deal of thought has been put into the exhibition design. Handsome banners of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and the Woolworth Building hang above the stairs in the foyer to greet visitors. The banners work with the steel gray color used on the walls to set the tone for the rooms. The pedestal for “Chrysler Building Souvenir Building” is cut to resemble the building’s shape, and vintage postcards of famous skyscrapers are positioned on an outline of the United States, helping visitors visualize where the buildings are located. Even the elevator doors and interior are sheathed in an intricate Art Deco motif, which also makes an appearance on one gallery wall. All this produces an ambience that replicates, with great élan, the cool elegance of the iconic structures themselves.

September 29– October 5, 2021 c-ville.com

kyscrapers, in our modern imagination, are glitzy glass needles. It wasn’t always that way. The nation’s first towers were ornate and detailed. Intrinsically American, the designs embodied the qualities we like to associate with our national image: We’re can-do, bold, strong, technologically advanced, and audacious. The Fralin Museum’s new show, “Skyscraper Gothic,” explores the history of these early skyscrapers. The curators, Lisa Reilly from UVA and Kevin Murphy from Vanderbilt, have brought together a wonderfully comprehensive assortment of prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, sculptures, furniture, textiles, toys, models, illustrations and decorative arts to showcase the prevalence of both the Gothic style and the skyscraper motif in contemporaneous culture. In the early 20th century, Gothic style was seen as enduring, with the authority of time and religion backing it up. The architects most certainly saw a connection between the lofty towers of the office buildings they were designing and the soaring quality of medieval cathedrals. They also must have felt a strong connection to the medieval builders who, like them, were engaged in engineering innovations, building their structures as high as possible, minimizing load on walls with flying buttresses and, in the case of the late Gothic, reducing masonry to the barest minimum to allow for large expanses of stained glass. At the same time, early skyscrapers were shaped by less idealistic forces, like municipal regulations: One of the signature features of the original skyscrapers is the step-like setback profile. Those setbacks were incorporated to conform to a 1916 New York City zoning ordinance requiring light and air to reach the sidewalks. This distinctive design element was absorbed into skyscraper iconography and widely replicated.

Several works in the show highlight the vital role of the construction workers who put the buildings together. The structures on which they toiled captured the public’s imagination, and so did the workers themselves. The metalworkers’ feats of strength and derring-do—balanced on girders hundreds of feet up—were the stuff of legend, embodying the distinct male energy and bravado of the skyscrapers themselves. Louis Lozowick’s “Above the City” and Harry Sternberg’s “Riveter” both position their subjects on girders at dizzying heights. In the latter, a red girder juts dramatically out toward the viewer, enhancing the tension and force within the composition. You can feel the effort the figure is expending with his machine. It’s a theatrical image, rendered in highly-keyed yellow, scarlet, and blue. The man’s face is obscured by the riveter, and he is positioned in a monumentalized fashion against the city—an everyman worker and symbol of masculine power. Charles Turzak’s “The Driller” captures the subject’s strength and determination. Jangled buildings in the background and a cartoonish halo of wobbly lines surrounding

As summer fades into fall, area food banks are looking for more ways to secure meals for Charlottesville’s neediest residents. Thankfully, local institutions are stepping up and finding creative ways to give back to the community. Piedmont Master Gardeners, an organization dedicated to empowering people with the knowledge and skills required to grow their own produce, wants to share the wealth and reduce food waste at the same time. By connecting gardeners with food banks that accept homegrown fruits and veggies, the Master Gardeners ensure bumper crops and excess produce don’t end up as compost. Ralph Morini, president of the organization, encourages home gardeners to plant an extra row at the start of the season, knowing that it will be put to good use. “It’s always satisfying to give what you grow,” he says. If you’re interested in donating your crop—or picking up some gardening tips—check out PMG’s website at piedmontmastergardeners.org. If you want to give back while having some fun, check out Meals on Wheels’ Restaurant BINGO. Purchase a bingo card for $10, then visit participating local restaurants throughout September to get a square filled in. The more restaurants you go to, the better your chance to win: Every line you complete counts as one entry into the raffle. Plus, you can double your chances by posting a selfie from each restaurant on social media. Prizes include a full week in a Chesapeake Bay cottage or four tickets to a show of your choice at the Jefferson, but the real prize is the satisfaction of giving. Sports fans, too, can get in on the action. The C’ville Buffalo Bills Backers Club is hosting a raffle in partnership with the Chris Long Foundation’s Waterboys. The foundation was created to help bring potable water to struggling communities in Kenya and Tanzania. Visit cvillebillsbackers.com

