On the bayou: Chauvin Sculpture Garden

Hmmm, August 14 was the last time I posted. Dang, a lot has kinda happened since then. I guess I could continue on about the Denver trip, but that was so last July. Besides we weren’t there very long and basically drank beer because there be a lot of crafty beer making types in Colorado. […]

Before I get to the Frankapalooza Oak Park Tour, I believe I heard the soft thud of suggested knit shop absence. Oh ye of little faith! Thoust should never doubtest a knit shop visit if there is a knit shop in the va-cinity. Lo and behold – It was at this point my camera battery […]

The Dinner Party

A few months before the Epic East Coast Duckapalooza Trip, I was reading up on Ana Mendieta, a Cuban American artist who worked mainly with natural material – dirt, grass, sticks, mud – to depict various ideas about life and death with an undercurrent of feminism. This led me to other feminist artists of the […]

What about the lights?

No, we did not attempt a viewing of the Marfa Mystery Lights. If you are not familiar with the Marfa Lights, you know what to do. I certainly wanted to see them. The deal is, you can go out to the viewing place and return with nothing but a hangover the next day (if you […]

Last go round in Marfa

On Sunday we went to the Chinati Foundation to see Donald Judd’s permanent installation of aluminum boxes. I always want to pronounce it Chianti, like the wine, but it’s chin-ati, named after the Chinati mountain range in west Texas. There was no picture taking allowed but here’s a page of pics. In a vast field […]

Who’s there? Land art. Back in the 70s, minimalist artist Donald Judd moved to Marfa, Texas. Working in Marfa allowed him to realize his work on a grander scale in concert with the stark landscape of west Texas. Some of his work is housed in two World War II prisoner of war camp warehouses.

The Spiral Jetty

After the grueling hour and a half drive, we arrive at our destination – The Spiral Jetty. Ok, remember when I told you I didn’t do any research? Yeah. See, it never occurred to me that the Spiral Jetty could possibly be UNDER WATER. Because, ya know, in my world of perfect scenarios, everything is […]

Land (art) ho!

From I Da Ho to Land Ho… of the artistic type. It’s all about bein’ a ho. One of my perennial, bucket list items has been to see Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, a land art installation created in 1970 on the northern part of the Great Salt Lake. Who wouldn’t want to see a spiral […]
