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!)

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
