We’ll be sure to pass your comment onto your curators, and well, from a personal perspective, I think it’s a swell exhibition idea.
Thanks a ton for the positive feedback about the Tumblr. Can’t really tell you how much it makes my / our day! Hope you can make it back to the museum one of these days. Cheers…<3
Wow, all these jazz luminaries were right here in our very own neighborhood. Incredible.
Love, love, love when our world collides with sci-fi. Here is Giger’s iconic Alien (RIP, Giger) depicted in traditional brush painting style, supposedly by Qi Baishi. Baishi was an acclaimed artist credited with transforming the brush art of China’s educated elite into a more universal art form embraced by all social backgrounds. In fact, we recently just wrapped up The Carved Brush, an exhibition of Baishi’s artworks!
Anyway, here’s some backstory on this fantastic painting.
