Art Invigorates the Senses!

If you are ever in a slump, and who isn't, just stop what you are doing and enjoy some ART!

It will take you away from the current dilemma or stalemate and let you return refreshed and more creatively able to tackle whatever the glitch is!

If you are at work, just take a virtual tour of your favorite museum. This site gives you an array of ideas for Los Angeles: Discover The Arts in LA

We chose The Craft & Folk Art Museum, with a cuurent exhibition called: A Sense of Balance: The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar.



May 18th - August 24th

This retrospective of American woodturner Stoney Lamar presents over 30 works made between 1987 to the present. Lamar’s sculptures are constructed through a unique approach to multi-axial lathe work, giving his pieces a distinct sense of line and movement that draws from figurative and architectural influences. This spirit of experimentation has firmly placed Lamar’s work in the avant-garde of the woodturning world. Curated by Andrew Glasgow. ...more

1. Those X-Ray Photo images are a real killer, aren't they? Never seen such a beauty under a see through "Artvision" scope. (that's my own artistic wording)

2. With the heat and summer months nearing, to remain indoors visiting art scene places would be a "cool thing" to do for senior citizens wouldn't it?

3. Where can we "hear" these suggestions for those of us that cannot take a virtual tour? Can you suggest a radio station discussing similar?

4. I think ART is for all ages and not just for the young. Correct?

5. The only unappealing thing about visiting a museum is the standing or walking for us oldies but goodies. What's your take on that?

Thanks,
Curi

Hello, Curi,

So nice to see you! And so glad that you like the Art, too! You are very creative in describing the X-Ray Art tool, as an "Artvision" Scope! Great name!

We are not familiar with radio tours, but found this one on google that you may enjoy:
http://www.artsradionetwork.com
It has podcasts, with the most popular being these:

* Artist Patricia Maguire Brings Her Creativity to Delray Center for the Arts
* Yesteryear Village A Gateway to Florida’s Past
* BaCA Brings Art, Artists and Cultural Collaboration to Pompano Beach
* Palm Beach Zoo a Feast for the Ears as Well as the Eyes
* Pianist Tao Lin Brings Beautiful Music to South Florida and Beyond
* Leonard Maltin Returns to the 2nd Annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival
* Barbara Craddock Brings the Magic of Cuban Pete to the Screen in Mambo Man
* 2nd Annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival – A Conversation with Stephen Bogart
* Palm Beach Atlantic University and Norton Museum Celebrate a Legendary “Mambo Man”
* Stories in Sterling Continues at the Flagler Museum

Here is a radio station in Pittsburgh that is mostly about the arts: http://www.wqed.org/fm/

And a PBS in San Diego with a schedule at the top on Arts & Culture radio shows: http://www.kpbs.org

You are so correct, ART is for ALL Ages!!

We know that you do not like miscellaneous links, but when we google Museum Tours for the Elderly (or you can do Blind, Senior Citizen, etc. ) we get this nice array of options, which could deb further refined by adding a preferred city or location:

Good luck and thank you again for visiting and commenting! You are a Super Star, Curi!

Amid snapshots of progress and change, it can be a test to remain focused and grounded. Our Art Invigorates is pulled in numerous ways and our consideration is scattered, which can abandon us feeling separated, depleted, exhausted, and confounded. I think recovering the sense of art invigorates Help with Coursework as well facilitates fresh craftsman to be more mindful of what is happening within your adversary on a better level so you can start to respond to his moves prior. By responding prior you don't have to move as much to abstain from getting hit and can simply move into an unprotected region of his to strike, instead of first blocking.
