Romare Bearden 2

Some images are clearly inspired by music/musicians/sound, others just look like sound (in my opinion). Enjoy!

Finding the Story Inside the Painting

For anyone who is not familiar with art, has never taken an art history class, or feels lost and out of place in an art gallery, this is the video for you! That’s my sales pitch to watch this TEDTalks lecture by Tracy Chevalier.

Chevalier’s process is a non-intimidating approach to art that doesn’t scare anyone away because s/he doesn’t have a degree in art! It’s simple: look at art and tell yourself a story about it. So go to museums and galleries and just LOOK! Then tell yourself a story, ask yourself questions, draw connections to your own experiences, and then maybe you’ll start thinking about how the artist created the piece, its historical context, whatever! It will just start to flow! No fear!
