More fun than Monet

As an art history major, I did a lot of compare and contrast essays in college and grad school. Look for the similarities, look for the differences. Boom. Compare/contrast essay. Nothing against the classic art faves, but it's way more fun to compare/contrast images from my Pinterest boards.

Art is More Than Painting

Painting, drawing, and sculpture are like the 3 loud people at the party. Fun and entertaining, but total attention whores. What about the other art at the party, hanging out by the snacks with quiet dignity. This post is for them. Get down wit' yo' bad self, unconventional artwork.

Arts + Eats

It's always the same: cheese, crackers, wine, beer... big yawn. Gallery and museum openings, while full of good things to look at, are often lacking good things to eat. If I had it my way, I'd pair the artwork with food or drink that matches accordingly... Matthias Heiderich || teal pops