By Rob Brezsny

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio poet Anne Sexton wrote, “One has to get their own animal out of their own cage and not look for either an animal keeper or an unlocker.” That’s always expert advice, but it will be extra vital for you to heed in the coming weeks. The gorgeous semi-wild creature within you needs more room to run, more sights to see, more adventures to seek. For that to happen, it needs to spend more time outside of its cage. And you’re the best person to make sure that happens.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian composer Ludwig van Beethoven could be a marvelous friend. If someone he cared for was depressed or feeling lost, he would invite them to sit in his presence as he improvised music on the piano. There were no words, no advice—only emotionally stirring melodies. “He said everything to me,” one friend said about his gift. “And finally gave me consolation.” I invite you to draw inspiration from his example, Sagittarius. You’re at the peak of your powers to provide solace, comfort, and healing to allies who need such nurturing. Do it in whatever way is also a blessing for you.

Capricorn

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The bad news is that artist Debbie Wagner was diagnosed with two brain tumors in 2002. The good news is that surgery not only enabled her to survive, but enhanced her visual acuity. The great news is that on

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the English language, the words “naked” and “nude” have different connotations. Art critic Kenneth Clark noted that “naked” people depicted in painting and sculpture are “deprived of clothes,” and embarrassed as a result. Being “nude,” on the other hand, has “no uncomfortable overtone,” but indicates “a balanced, prosperous, and confident body.” I bring this to your attention because I believe you would benefit from experiencing extra nudity and no nakedness in the days ahead. If you choose to take on this assignment, please use it to upgrade your respect and reverence for your beauty. PS: Now is also a favorable time to express your core truths without inhibition or apology. I urge you to be your pure self in all of your glory.

most days since 2005, she has painted a new image of the sunrise. I invite you to dream up a ritual to celebrate your own victory over adversity, Aquarius. Is there a generous gesture or creative act you could do on a semi-regular basis to thank life for providing you with the help and power you needed?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): A self-described “anarchist witch” named Lars writes on his Tumblr blog, “I am a ghost from the 1750s, and my life is currently in the hands of a group of suburban 13-year-olds using a ouija board to ask me if Josh from homeroom has a crush on them.” He’s implying that a powerful supernatural character like himself is being summoned to do tasks that are not worthy of him. He wishes his divinatory talents were better used. Are there any resemblances between you and him, Pisces? Do you ever feel as if you’re not living up to your promise? That your gifts are not being fully employed? If so, I’m pleased to predict that you could fix this problem in the coming weeks and months. You will have extra energy and savvy to activate your full potential.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Blogger AnaSophia was asked, “What do you find attractive in a person?” I’ll reproduce her reply because it’s a good time to think about what your answer would be. I’m not implying you should be looking for a new lover. I’m interested in inspiring you to ruminate about what alliances you should cultivate during the coming months. Here’s what AnaSophia finds attractive: “strong desire but not neediness, passionate sensitivity, effortlessness, authenticity, innocence of perception, sense of humor, vulnerability and honesty, embodying one’s

subtleties and embracing one’s paradoxes, acting unconditionally and from the heart.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Taurus author Roberto Bolaño confessed, “Sometimes I want greatness, sometimes just its shadow.” I appreciate his honesty. I think what he says is true about most of us. Is there anyone who is always ready for the heavy responsibility of pursuing greatness? Doubtful. To be great, we must periodically go through phases when we recharge our energy and take a break from being nobly ambitious. What about you, dear Taurus? If I’m reading the omens correctly, you will benefit from a phase of reinvention and reinvigoration. During the next three weeks, you’ll be wise to hang out in the shadows of greatness.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): “Have fun, even if it’s not the same kind of fun everyone else is having,” wrote religious writer C. S. Lewis. That advice is 10 times more important right now than it usually is. For the sake of your body’s and soul’s health, you need to indulge in sprees of playful amusement and blithe delight and tension-relieving merriment. And all that good stuff will work its most potent magic if it stimulates pleasures that are unique to you—and not necessarily in line with others’ tastes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): “It is one thing to learn about the past,” wrote Cancerian journalist Kenneth Auchincloss. “It is another to wallow in it.” That’s stellar advice for you to incorporate in the coming weeks. After studying your astrological omens, I’m enthusiastic about you exploring the old days and old ways. I’m hoping that you will discover new

