WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Digging On Pigs

ArtWorks’ second Big Pig Gig public art project takes flight

0 Comments · Tuesday, May 1, 2012
When I was growing up, the fact that Cincinnati was known as “Porkopolis” was not exactly a selling point for me. I vividly remember Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point opening in 1988 to much hullabaloo thanks to the flying pig sculptures near the entrance and being absolutely mortified with embarrassment that my hometown would choose to embrace its reputation as a haven for swine.  

A Great American Sculptor’s Show Visits Columbus

Columbus’ Wexner Center for the Arts makes a bold statement in its current retrospective of David Smith’s work: He’s the greatest American sculptor of the 20th century.

The body of work on display in Semantics Gallery is, at first sight, as inexplicable as the show’s title suggests: She Keeps It In Play/They Don’t Know What To Call It. As abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures, the works leave much to the imagination but they don’t entirely defy explanation.   

Supplemental Ornament (Review)

Althea Murphy-Price makes sculpture from hairdos

Althea Murphy-Price is fascinated by the everyday fashion show of our lives, where we all walk around projecting and revealing information about ourselves through the hairstyles we sport, what we wear and all the superficial details that make up our self-images.
