How to Create Vignettes That Really Pull a Room Together

Back when we were allowed to freely visit other people in their homes, you may have noticed that some had what was seemingly an area of knickknacks or other pieces of “decor” grouped together that somehow...worked.

The Norton Simon Foundation, which owns some of the artwork at Pasadena’s Norton Simon Museum, no longer has a family representative serving on its board after Eric Simon was voted out on Wednesday. Simon, the late Norton Simon’s grandson, claims he was kicked off because of his longstanding campaign to support the family who sued the Norton Simon Museum over a pair of paintings — German Renaissance masterpieces “Adam” and “Eve” — that Nazis stole from that family’s ancestors during the Holocaus...

What’s going on in the shadows? A visual arts timeline

Although cast shadows lurk almost everywhere in the visual arts, they often slip by audiences unnoticed. That’s unfortunate, since every shadow tells a story.
