Whew! Finally, #TheFrickCollection has realized it's #2014. The staunchly conservative #museum amended its visitor policies to allow #photography without flash aka #MUSEUMSELFIE! (#filters are a go).
The decision closely follows a host of other institutions' move to lighten up already, Hyperallergic reported. In allowing photography, The Frick Collection joins the ranks of MoMA PS1, the Met, the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, and the Getty Museum.
Round 3 of the ArtSlant Prize showcase opens today!

I have a fascination with water. Water has qualities of fluidity, rhythm, luminosity, color, movement, and ultimately, a spiritual essence. Although I am drawn to water as my source of inspiration, my art is non-representational. I want my work to have its own vitality and “life,” and be separat... [more]
Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell
Knox Martin named his new series of generously scaled, unframed drawings "Caprichos" for the moralizing, didactic, fever-dream etchings of Goya that first attracted him as a child, 67 years ago. But there is substantial whimsy to Martin's recent phantasmagoria of animal and human forms. Ranging from roughly 2 to 7 feet on a side, they are confident, loosely drawn in pen and ink, crayon and watercolor on thin sheets of paper,... [more]

Douglas Mandry, Montagne I (Ponction, volutes), 2013
ArtSlant Prize Exhibitions presents Douglas Mandry, the first artist to be selected for our ArtSlant Prize exhibition series, 2014.
