To illustrate just how beneficial the NEA’s work has been, artist and environmental engineer Tega Brain has programmed this WEBSITE that scrolls through the types of grants the NEA awarded last year alone. Check out the this article on Hyperallergic.com.
Have you ever looked at a piece of art in a museum and thought “I could do that”? Here is a great little video on why there’s more to the story. Let us know what you think!

I feel incredibly lucky to have had the chance to visit the Consenses exhibition on Martha’s Vineyard and meet it’s amazing founder, Sally Taylor (daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon).
Consenses is a collaborative, multidisciplinary game of “Telephone” featuring the work of 130 artists from all over the world who have never met. 22 Photographs of Martha’s Vineyard were selected. The photos were sent to song writers, the songs were sent to dancers, the dances were sent to painters, the paintings were sent to perfume artists, the perfumes were sent to designers, and so on.
Sally was inspired by the ancient fable “The blind men and the Elephant” in which 5 Blind men come to their own concept of “Elephant” based on limited interactions with one. It is her wish, through ConSenses that we explore what happens when we listen to one another without words, share our perceptions without judgment, take a look through each other’s eyes and let go of everything we thought we knew.
Check out her fantastic TED Talk!
