032: Skill Building

 

Today’s podcast is packed with fun art-related talk: my pottery obsession…er, class, the MFA Museum Council, and work by Yayoi Kusama and Cecilia Vicuña.  I will do a long post all about pottery class very soon.  But in the meantime, here is the instagram video I talk about on the podcast with the guy making the little pots.  It’s AMAZING (and if you don’t see it, here is a direct link).

I also wanted to share two photos from the Yayoi Kusama installation (the first is inside the installation and the second is a photo of one of the “peepholes”):

And this is the Cecilia Vicuña piece:

And here is an historical quipu:

Finally, here is a link to the Museum Council instagram account.  I posted a video of the Yayoi Kusama experience to that account:

And a video of Cecilia Vicuña singing:

012: Going to Museums

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today we’re switching things up a bit.  Instead of having a guest, Mom and I are chatting about museums.  We discuss visiting museums with children, what is a museum, favorite museum experiences, and even wander into some questions of the value of certain art.

I wanted to share a resource guide in this post to some of the museums and artwork we discuss on the podcast.
