You don't have to be an Attack on Titan fan to appreciate this.

I do have some issues with some statements regarding the statue. But it is a lovely find so I felt like sharing.

The exhibition's site:
Brooklyn Museum Exhibitions: Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition
June 27–August 10, 2008
2nd Floor

"Click! is a photography exhibition that invites Brooklyn Museum’s visitors, the online community, and the general public to participate in the exhibition process. Taking its inspiration from the critically acclaimed book The Wisdom of Crowds, in which New Yorker business and financial columnist James Surowiecki asserts that a diverse crowd is often wiser at making decisions than expert individuals, Click! explores whether Surowiecki’s premise can be applied to the visual arts—is a diverse crowd just as “wise” at evaluating art as the trained experts?"

Art or Not The Brooklyn Museum crowd-sources a photography exhibition.

A similar art experiment mentioned in the above article:
Most Wanted and Least Wanted Paintings
http://www.diaart.org/km/painting.html

I really wanted to talk about this article and exhibition when I first read it but was unable to. But I am bringing it to your attention now because it is still relevant and an interesting topic. And I was wondering about any of your opinions on the idea of art exhibitions being curated by the general public vs. curators, or anything else brought up by this post.

Art walks and festival
I’m kinda bummed that I missed the Art Walk before last because Greg Noll was there! Live and in person. One of the galleries was featuring his sculptures. I was a little excited that even though he was only there for the one night that his sculpture would bee there all month so I could still see them. But I never made it. When ever I could go, the gallery wasn’t open. It seems as though all galleries keep ridiculous hours.
At the last art walk The featured artist at one of the galleries was Duncan Regehr. I actually don’t like a fair share of his work but I love some of his crow pieces. Especially Corvus Rex V, but I couldn’t find it on his website to show you. http://www.duncanregehr.com/main.htm During that art walk that was pretty much all we looked at. We also went to the show at the library that featured local political celebrities. It turns out, much to my annoyance, that the idiot that writes that horrible feature column every week that no one likes, is actually a very talented photographer. The only other thing of note was while we were walking through one gallery to get to another there was a Scottish artist talking about his work and he explained that he liked painting here because it reminds him of Scotland.
The Art Festival was better than I expected. The main things I remember where the "Grandpa's Toys" booth that had a lot of stuff like we would have for Rendezvous and the guy that was selling the hair twirls. I have no idea what they are actually called. They are these twisted pieces of metal for holding your hair back. I love them. I was the guy's hair model more than once. He said I had mermaid hair. He was a really nice guy that talked to us for awhile. Frankly I was more excited about the giant oyster I got for breakfast the second day than most of the booths. We also went to one of the "Antiques" malls. I was very surprised to see an erotic novelties booth. But now I have heard of glow in the dark bubbles and I am very fascinated. There was also a oxygen bar booth. Some booths actually had antiques and I fell in love with a little metal antique piggy bank but managed to refrain from buying him.

Here we go another long-ass update. I figure since I haven't given a real update in over a month, so I thought I would honor you with one of my trade mark very long bullet style updates. It's really long but it's worth it. So get a snack, pull up a chair and Enjoy!

If you don't click it how will you know? )

Wow that was long.

On Saturday I was running around getting ready to leave. I said good bye to everyone. When I was at my aunt's I found out that she will be a tribal elder on her birthday. On top of my errands I also went to the pirate shop, where i would spend far too much of my money if given the opportunity. I also went to a couple galleries. I am very fond of the work of Mary Amarcillo (I am very sorry if i spelt her name wrong), especially her pastel cats, Nancy Tuttle, Horst Wolf, and Liz James. I have to say though that my new favorite artist is Destiny Schwartz. Her work is on display at Eye for Art Gallery. She works in multiple mediums. The first piece I saw was a table Entitled "Hey Diddle Diddle." I really loved it. Then I saw a group of miniature sculptures that I just fell in love with. They also just happened to be by her, as well as some fascinating prints. Mom said some of her work reminded her of mine. If only I was that good. I also finally got my sister's package sent off AGAIN. This thing has been to Texas, Brookings, Eugene, and back to Brookings again. This time it is going to Arizona and lets hope it stays there. I also tried Ben and Jerry's Black and Tan ice cream. OMG! It is delicious.
Sunday was spent sleeping in the car as mom drove, as always. She was freaking out because we lost and hour somewhere. So then we went to lunch and grocery shopping and then she left. I took another nap. I called her and asked what time it was because if the clock in the car was right my clock was wrong. Apparently when mom was cleaning the car she accidently pushed the a clock setting button and changed the hour. So she freaked out and didn't do the shopping she wanted for nothing and who knows if she will ever be able to make it up here again before I move.
Today was my first day of classes. I had 1. It was at 8:30 in the morning yay. It was Islamic art and architecture. I then went out an bought the books for the class because we have a huge assignment due on wed. Then I took another nap. Cause Its my first day back at work! yay! And they still haven't figured out how to do mail right yet. Come on people! On the plus side there was an thank you note from Annie in my in box and people seem to enjoy their little surprise presents from me. No one know its was me! Except of course the people that ask me and can read my signature.

On an unrelated side note Elton John is now 60.

Well back to the insanity.
