I can't wait to read this!

Rescuing da Vinci

The link goes to an article about a new book about the "Monuments Men" (which included some women, of course)... these are the people who helped recover art from Nazi strongholds after World War II. This book will make an excellent companion to the other two great books on the topic of Nazi-era art thefts, The Rape of Europa and The Lost Museum

For information on how Nazi-era art thefts affect museums today, including the Lauren Rogers Museum, click here

Christmas class!

Last week we had a holiday art class for kids aged 6-12, and they had some fun:

The kids got into the holiday spirit as they made gingerbread men, silly Santas, and artsy angels.

U B U W E B :: Film & Video

U B U W E B :: Film & Video

Artier and Weirder than YouTube: UBU's archive of film and video of and by some of the most important artists of the century. Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys, Kiki Smith, and dozens more. If you've got broadband and some spare time, this is the place to see video you'll never find at your local rental place. Richard Serra! Vito Acconci! Rachel Whiteread! Seriously, check this website out.
