How is this possible? I had every intention of turning off my “sexy radar” and avoiding another love crisis. Especially after the last gallery assistant made such a show of her capriciousness. But what am I to do? The heart wants what the heart wants and my heart is no different than anyone else’s heart in as much as it wants what it wants too, only a good deal more so.
Whenever I do a grad school visit, the question I’m most often asked is “How do I get a gallery?” It’s never “Oh! How are you Mr. Grossmalerman?” or “ Would you like to feel how soft my freshly washed hair is?” No! It’s always “How do I get a gallery?” So, by this anecdotal evidence I’m simply going to have to assume that this question weighs heavily on the minds of the young artist. I mean, I suppose you do have to ask yourself “What good is an artist without a gallery?” Not much!
Sometimes life (and art) aren’t fair, particularly in the case of classic Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote. So, let us consider his artistic brilliance and how his violence overshadows it.
Being a mid-level journalist and blogger is a special kind of adventure. Every day, as you head to your computer to open your inbox, you ponder what emails await you there.

It’s like Christmas (or your winter gift-centered holiday of choice) every day.

I would first like to make it very clear that I am not writing this out of jealousy or any sort of hot gay sex envy. Alright? Now, with that out of the way.
For those who need a break from following the news on what has turned out to be a horrific day, we offer this short bit of humor — 2 minutes and 46 seconds of hilarious art satire.
The Onion satirical site has decided to “go there” for their latest art-related story titled, “Robert Mapplethorpe Children’s Museum Celebrates Grand Opening,” which almost sounds like it could be real. You know there has to be latex and lube involved … or something.
After a long night of questionably consensual love making with a dead-eyed heavily accented spectre I was awoken by the ship’s steward.
Well, did I ever have an exciting and downright adventurous Armory week!
Normally, the stakes to this answer aren’t quite so high. The advertising agency CP+B recently administered an “aptitude test” to its art directors that included the question “What is your favorite piece of art?” and “Who is your favorite designer, art director, or artist?” Would your answer stand up to scrutiny?
