The Monet exhibition will be in the Hamilton Building. It is named after Frederic C. Hamilton who headed the fundraising drive for the $110 million building. In 2014, he bequeathed 22 impressionist paintings to DAM, four of which are by Monet.

The building's odd shape is said to create equilibrium problems for some people.

A Cautionary Tale on Art, Censorship & Social Media

I’m one of those artists who’s been plugging away in the studio for the past thirty years. Part of the Art World’s middle tier, I am perpetually hovering on the edge of my “big break”, but I no longer hold my breath in wait for it. I have work in a few important collections, and a 25-page CV. I’ve won Arts Council grants in all the states I’ve lived in, I have a few nice exhibition catalogs, and have been in museum shows across the country and abroad. I hope to move up a few more rungs on the art world ladder before I die, but that’s far less important to me than consistently making work I am proud of.

Presently, all but the top 1% of artists are struggling. Several artist grants have dried up, and sales have declined, leaving creatives to expend more energy simply trying to make ends meet. So many middle-tier galleries have closed that a large number of artists like myself are managing our own careers full-time while making art. Social media has been a tremendous help in this area: I can create a new work, post it, get instant feedback, and often, within a few weeks or months, get offers to exhibit it. While a few hundred to a few thousand people might see my art “in real life” during the course of an exhibition, a strong, well-photographed image placed on social media can reach ten times as many eyes through multiple “shares”.

Reposting this as a reminder to anyone considering visiting Denver between October 21, 2019 and February 2, 2020, tickets for the Monet exhibit go on sale to the general public on June 25. As a member, I can "pre-purchase" tickets for the Monet exhibit for $22 for an adult. For non-members the exhibit is $27, and you will also have to purchase a general admission ticket for $10 (Colorado adult resident) to $13 (Out-of-state resident).

The Denver Art Museum will have an exhibition of 125 Claude Monet paintings from October 21, 2019 through February 2, 2020. This isn't meant to be be a replacement for the meetup earlier in October. Denver will be the only U.S. venue for the exhibit.

Japanese Artist Hand-Cuts Intricate Octopus From Single Sheet of Paper
Paper cutting art requires tremendous patience and a steady hand, and Japanese artist Masayo Fukuda has mastered the craft. Known as Kirie in Japanese (translated as “cut picture”), the traditional art form involves cutting intricate forms from a single sheet of white paper and then contrasting it against a black background to reveal the design. Fukuda has been practicing Kirie for 25 years and has recently revealed what she believes to be her best work of 2018—an incredible life-sized paper octopus.

At first glance, the beautiful artwork looks as though it was rendered using fine-tipped pens, but Fukuda carefully cut every detail from one sheet of paper. The elaborate depiction details the majestic sea animal’s rounded body, bulging eyes, and 8 long arms. Various textured sections look like pieces of delicate patterned lace, such arm suckers that resemble ornamental doilies and decorative swirling patterns on the head. The mesmerizing artwork celebrates the beauty of the fascinating species, who are known to change their skin color and texture within seconds to match their surroundings.

Thanks for sharing this. Quite interesting.

A bit off topic but I was also cut off from Facebook recently. It began with what was likely some bogus claimed "security" matter with my account, Facebook demanding that I provide a cell phone number they could send a text message to with a code I would then enter into Facebook to verify my number; I think that all Facebook really wanted was my phone number and that the security issue was merely a pretext to obtain it.

I did not really want to do this, as Facebook has proven incapable (and worse) of protecting personal information. And there is no way to delete a phone number like that once Facebook has it. But I decided to do it anyway.

But that was not all. Next, Facebook demanded that I provide a photo of myself, even though there are already some uploaded to my account! Enough is enough. Facebook itself has been (ir)responsible for more of its personal data being compromised than perhaps any single user or entity, even the Russians. It all starts with them, and its odd how security conscious they play at being when, in fact, they compromise user security and are a truly despicable bunch. The $5 billion fine they were also recently assessed is also chump change when compared to the vast amounts of advertising revenue Facebook generates.

So consider me "unplugged." Facebook is a data mining blight on the world and one that I won't be certainly participating in anymore.

Fukuda's stuff is just flat out amazing.

The bad news is that you are now part of a statistic that FB can point to showing how they are "clearing out fake accounts" .. even though yours wasn't a fake account.

Zimbabwean Tererai Trent 'humbled' by New York statue


A Zimbabwean-born academic who taught herself to read from her brother's schoolbooks says she was shocked to learn that a life-size statue of her would be unveiled in the US.

"I'm just so humbled - it is unbelievable," Tererai Trent told BBC Focus on Africa. "Can you believe I am standing so tall in New York City?"

"We know that 3% of statues in the city are female," Ms Trent said. "My great-grand-mother, my grandmother, my mother - ha! - they would never have dreamt of something like this."

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey, actress Nicole Kidman, Olympian Gabby Douglas and author Cheryl Strayed are among the prominent women immortalised in bronze alongside Ms Trent outside New York's Rockefeller Centre.

I, the humble nail artist, present this for your consideration.

Nailed It: Bringing Science Into Nail Art

Of all the things I love about being a girl, I love doing nail art the most. But I'm also a scientist, and scientists aren't usually associated with perfectly manicured nails. Nail art became my way of debunking some common stereotypes, including those that associate scientists with being cold or unapproachable.

I had been blogging about science for a while, but I wanted to try something new. So on October 10, 2018, I started an Instagram account (@nailsciart) where I'd use nail art to reach a very specific demographic: teenage girls. I wanted to show them the fun side of science through an art form many of them could find appealing — and that it's possible to have polished nails and work on cool science.

I pick themes according to the season. Last October, I did a Halloween series explaining what bats do for humans and the environment.

I've also done designs that illustrate my interviews with scientists for Locally Sourced Science, a radio show hosted by my local radio station in Ithaca, N.Y. When I interviewed the curator of the fungi collection at the Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium, I stamped colorful fungi on my nails (above). Lately, I have been experimenting with drawing brain cell types such as neurons (shown below) and microglia using fine brushes. I used one of those designs to accompany an Instagram post about a story I wrote for NPR as an intern this summer, which was about detecting brain activity in seemingly unconscious patients.

5 Artists Using Glitter to Create Dazzling and Complex Artworks

Beyond its eye-catching quality, glitter evokes youthful craft making; refracts light to create dynamic, shifting perspectives; and straddles the line between glamour and camp. It’s no wonder that artists and curators alike are intrigued by the material. A current exhibition at the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, “Serious Sparkle,” celebrates contemporary artists who use glitter in their practice. “Glitter is often considered a ‘low’ art material, so bringing it into the space of a museum or gallery calls attention to the associations that come with it,” said Molly Channon, a curatorial assistant at the Tang.
