Re: “Falling Starrs

These sculptures were/are amazing, and were in such a great setting, close to Seven Falls. I was living in Manitou when this was going on, and had the impression that Lottie was a bit off her rocker. I remember she tried to sue the news media for using her name in their articles. It is a shame that she brought such sadness into her mother's life in her golden years.

Re: “Colorado Springs-based Facebook page wants you to Give a Shit About Nature

I really liked his page until I ordered shirts from him in November and have yet to hear back from him. He has my money but where are my shirts?! its been four months and not a peep when I try to email or contact him on instagram. And im not the only one accordibg to some of his accounts. He's a scammer, which is sad because the world needs more people to give a shit.

Re: “Renowned dancer Eiko Otake investigates the tragedy of the Fukushima disaster

Such a beautiful exhibit. I love that it captured the desolation and decay around the site with such sensitivity. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this.

Re: “Renowned dancer Eiko Otake investigates the tragedy of the Fukushima disaster

TEPCO the Japanese nuclear power company continues to lie to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the plant life, insects, fish, ocean life and animals. We are now being told not to eat anyTuna and large fish at all because the radiation levels are unsafe to put into our body's and Fukushima radiation is now verified to be moving into the coast of California and the beaches will soon be polluted with this radiation! There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! and if we don't detox our bodies suffer we will! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This detox is VERY important to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the website with the single word Zeolite or search for" Detox With Micronized Zeolite"

Re: “'Wheelwork of the universe'

Loved the write up. Can't wait to go!! P.S. Indy staff writers: Would you please put the M-Sun, open/closing time of the gallery/event in the body of the article or on the side. It's frustrating to have to do an endless click-search to find out the details. Thanks!

Re: “Tibetan Buddhism gets a feminist reboot at IDEA Space

If you have to read the wall text in order to appreciate what the artist is intending to convey in their work, does the meaning of the work reside in the artwork or the wall text? So many artists today feel compelled to justify their artwork with references to obscure/non-western traditions or myths. So many others feel compelled to justify their artwork with references to commonly shared contemporary/western ironies and banalities. So few attempt to make art that is an end in itself. And as an end in itself more than merely itself, just as an object in nature is its own thing but profoundly meaningful to others precisely because of its singularity. Instead, artists continue to dig up dead deities or stencil pop culture in order to simulate artistic substance. In this town, far removed from the poles of NY and LA, why don't more artists abandon shared and threadbare references and, instead, make authentically new references?

Re: “In detail

It is true that successful artists throughout history have operated Ford-type factories in the production of their art. Rodin, Rembrandt, Rubens. Hirst, Koons, Warhol. It is also true that the definition of art remains confused with soap carving & pinstriping. Today, we can & often do confuse craft with art. Everyone is impressed by a well-rendered drawing. Everyone is impressed by a flawless athletic feat. It's like magic. It's its own justification. "I wish I could do that". But art isn't a synonym for technique. There are flawless craftsmen in every industry. All of our flawless commodities don't build themselves. Why are all the factory workers of the world not considered artists? Why aren't all of Rodin's technically adept manual workers considered artists? Most artists dodge their obsessive struggle with craft by passing it off as "art". They usually do this by making objects that suggest some vague-yet-profound meaning. This is easier to do then you might think. Really, they just like to carve soap. & you, the general public, like pretty carved soap. So everyone's happy with this state of affairs. But Rubens wasn't merely a flawess craftsman. Chihuly, on the other hand, is nothing but a flawless craftsman.

Re: “The FAC unveils yet another Chihuly show, reinforcing a decade of glass obsession

Chihuly makes high-end decorative art. For most people, "art" is precisely that: ribbon candy on a pedestal. The general public generally likes Chihuly's art. "You don't need an art degree to appreciate it". So true. In fact, your appreciation of Chihuly will likely diminish the higher your education. That's why the FAC is going to show him as often as their budget & good taste will allow. Despite what Blake Milteer says, there's nothing to be found beneath the surface of Chihuly's art. Or, there's as much to be found beneath the surface of Chihuly's art as can be detected beneath the surface of any object - particularly those to be found on the shelves of any high-end retailer's kitschen & dining department. Every artist knows that a Chihuly show is naked pandering to an indifferent public & Milteer knows that a Chihuly show will generate much needed revenue for the FAC. Never-the-less, once the tourists leave town & Chihuly is sent back to the FAC basement, I predict that the FAC & its utterly middlebrow board of directors will make good with the regional art community by exhibiting a couple of serious-yet-well-crafted-yet-cheap art shows.
