The Golden Touch of Dutch Golden-Age Artist Johannes Vermeer

In the history of art, there has perhaps been no artist better at creating purity of light and form than Johannes Vermeer. His special ability to create light in paintings caused the Dutch painter to rise to fame, but not until long after his death. Today, only 36 of his works of art remain. This causes art lovers the world over to treasure them all the more. Indeed, the golden touch of Dutch Golden-Age artist Johannes Vermeer is evident in his surviving works of art.

Musicians Use Interactive Paint-by-Numbers to Connect with Fans

Bands are always trying to come up with creative methods of advertising new music and connecting with fans. Recently, the band Real Estate released an interactive paint-by-numbers music video that was not only original, but also created with the purpose of engaging audiences. The music video for “Stained Glass,” a song from Real Estate’s “In Mind” album, has so far captivated music lovers and brought the group a greater level of notoriety. We’re a little biased to paint-by-numbers, but we think Real Estate made a genius move by connecting with fans via a paint-by-numbers music video!

Inflatables Displayed at Muskegon Museum of Art

Are you questioning whether or not inflatables should be considered art? If so, remember all the unusual forms of art that people have accepted and even embraced: feather art, match art, tin foil art, colored pencil art, and more. With these mediums in mind, it makes sense that inflatables, when designed by true artists, could and should be considered art.
