5/19/10: The business of art as art, pt 2

May 19, 2010 at 10:04 am (art, culture, interesting, other sites to see)

I’m totally late to this and you’ve probably already seen it, but hey – it’s amazing enough to watch again!

I wrote a post a week or so ago about a class I want to teach called The Business of Art As Art, and I think this fits in perfectly to that. This is a project, designed to make money (this time for charity), which is art in and of itself. Normally, the idea of making money off of your work is something that artists feel uncomfortable with or they feel as though it has to happen sort of accidentally. But here’s a great example of someone who came up with a very successful project that is incredibly moving and inspiring, and also designed to raise a lot of money! Brilliant.

Go Sheena, go. You are amazing.

Many tiny hat tips to Ms. Siouxsie.

Hey Vimeo and/or WordPress, why can’t I embed Vimeo videos into my blog posts??

    WordPress alters Vimeo’s embed code when embedding in their software. Use this walkaround method: http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/
