The Audacity, 2009
Please give our readers a little bit of information about yourself (upbringing, education, location, news, etc.):
I was born in Warrensburg, Missouri, a town about an hour east of Kansas City. As a kid it was surreal (more…)
In a recent thread, Joey B. mentioned the Paint Made Flesh exhibit in Nashville, TN, which, from what one gleans from the Frist’s offerings on the internet, looks to be a terrific show. Freud, Saville, Bacon, de Kooning, Guston, Baselitz, Currin, Daniel Richter, just to name a few. The post here is to encourage people who’ve seen the show (or have thoughts about the artists) to get some discussin’ accomplished.
Hey, I’m heading to Chicago next week, accompanying a student group. We’ve got a pretty full 4 days planned. It’s mostly kids from small towns; none of them have been to Chicago before. The Art Institute, the MCA, a couple of gallery neighborhoods, an architecture walking tour, maybe the Arts Club to see the Sigmar Polke exhibit. Plus just some downtime for the kids to wander, shop, eat, etc. But if anyone knows of anything awesome that might be under our radar, I’d be interested in hearing from you. Thanks.
And, thanks to an anonymous commenter, we’ve learned that Bonnie Sklarski has a new website. Romantic landscapes and 77-degree early March days, gotta love.