clues you’ve overlooked before and that this further information will inspire you to re-envision your life story. But as you conduct your explorations, it’s also crucial to avoid getting bogged down in sludgy emotions like regret or resentment. Be inspired by your history, not demoralized by it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Would you like to deepen and strengthen your capacity to concentrate? Cosmic rhythms will conspire in your favor if you work on this valuable skill in the coming weeks. You’ll be able to make more progress than would normally be possible. Here’s pertinent advice from author Harriet Griffey: “Whenever you feel like quitting, just do five more—five more minutes, five more exercises, five more pages—which will extend your focus.” Here’s another tip: Whenever you feel your concentration flagging, remember what it is you love about the task you’re doing. Ruminate about its benefits for you and others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What’s your favorite feeling? Here’s Virgo poet Mary Szybist’s answer to that question: hunger. She’s not speaking about the longing for food, but rather the longing for everything precious, interesting, and meaningful. She adores the mood of “not yet,” the experience of moving toward the desired thing. What would be your response to the question, Virgo? I’m guessing you may at times share Szybist’s perspective. But given the current astrological omens, your favorite feeling right now may be utter satisfaction— the gratifying sensation of getting what you’ve hungered for. I say, trust that intuition.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): At age 23, Capricorn-born Jeanne Antoinette Poisson became French King Louis XV’s favorite mistress. She was not born into aristocracy, but she wielded her Capricornian flair with supreme effectiveness. Ultimately, she achieved a noble title as well as high prestige and status in the French court. As is true for evolved Capricorns, her elevated role was well-deserved, not the result of vulgar social-climbing. She was a patron of architecture, porcelain artwork, and France’s top intellectuals. She ingratiated herself to the king’s wife, the queen, and served as an honored assistant. I propose we make her your role model for the next four weeks. May she inspire you to seek a boost in your importance and clout that’s accomplished with full integrity.

Q&A

41

What’s the best historical fiction book you’ve ever read? Hands down has to be The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I could taste the dust and feel the tug between hope and despair with every turn of the page.

Ditto Grapes of Wrath. The first book I ever truly loved, I was 15. Even 30 years later the descriptive visceral human experience sticks with me.

The Standards

Green Homes Sell for More

CAAR REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.CAAR.COM

BY CARLA HUCKABEE

There’s an otherwise nondescript home about to test how attractive green features are in today’s real estate market. The owner has taken steps to improve comfort and performance with an extensive remodel. A screened in porch and rustic steps capitalize on proximity to the park and river. Rain barrels capture runoff from the solar-paneled roof, and a compost bin stands guard near raised beds. With new windows, a blower door test, and LED lights, the home achieved silver status from Pearl Certification. Its location in a mixed-income neighborhood with front porches and a vibrant street takes a page right out of the New Urbanism textbook. Even in a seller’s market, and even though the home is under $300K, the asking price is well above the going rate on the street. But none of those other homes have the green features, nor a Pearl Certification. Current real estate statistics tell us this home will sell easily at the asking price. After all, the National Association of REALTORS® reports that 80+ percent

“In this area, our builders do a great job of incorporating energy efficiency into all of their new homes,” says Guthrie. “We really benefit from being on the cutting edge of the whole movement.”

