Behind the scenes at CBM on YouTube

  • Donald Judd's "Untitled No. 1" in the 20th century gallery.

New videos on Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art's YouTube page go behind the scenes to illuminate the importance of exhibition installation, both in showing the works to their best advantage and in carrying the theme of the exhibition. Sometimes, such as in the installation of Crystal Bridges' sculpture by Donald Judd of stacked orange boxes, the space is every bit a part of the sculpture as the work itself.

Check out the video of Kevin Murphy, the former curator of American art who is now with Williams College in Massachusetts, in which he explains the color choices for the walls in the "Angels and Tomboys" exhibition to get an idea of the importance of setting, and a glimpse of the exhibit too. There's a second process video by Murphy as well, along with several videos about the George Washington exhibitions that were is at the museum through September! (Thanks for the correction, Dianne! I was a little mixed up!)

  • Make way for dumplings: Three Fold sets Main Street opening

    Dumpling and noodle maven Lisa Zhang said last week that her Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co. will open in bigger digs at 615 Main St. on Monday, Sept. 25. Three Fold will grow 1.5-fold, from 80 seats at its 215 Center St. location to 120 seats on Main and will offer something new: breakfast, featuring bao, steamed and filled buns.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
