La Luz/Sugar Rush

Another month, another Artmix at the Crocker. This time the celebration revolved around the very great Hi-Fructose show currently being exhibited.1

Alison Kenyon of the show Skin Wars was creating body paintings based off of works from the exhibition.

Urs Fischer: The Public & the Private

at The Legion of Honor

This was one of the more extraordinary shows I’ve seen in some time.  Having the contemporary sculptures of Urs Fischer interspersed among the Rodin statues and even a painting taking the place of a Peter Paul Rubens created such a dynamic juxtaposition of old and new, giving both new context and meaning.

The Crying Horse

I can’t intellectualize why, but this tiny horse is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen. I saw a man nearly trip over it after not noticing it at all.

It all seems like such a fuck you to the art establishment that is the museum. It’s so rare to step into this kind of place and see such humor.

Nigel Poor!

Causally reading the Sacramento News and Review when I stumbled across an article on my professor from the Sacramento State photography program, Nigel  Poor.

np

All this after casually listening to a podcast where they previewed Nigel’s forthcoming podcast about life inside prison- Ear Hustle

She is such a rad lady. I’m so excited for all her future successes and adventures to come.
