Huntsville Art Museum 40th Anniversary [Jun. 29th, 2010|02:00 pm]

Flash gallery from Photoshop.com If it doesn't work, join Steve Jobs


So I wanted to take pictures of something this week. Not knowing what I wanted to shoot, I thought that if I went to the park, I would find something worthwhile to shoot.

I had no clue that it was the Huntsville Museum of Art's 40th Anniversary nor that these paintings would be hanging up.


Normally, I'd hate this kind of thing thinking that this is glorifying utter rubbish to the level of high art, but as I kept looking at certain of the works, I started to see real art. I'm not saying that what's in my gallery here is on the same level of Rembrant; clearly what is in my gallery is not realistic art nor is there years of technique or theory behind all of these pieces.

I can't really explain it. All I can say is that it somehow struck me as appropriate that for the 40th anniversary of an Art Museum to have the kids of the surrounding schools make artwork to mark the occasion. Granted, I'm against the National Endowment of the Arts and I think that the Central Government needs to get the hell out of education...

For reference, here are two "wide shots" so you can see the conditions I was shooting in. I could kick myself for not having re-white balanced when I moved from sun to shade. Also, the reason that some of the cropping is off is that even though I had a tripod and the ground looks level in the wide shots, it's not.

How freaking awesome!!!

I don't know if you noticed, but the children's art was also imitating other great works of art - how neat! Also, love the embedded Photoshop.com "gallery." I've had an account for some time, but wasn't aware of this feature - go you!

So...I'm kinda in the same boat as you, and tomorrows post is all about that - how cool that you've got some real-world experience to share with me.

Great post dude.

No, I didn't notice. Maybe this is that subtle thing that made me think of the pieces as real art-because they were homages to real art!

I'm glad that when Flash finally loads, it works. I'm ready for Flash to be a dead technology. Flash is fucking slow.

I've had an account for some time, but wasn't aware of this feature
I found it 10 seconds flat. Figuring out their organization and their permissions, on the other hand, took some time.

Naked women always make for good subjects to photograph. Just as uniqueblog.

Great post dude.
You're the second person who's complimented me on my blogging today. Thanks, man!

So then, this begs the question. What is art? And why should it be glorified? And how to get there if not by starting somewhere? Does it make a difference how old the artist is whether the work they produce is any good?

I came. I looked. I commented. I left.

Now, I clean. :-D Time to go pick up the yard for my party that I'm throwing my sister on the 11th. :-D
