Poetry Through-out a City.

This is super cool, people use billboards to display their poetry instead of advertisements.

A personal favorite:
Whenever you see
the sun reflected
in the window
of a building
it is an angel

Giant Prehistoric Alian/Predator Masks!

I think I may love going to Natural History Museums more then I like going to Art Museums. Some of my most cherished memories are of sitting and sketching animals and people and other oddities at the different Natural Hist. Museums I have visited during my life. They are very inspiring places for me.

I went to the new Utah Museum of Natural History on Saturday and was very impressed by the thoughtful and aesthetic way the Paleo exhibit was set up. Giant black and white murals by Doug Henderson and this family tree display of Triceratops skulls illustrating their evolution. What a menacing and mean looking display! They reminded me props form a si/fi movie.

Tell your parents to take you its inspiring

"the woman who once spent 736 hours and 30 minutes sitting immobile in the atrium of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, staring at strangers until many wept or fled." (from the New York Times Article) what if we did this? like at a library, or a park?
