Hello Friends! I Make Picture's good friend Nick McPhail recently introduced us to his friend Allison Reimus who has a fabulous art blog called Jumping in Art Museums, which she runs from her home in Washington D.C. The blog chronicles art happenings by featuring images taken by willing attendees who literally JUMP (I'm talking suspended in the air) for joy amid the surrounding work. The playful, interactive site not only shows people around the world what is happening in the art community, but also teaches the public that galleries/exhibits/museums don't have to be the dull, stuffy, intimidating environments for which they're too often mistaken.
Nick and I, along with our friend Greg, were sure to "jump" for Allison's blog when we visited Esther's show (see her Featured Artist post below for more information) at Billy Shire Gallery in Culver City, California. The Amazing Allison was kind enough to feature our jumps...plus a little plug for I Make Picture...on Jumping for Art Museums HERE. Thanks, lady! Keep up the great work! Guys, make sure to visit this super-sweet blog!
I love it THIS much:
