Mining Northern New Mexico: Human-made Tools to Solve Human-made Problems   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Jonathan Blaustein, Nina Elder, Debbie Long at Harwood Museum of Art February 22nd - May 4th
Posted 3/28/14

In the stark, grandiose landscapes of Northern New Mexico, it is easy to see the human element as small. Significant to be sure, but comparatively outweighed by the beauty and immensity that radiates so gracefully and quietly from big-sky vistas. Compared to the dramatic landscape, the human presence is more akin to interference, a disruption of the Wild West. The byproducts of this human disruption therefore mar the land more visibly and more violently against the backdrop of high desert and moun... [more]

Sun Tunnels (1976) via CLUI Photographer, videographer, and sculptor Nancy Holt, 75, passed away Saturday in Manhattan after fighting a long battle with Leukemia. Holt, best known for her monumental sized sculptures in Southwest, was one of the first, and most notable, pioneers of the Land-art movement of the 60s and 70s. She was a rarity in her time, both as a woman in an art world still largely dominated by men and as an artist eschewing the gallery for on-site installations. Over her fif... [more]

An Exception - Another Favorite Work from De Young Museum, San Francisco  
by
2/5/12 Posted 2/5/12

Originally posted on matthewfelixsun.blogspot.com Despite the rule I made that I would only cite two pieces from each museum I've visited, I decided to cite a third from the De Young Museum, San Francisco. The reason for this exception is that I just lost a dear friend, and it was only recently we visited that museum together. I am left with an indelible image of my friend in front of the piece I want to cite today. I will forever cherish the memory of her, from many times and places, includi... [more]

Lighting design  
by
1/10/11 Posted 1/10/11

A revolution in lighting design is finally taking place. It has taken many years for museum people and organisations to realise that the investment in good museum lighting and of course an experienced museum lighting designer really pays dividends. For example take a mundane object which normally would not get a second look from a museum or exhibition visitor. Then mount that object in a museum display showcase with beautiful lighting and the object is transformed from the ugly duckling into a swan... [more]
