An outdoor sculpture garden in the mountains of Japan. What more could you want?

Submitted mostly without comment. Skip the Picasso. Go for the Moore.

Meeting at Leonardo’s “Ginevra de’ Benci”

Richard Danzig has some very interesting insights into technology and art. A Wednesday tour of the National Gallery of Art was just what the doctor ordered.

Stuttgart Art

1 Comment

Turns out that the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart is an amazing place. Just a bit off the beaten path and by the big giant construction hole, the museum has a vast collection of great stuff.

By far the highlight of this visit was the special installation of Manifesto by Julian Rosefeldt. I am not a big fan of video art installations, but this one grabbed me by the attention and did not let go. Go see it if you can.

The official trailer here does not do it justice at all

But that’s not all. The museum has an extensive collection of great stuff from obscure things that you wish you had seen before to things you’ve seen 100 times but not in real life yet.

Here is my set of things to remember seeing.

So, just go visit. You owe yourself that.

Neil and Kerry at Duvall’s

On an overcast hurricane day, we went to see a delightful collection of Neil and Kerry Stavely’s art in Millwood. Duvall Design in Millwood, VA is a great location for this kind of show. Artistic and artisan combined in perfect balance.
