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.

Art in Unusual Places

This week's post is on original art. When I was in Europe this summer, I was able to view many various types of art forms. Some of the more interesting ones were those in unusual or interesting areas. I saw graffiti from Pompeii that was almost 2000 years old, art students creating the "old masters" on the streets of Florence and huge paintings on the sides of buildings in Paris. Watch the youtube video and comment on where you would like to do some unusual painting or artwork.

White House Art

This week you are to read the article from ART NEWSPAPER. COM and post a reply to what you think about the President and Mrs. Obama and their selection of artwork for the whitehouse and the offices. Do you think it's okay for them to " borrow" from art museums, or take the artwork on loan? Do you think that its unfortunate to "borrow" the art and put in such private places that very few individuals will ever see it? What benefits does this have for the artists?
