The answer will be revealed on our social media on Monday: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram. This week's theme is: pizza. #1 "... is a vivid visual representation that expounds the dichotomous act of consumerism: on the one hand, the form and gigantesque proportions of this highly desirable food item are playful and cartoonish, yet, they belie the terror of ab...

It's always refreshing to be around the folks who don't think of art in... [more]

We’re pumped to be doing our first #Instaresidency, where we hand over our Instagram to an artist for a week and let them sort out the rest. First up: digital artist and filmmaker Theodore Darst.
