Why Van Gogh cut his ear: new clue | The Art Newspaper

Why Van Gogh cut his ear: new clue The Art Newspaper
Okay, here is another version of the classic Van Gogh "ear" theory. There are many therories on what actually happended.
Did he: cut it off and send it to a girl he was in love with. Did the painter, Gauguin slice it off in a duelling match. This week, I want you to be Van Gogh's P.R. guy and make up a publicity response in order to counteract any negative P.R. from the incedent. Your post must be 3 sentences long.
Have fun, Be creative.

Tiger Woods Spoof-Gone To Far???

This weeks blog involves and interesting article about art and free speech. I would like you to answer at least 3 of these questions based on the following link; FDA Investigates Fake 'Unfaithful' Tiger Woods Gatorade - Slashfood

Now that you have read the article and watched the video on the Gatorade incedent respond to at least 3 of these questions:
Do you think that the "artist" should be charged with any crime?
Do you think that this is a form of free speech?
Do you think that any form of art is ok as long as no one is injured?
Do you think that this would qualify as art?
Do you think that this is more of a publicity stunt for the artist to make a name for himself?
Do you think that Gatorade should have dropped Tiger from their advertising?
Do you think there was a better way to have presented this art?

If there were an opportunity to have an open art studio where a student could come in and work on a concentrated project or medium, would you be interested. This would be an advanced class and would be open to anyone that has taken the basic classes and wants more of a specific medium. There would be specific criteria in order for you to be able to qualify for this studio. ( no discipline problems, worked turned in on time, 95% or better in art area of concentration). What do you think? Do you think it would fly? What is a suggestion you would make to make the studio better?

MORE - Art in Unusual Places

This week's blog is another video similiar to last weeks. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WATCH! Then post a response that shows me that you did watch it. Mention one thing about the stop motion annimation video that someone else hasn't already mentioned. A friend sent me this link and I thought it was so-o-o cool that I just wanted you to see it. This is something that could easily be done with any computer and a little time. Here is the link:
Have fun watching. It repeats so it's really only about 3 or 4 minutes.
Have a great week.
