The LA County Fair will take place in 2021, but it will be ‘smaller and safer’

The Los Angeles County Fair will downsize this year in anticipation that the novel coronavirus will be a hindrance in September. An announcement on the fair’s website says that due to the unpredictability of mutating strains of the virus that causes COVID-19 as well as vaccine rollouts, “it would be fiscally unfeasible to plan a grand celebration only to be told a fair could not be held.” The announcement said the fair will be a “smaller, safer celebration” than usual, but did not provide specif...

Ed Harris talks portraying painter Claude Monet in free Valentine’s Day Zoom performance

Impressionism’s sibling rivalry

Sixty world-famous impressionist paintings arrived at the Royal Academy of Arts in London from Copenhagen in March of this year, a whisker before lockdown was imposed. Instead of drawing box-office crowds, they sat in storage for four months. But then the Academy reopened its doors in August with the Covid-secure “Gauguin and the Impressionists.” That this exhibition sold out so quickly is testament not only to our hunger for unmediated culture after a period of captivity, but also to the enduri...

How the Visionary Artist Christo (RIP) Changed the Way We See the World

Husband and wife team Christo and Jeanne-Claude produced what is arguably the most grandiose body of work in modern history. Their temporary monuments to the very idea of hugeness were viewable from space and impossible to ignore on the ground: Entire islands wrapped in miles of pink fabric. Gargantuan yellow and blue umbrellas placed up and down the coasts of California and Japan. The Reichstag bundled up in white fabric like a massive, shiny Christmas gift. These projects left an indel...

From Adobe CC to PowerPoint, this 25-item asset bundle can elevate any new design project

Is repetition about a drive for perfection — or does it just mean you’ve run out of good ideas? While many experts study in awe the nuance, style, and mastery found in all 250 oil paintings of water lilies by French artist Claude Monet , others could wonder why a talent like that would spend 30 years painting a pond with some water plants over and over.  Of course, repetition could just be the result of using the same tools over and over. So if you’re starting to find your digital design p...

A guide to Monet’s Garden at Giverny – Normandy, France

The soft, translucent light of the Seine valley has drawn artists to Normandy for centuries and it was here that Claude Monet made his home at Giverny. His paintings were inspired by the garden he created, full of flowers like splashes of colour on an artist’s palate. The Monet garden at Giverny is now run by the Fondation Monet, who have restored it much as it was when the artist painted his famous series of Nymphéas water lilies, with watery reflections in the Japanese inspired garden. Th...

Visit Japan’s Seto Art Islands

Japan‘s Seto Inland Sea is a placid stretch of water cushioned between three of Japan’s main islands — Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku — populated by a hazy, pine-cloaked archipelago of some 3,000 islands. Twelve of these, known collectively as the “art islands,” are home to contemporary artworks and exhibits that have become an integral part of the islands’ scenery. They’re found scattered along sandy shores, in the abandoned buildings of ancient villages, and hidden along trails in the dense co...