of homebuyers prioritize environmental features. Heating and cooling costs are most important, followed by energyefficient windows, doors, and siding. Efficient lighting and ENERGY STAR® appliances rounded out the top tier. The home’s Pearl Certification should also improve the owner’s chance of selling at a higher price in fewer days on market. But it all hinges on owners and REALTORS® marketing the green features, buyer preferences, and appraisers who value the home appropriately. Fortunately, the Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS® (CAAR) is a leader in including green features as a searchable function. Michael Guthrie, Broker/CEO of Howard Hanna/Roy Wheeler Realty Co., and Greg Slater, Associate Broker with Nest Realty, were two leading proponents of that improvement. Guthrie says, “Our motivation was simple. We sought to make it easy for buyers to find what they want, while helping sellers capture the value they had invested in their homes. Frankly, most buyers, especially Millennials, expect there is some consideration for en-

HERS. EarthCraft. ENERGY STAR®. Passive House. LEED for Homes. Net Zero. The list of home energy performance standards keeps growing. Typically, the standards compare performance to the current building code, and represent a 20 to 100 percent improvement. As building science and technology advance, homes become more efficient, and standards are added. EarthCraft is customized specifically for the southeast, with our steamy summers and cool winters. Projects are certified by a third party through onsite inspections and pressure tests. Dominion Custom Homes is one of several area EarthCraft builders. A concept gaining traction is net-zero. Generating as much energy as they use, net-zero homes appeal to penny pinchers and environmentalists alike. Net-zero, or even net-positive, is likely to become the definitive standard before too long. Getting to net-zero requires keeping energy consumption low through systems that are as much as 100 percent more efficient than conventional homes. Builders orient the house to optimize the wind’s cooling and the sun’s warmth and light. They also use superior insulation and an airtight building shell, plus high efficiency systems and appliances. Add on-site energy generation to produce as much or more power than the household uses, and, voila, you’ve reached net-zero. These improvements come with a price. EarthCraft builders report an average increase of up to three percent in construction costs. Others may be as high as ten percent. Considering the life of the home, that investment can be recouped through substantially lower utility bills. The Department of Energy’s Zero Ready Home attempts to reduce the upfront costs by building a net-zero house without its own energy system. It includes all the super-efficient features of a net-zero home, to which the homeowner can later add solar panels or other energy source. The result is an incredibly efficient home with lower up-front costs. Chris Fuller, of The Housing Lab, is shooting for Zero Ready in a pocket neighborhood in Crozet. Having received zoning approval, Fuller expects to get Bamboo Grove’s site plan approval soon. “[Bamboo Grove] is pretty small, but it will have a rain garden for the parking area and the houses not built by Habitat are supposed to be net zero ready... if the builder can pull it off.” Because these standards are verified through third-party certification, trying to achieve an efficient home isn’t good enough. The proof lies in the final testing numbers.

Building It Right Researchers estimate that most United States houses last 40 to 75 years. With roughly 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions coming from household energy use, it’s worth getting it right with

homes or reap the benefits of increased efficiency for decades. “In this area, our builders do a great job of incorporating energy efficiency into all of their new homes,” says Guthrie. “We really benefit from being on the cutting edge of the whole movement.” Three area builders have also chosen to partner with Pearl Certification to register and verify energy efficiencies in their new construction. Hudson Signature Homes works mostly in Waynesboro and Augusta County. Bramante Homes is a custom builder in Charlottesville and the Shenandoah Valley. Southern Development Homes, based in Charlottesville, uses their EcoSmart program in conjunction with Pearl. Frank Ballif, President of Southern Development Homes, likens Pearl Certification to a credit score for your home. “This registry enables homeowners to make sure their home gets the most value for the green features we build into it. Our homes score Pearl standard gold, placing them in the top ten percent of homes nationwide. We’re really proud of that.”

Not Just for New Homes So how can a 40- or 75-year-old home, or that nondescript house coming on the market, compete with new construction? Therein lies the strength of Pearl Certification. Pearl also certifies existing homes. Established in Charlottesville in 2015, it now operates nationwide. It identifies, tests, and catalogs how various home features contribute to its energy performance. The home receives a rating that the homeowner can update as they make verified improvements. When the homeowner is ready to sell, the Pearl Certification details those assets in a clear and verifiable way to potential buyers. Emily Dooley, REALTOR® with Nest Realty, sees Pearl as a tremendous benefit to both buyers and sellers. She partners with Pearl to help her clients explore and, if appropriate, initiate the certification process. “This tool allows 100-year-old homes to compete with new construction. If you have any green features in your home at all, this is the best way to compare favorably in the real estate market. “And most importantly, Pearl provides a clear path forward. If you haven’t achieved the silver level, they’ll show you exactly what needs to be done. Same with gold and platinum. The next level might be as easy as changing out light bulbs or adding insulation.

