Art Omi

I wonder what it would be like to walk up to Alice Aycock’s “A Simple Network of Underground Wells & Tunnels” with a group of adults. I can’t imagine that they would sprint to the openings as if they had waited their whole life for this, then freeze realizing that the irresistible wells are equally terrifying. It’s …

Art Parks

We love to visit “art parks” or art collections installed outdoors. Their curation, intention, and influence range just as the size of these parks differ greatly.  Some include more site-specific environmental installations where the work feels more discovered than placed. Others are formally arranged, so it feels like you are walking through a museum but …

Each page is full of crisp, stunning photographs and succinct captions. The book congruously pictures the logistics, …

Modern Art Memory Game

This is the memory game we own because it is about art (knew that was coming). Sometimes it can be easier to sneak art into the home than to chase young children through a museum (or drag older ones). This publisher also makes versions that feature Eames, Girard, Hruby, and Harper. But I prefer the Modern Art version because it introduces them …
