Just like cannabis, glass pipes are not just for smoking anymore. This functional sculpture genre, once a vibrant but somewhat arcane subculture, has gone high-end, signature and artisanal. Far from $5 head shop or parking-lot blanket fare, these days the glass pipe world's best-known practitioners rival blue-chip art stars in both acclaim and prices.
There's no doubt the wild proliferation and growing popularity of hand-blown glass pipes and accoutrements is related to the current trend toward mainstream acceptance of cannabis use. D..
In a powerhouse new team-up with Alex Ross Art, SYFY WIRE will be ripping the wrapper off many limited-edition Alex Ross lithos, rare variant covers, con-only surprises, behind-the-scenes videos, signed posters, intriguing interviews, and contest giveaways leading up to SDCC 2018, the coolest pop culture party on the planet.
Last week, we revealed Ross' "Origins: Superman," a sweeping panoramic art print capturing the immortal legend of the Man of Steel.
Today we present “Black Panther: Character Model,” a limited-edition fine art lithograph matted on premium foam core and made available exclusively through Alex Ross Art. This striking tri-part portrait of the King of Wakanda will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con on July 18, 2018 for the price of $50 each.
Since springing out of the imaginations of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and into the pages of Fantastic Four #52 in 1966, Black Panther has remained one of the best-loved characters in the company's rich stables, and was furth..
CLEVELAND, Ohio - The Fine Arts Garden in University Circle is a tree-lined, reflecting pool for the Cleveland Museum of Art, a magnet for wedding photographers, and an oasis for picnicking, daydreaming, skipping stones, and people watching.
But could it be more? Should it evolve as it approaches its centennial in 2027?
The museum wants to know and will hold a community brainstorming session Saturday, 1-3:30 p.m., to envision what the Fine Arts Garden might become in the future. Those interested in participating should register its website here.
Attendees will hear presentations about data gathered on the garden's present condition through earlier surveys and meetings. Participants will participate in strolls throughout the 10-acre garden, and in facilitated conversations about how it might be upgraded in the future.
Should a boathouse be added to Wade Lagoon? A restaurant or cafe? Provisions for skating in the winter?
Should contemporary sculpture be interspersed among the t..
Retired art teacher Tim Collins strolled through the sea of artworks and mingled with generations of students and teachers Friday at the Casper Events Center.
He took in the nearly 4,500 pieces of art on display there for the Wyoming State High School Art Symposium, the annual showcase he started five decades ago.
“If we have an art show, will you show up?” he’d asked fellow teachers around the state.
Students from 16 schools arrived with a few hundred artworks for first Wyoming High School Art Symposium in 1968 at Laramie High School, where he taught, Collins recalled.
The Wyoming State High School Art Symposium this weekend celebrated its 50th year. Collins joined many other educators and state officials there in sharing the event’s history and growth through the decades.
This year’s symposium showcased work from more than 1,500 students around Wyoming. They participated in workshops and met college recruiters while competing for ribbons, scholarships and chances to land their artwor..
A post-secondary Victoria art school is being evicted by its landowner, the Greater Victoria School District, from a building it's called home for 14 years.
Since 2004, the Vancouver Island School of Art has leased an old elementary school from the school district. However, due to swelling enrolment, the district says it now needs the space for students.
The district's secretary-treasurer, Mark Walsh, says changes to B.C.'s class composition sizes, as well as population migration to the Island from Alberta and the Lower Mainland, have pushed enrolment well above previous projections.
"Most of our sites are starting to fill up," said Walsh. "Central Middle School actually is full, and we need to find a way to make sure we can fit all the kids in this area."
For now, that means increasing capacities at other schools like Lansdowne Middle School — which is just down the road from the Vancouver Island School of Art, also known as the Quadra street building.
"[The Quadra str..
If you can, make a visit to the campuses that interest you. While some schools hold regular open houses, tours, and information sessions, others have much more limited opportunities to experience the facilities. Look out for open houses in the fall (some, like Yale, require you to register) and public open studio days in the spring, when you can meet and see the work of current students. Both are great opportunities to better understand a program, its ethos, and its teaching methods.
Pay attention to the specific departments a school has. In many cases, schools have medium-specific departments that you will have to apply to, like painting or sculpture or ceramics. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t have the opportunity to pursue more interdisciplinary work—in many cases you can. But, if you’re torn between painting and sculpture, for example, look at the faculty and former students to help you choose one over the other (though some schools, like Yale, let you apply to two pr..

‘TARSILA DO AMARAL: INVENTING MODERN ART IN BRAZIL’ at the Museum of Modern Art (through June 3). The subtitle is no overstatement: In the early 1920s, first in Paris and then back home in São Paulo, Brazil, this painter really did lay the groundwork for the coming of modernism in Latin America’s most populous nation. Tired of the European pretenders in Brazil’s art academies, Tarsila (who was always called by her first name) began to intermingle Western, African and..
