    Can Food be Art?

    New York, NY—“Pasta, however grateful to the palate, is an obsolete food,” Futurist leader Filippo Marinetti declared in 1931. “Its nutritive qualities are deceptive; it induces skepticism, sloth, and pessimism.” Despite generating considerable debate at the time, Marinetti, of course, lost his war against the Italian staple he claimed to despite photographic evidence that suggested his real feelings about the ...

    An Artist's High

    An Artist's High

    Have You Ever Taught an Earth Art Class?

    Have You Ever Taught an Earth Art Class?
    It seems so appropriate to write about the Squam Earth Art class I taught now that it’s fall. The weather changing day to day and the all vibrant colors. It’s like nature’s big hurrah. The class projects that came out of this idea were brilliant. Every one of them was just so stunning and well thought out. It was a wonderful ...

    Interview with Letha Wilson

    Interview with Letha Wilson
    Letha Wilson - Artist Statement My artwork investigates relationships between architecture and the natural landscape, and the navigation of both urban and wilderness spaces. I approach these issues using a range of media including sculpture, video, and photography.

    What Is Good Design?

    What Is Good Design?
    I've learned (the hard way) not to do it, but if random strangers - like taxi drivers, or whoever's sitting on the next airplane seat - ask what I do and I'm rash enough to confess to being a design critic, they invariably follow up with: "So what is good design?"

    London, UK—A rare life-size and life-time bronze cast, from 1961, of Alberto Giacometti’s L’Homme Qui Marche I, better known as “Walking Man,” improbably became the most expensive work of art ever to sell at auction today, selling for £65,001,250 ($104,327,006).

Pioneers like TAKI 183 first made their miniature markings on New York’s subway cars in the early 1970s; by the mid-1970s, writers were covering the exteriors ...
