Childhood Art Taken to Dizzying Heights

Childhood Art Taken to Dizzying Heights

Amazingly good article on Jeff Koon’s exhibit of childhood inspired sculptures at Fondation Beyeler. Pictures are wonderful but author’s insights take it a step further. I found the sheer scale of the exhibits humbling. It’s hard to comprehend on how frightening the amazing can seem to a child.

But I could have done without the Michael Jackson sculpture.  

This Swiss museum hosts art dealer Ernest Beyeler’s amazing collection of modern art. Visit the website to see the diverse exhibits and cool architecture. But watch out for the moving parts (or maybe it’s just me who can’t handle cascading words). Check out http://www.fondationbeyeler.ch/en/museum/impressions/impressions

Comes from one of my favorite new design blogs: www.weheart.co.uk  Sometimes overwhelming on a large screen this blog not only provides eye candy but serves up thoughtful articles. My favorites include Stuff Crush (exactly what it sounds like for us unrepentant shoppers)  and Design Geekery (your virtual travel service for visiting new exhibits and shops).

Its impossible to list all of the web’s greatest gifts. But the ability to travel while sitting in your seat has to be among the top.
