By the way… XKCD is a brilliant and poignant webcomic, one of my favorites. It’s also CC-licensed. Go check it out.
This weekend at the Denver Art Museum I had the opportunity to enjoy some whimsical video works by the German artist BjÃ¸rn Melhus. One installation, Deadly Storms, is a wry riff on the breathless, content-free style of breaking news so common on television.
Given that Denver isn’t exactly known as a fine-art Mecca, it’s refreshing that the Denver Art Museum regularly provides an excellent selection of work — especially modern art. Plus, the new Frederic C. Hamilton building (designed by Daniel Libeskind) is trippy and fun.
