I went to the Lee Mullican discussion at the Getty last night. I related most to the parts of the discussion as Tony Berlant talked about not talking about art/analyzing art, about allowing it to be a non verbal/non intellectual experience, which we got to have in the second part of the program as the raga music players performed while slides of Mullican’s work was projected. While waiting for the tram later I was speaking to someone who seemed familiar, but what really tipped me off to her identity were her shoes. You can find out more about her and see her artwork by visiting here or here.
I dreamed that I was offered a box of "Hearty Leviathans" for breakfast. I thought they were a kind of breakfast bar, although the cover of the box displayed a stack of food in a pyramidal shape that included pancakes, sausages and mashed potatoes. I thought that they ought to have lingonberries in the ingredients and turned the box over and over (it was empty) looking for the ingredients listing. I was squinting, trying to find it, when I was distracted by the approach of three drunk men.
This from the California Arts Council: Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's education office released information about the upcoming education proposals, and a key part of the education and budget package was $100 million for arts and music education for children in kindergarten through eighth grade.
And from his speech: "Now I propose that we use part of this money (the increase in education funding) so that children once again can have art, music and physical education in our schools," said Governor Schwarzenegger.
From San Diego to Vancouver, 100 Artists of the West Coast II covers 100 artists with over 400 full color photographs of their work. The collection includes art from private as well as public collections and installations, including the collections of LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the New York Public Library to name just a few. I'm happy to be included.
