Free Art

St. Louis PaintingLike free stuff? Want to support an aspiring artist?

A few months ago Drawn highlighted Ali Spagnolas’ free painting project, and I followed up with a request for “St. Louis City”, suggesting something a little more vague than “dog” or “bunny”.

My request now completed, she’s going to send it, and I will promptly donate so she can continue her project. Fun stuff.

Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum

Missed opportunity: Julius Popp created a waterfall installation entitled Bit.Fall to output words formed by droplet streams, fed from news pulled from the Internet. It was hosted in the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis, and this short documentary touches on his motivations. I’m irritated I was unaware of this and some other interesting exhibitions it accompanied last fall.

Bit.Fall has since moved on, but I’m marking my calendar for the Summer exhibitions (May 11 – July 16) to check out Ansel Adams: Reverence for Life. His photography alone is always amazing, but they also plan to screen two short films worth viewing.

Rant: Every web-site with a calendar of events should also serve a syndication feed with event markup so I stop missing the interesting things in my city.

Sony Bravia finally released Paint, a highly anticipated follow-up advertisement to their bouncing Super-Balls. Make sure you download the high-res versions to do them justice.

Both are amazing works that must have been incredible to assemble. They apparently have so much fun making these (wouldn’t you?) they also offer a behind the scenes videos you can download to be extra jealous.

Oh, they’re commercials for color televisions. I suppose that’s important to someone (else).
