Classic sculptures in modern outfits. I think I have those same purple shoes… Founding Father Pin-Ups. Adams never looked so good. A temporary exhibit in New York City invited passerbys to touch black women’s hair. The resulting discussion, about racism, sexism, appropriation, and connections is a fascinating one. An instant, interactive art center experience was…

Monday Links on a Friday? Just keeping you on your toes… The German Museum Association (meine Kollegen) has issued new ethical guidelines for the care and repatriation of human remains. Sehr gut, Deutschland, sehr gut. A beautiful video about artist Ai Weiwei, his work, and the role of art in understanding life. What happens when…

Taking a 12-year old to the museum – a photo essay. Jamestown cannibalism confirmation, and the evidence will be displayed at the Smithsonian. Photographer Haley Morris-Cafiero¬†documents the people who mock her in public by taking their picture. The story behind the ubiquitous “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster. For the museum bloggers out there –…

Here’s what was awesome in the world this week: The Toronto Public Library launched TKR-451, a Fahrenheit-451 alternative reality game. Take your seashells out of your ears and join the Resistance! I don’t know what’s better – that a seal has shown that a non-vocal mimicing animal can keep a beat, or that he does…

Tilda Swinton is presenting a performance piece, The Maybe, at the MOMA, by sleeping in a glass box. As if performing in a David Bowie video wasn’t cool enough… And speaking of David Bowie, the new V&A exhibit on the artist sounds AMAZING. The author of I F*cking Love Science turned out to be a…

Monday Links on a Wednesday, because that’s how I roll. Collectors Weekly examines the role of Bill Cosby’s sweaters on The Cosby Show. Rob Brydon embodies that special type of educator. You know the one. A great article on the genetics behind Muellerian mimicry. A blog combining fashion and historical perspective. Love it! Dinosaur egg…

The Tideline Project from the David Suzuki (love him!) Foundation makes you imagine what your home would look like underwater. 3-D printing fossils. ‘Nough said! Jaunty Dame with some fun examples of library exhibits. “Life’s Lessons: Free” has so much fun and poignant potential. Have you shared your stories of creativity with the peeps over…

Sorry about the blog silence – I’ve been busy working in Stuttgart (and since I have to wake up at 5:30 to catch my train, I’ve really just been busy being sleepy in Stuttgart). More posts to come next week! A hairstylist employed some impressive experimental archaeology to challenge accepted theories of Roman hairstyle construction…

Are you all subscribed to The Brain Scoop? Excellent, I thought so! This fantastic behind-the-scenes look into the Phillip L. Wright Zoological Museum is nostalgic for all of us who have actually used a brain scoop (ah, memories), and super-interesting for everyone else. An oldie but a goodie: Stuff Museum People Say. “Bleed away from…

The articles, resources, places and ideas I enjoyed this week. The Smithsonian has a fashion blog. Museums + clothing, it’s like peanut butter and chocolate all over again. Since moving to Germany, I’ve encountered the national obsession with hazelnuts. So it’s no surprise that a German artist is creating installations from hazelnut pollen. The library…
