Inside out

The Contemporary Arts Center is a great architectural moment in our central district downtown. There is one floor dedicated to staff and I was lucky to take a peek around, looking out from under one of the cantilevered slabs. Inside and across from this view? A Mapplethorpe lingering temporarily from a recent exhibition. I saw […]

JUXTAPOSED: Religion

A favorite piece of art and understanding by Mike & Maaike. As they put it, “The world’s most influential religious texts are brought together and presented on the same level.” My friend’s have this in their house and I pause to admire it every time I walk by.

Beguiled by the Wild

Over the last two years, the phrase has re-emerged on clothing, social media, and various […]

Intrigued

I was going to title this post “Weird” but frankly? This is totally more intriguing than weird—a word that gets overused as much as awesome. (Guilty.) Anyway, someone arranged all these flags around piles of leaves and trees in a tiny park in Northside. I think they’re fun. UPDATE: These are part of an installation […]