“This works really well for homeowners who love the idea of energy-efficiency but think it’s unattainable. Pearl lays out a step-by-step action plan. When it comes time to sell, you’re way ahead of the competition. And even if you’re selling an older home, you can point out exactly how your house performs against any other home.” Homeowners are beginning to understand the power this provides. The data show that Pearl certification provides a solid return on investment. These homes not only sell for approximately five percent more than non-certified homes, but they also sell more quickly. It’s no wonder that participation is growing. Joseph Gentile, Vice President of Real Estate for Pearl Certification says, “Throughout Virginia, Pearl has certified over 4,500 homes and has helped more than 750 homeowners capture the value of their performance investments during the real estate transaction.” That’s more than three times the number of homes (nearly 1,200) certified just two years ago in the eight county CAAR footprint.

In the Know To capture the highest price upon sale, everyone needs to understand the value proposition that green features offer. Woody Fincham, President and Founder, Accurity Fincham & Associates, Inc., says “First of all, consumers

and agents need to be informed. That sets the stage to maximize the value of the investments an owner has made. “Together, the agent and homeowner should create an MLS listing that clearly identifies the green features, third-party certifications, and other performance ratings. Failing at this initial step can keep a seller from connecting with buyers searching for high performing homes.” For instance, a search for Charlottesville homes for sale under $300,000 with green features yielded three results. One listed lead-free paint, the second identified ENERGY STAR® certification, blown-in insulation, low VOC paints, and a programmable thermostat. The third listing just said yes without any other information, even though the home has solar panels. Clearly, the homeowner and agent for this home didn’t do a good job marketing their assets. “Once a home has an acceptable offer, a REALTOR® can, and in most cases should, add language in the sales contract requiring the lender to use a green building competent appraiser,” says Fincham. “Without proper training, many appraisers simply don’t know how to value solar systems and other green features. So, even if the buyer is willing to pay, they may not get sufficient financing if the value of the green features isn’t captured in the home appraisal.” Fincham has specific advice for homeowners with solar panels. “Put together a package with the system capacity in kW, installation date, whether they are leased or owned, and whether secured by a UCC-1 lien, actual or projected energy production, discounted cash flow, system warranties, and the panel manufacturer. “Armed with this level of detail, a qualified appraiser can give maximum value for a solar powered home. But they can’t help you if they don’t know about it.” Guthrie agrees. “Things are certainly getting better. REALTORS® are better informed. The National Association of REALTORS® and CAAR have plenty of training opportunities. These high-performing homes built a few years ago are

coming on the resell market for the first time. There shouldn’t be many transactions without at least having the conversation about a home’s energy efficiency.”

Today’s Market Even in today’s market, buyers want energy efficient homes. “The interest is still there, but the current hot market and lack of inventory may mean some buyers let go of their insistence on green features to just get a home, then come back and do energy-efficient upgrades later. Especially when a process like Pearl Certification can clearly identify the low hanging fruit and what steps to take first. “But for those homes on the market that come with green features, buyers will pay a premium. “There are lots of trends overshadowed by this seller’s market. As we return to a more balanced market, they’ll play out a little more strongly. Clearly heat pumps, different heating zones, and smart thermometers are here to stay. People are starting to move away from natural gas. Some buyers are giving a nod to a productive yard with gardens or native plants replacing an expanse of grass.” Not yet popular here are gray water systems such as a toilet tank-sink combo. Until water shortages like those plaguing the western states are felt here, low flow toilets, shower heads, and faucets may be as far as most Virginians progress. But a look at features that made their way into our homes during Covid—purified air appliances and indoor air quality sensors—shows that technology responds to new demands. “There seems to be an insatiable demand for energy efficient homes. It has been substantiated that if you do it right, your home will command a higher value in the market,” says Guthrie. “And it won’t be on the market very long.” Let’s see what happens with that nondescript Charlottesville home under $300,000. Carla Huckabee writes about high performing real estate.
