I started an Album of the Week last year for some of the students in my advocacy class, and this year it's moving here.
This week's album is Space Cadet, by Kid Koala (2011). Kid Koala is both a DJ and an illustrator, and for this project he made a soundtrack for the book. It's space-y, dream-y, and piano-y. Koala also went on a "Headphone Concert" tour with this project. He played live, but instead of speakers the music went to individual headphones for spectators.
One of those "historic re-enactments in historic buildings" museums found a way to deal with budget shortfalls--renting rooms in the historic buildings to tenants.
Two things come to mind: have these people read "CivilWarLand in Bad Decline"? But also: which museum would I like to live in? I don't think it would be an art museum, to be honest. This seems practical.
Don't like abstract art? It may be because
Just as interesting: wait, there's a Museum of Bad Art?
If you're anything like me, and I assume you are, then you've longed to sit in a comfy living room and have a personal and perhaps emotional conversation with Christopher Columbus.
Finally, we're getting our opportunity. Artist Tatzu Nishi, whose specialty is making rooms in places where they wouldn't otherwise exist, is building a living room atop the statue of Columbus in New York City's Columbus Circle, on the corner of Central Park. Visitors will climb (or take an elevator) to the room, which will feature the 13-foot statue in the middle of it. There will be television, but no wifi, in the room.
