Toni Morrison, at Portland State, 1975
Soooooo just in case you’d seen a few cool quotes from Toni Morrison’s 1975 lecture at Portland State this weekend but hadn’t been able to access the audio yourself, I transcribed it.
You can download it from my site in .rtf and .pdf formats (http://bit.ly/1ofhrWl).
Please don’t sell or resell it—but do spread it like the grains of rice in a sack that fell off the back of a tall truck in the middle of the night during a tornado. Or anything else that involves wide and free distribution of something that’s tasty when cooked and properly chewed.
Entering the Colorful Kaleidoscope World of @osgemeos
A circular installation pulls spectators into the colorful world of Brazilian twin brothers and graffiti artists Os Gêmeos. Their new art exhibit, A ópera da lua (“The Moon Opera”), features paintings, sculptures and a video installation where works are connected by doors and windows. The artists are known for incorporating storytelling and fantasy into their exhibits, where surreal elements blend together in a multicolored collage as if seen through a kaleidoscope.
Here’s are some higher quality photos of some prints that I’m currently selling in my etsy shop. I’ve been working on this series for about a year and I’m hoping to do my own version of each loteria card there is. I also have some shirts and a couple of dolls for sell too so please check it out!
