#TBT to an interactive #art show I curated a few years ago called I CAN DO THAT, where I placed supplies in front of each piece and invited viewers to physically change and/or copy the art. It was named the audience choice for "Best Art Exhibit" in the 20th anniversary edition of NewCity. Its long-awaited follow-up, LEXICON, is coming on June 17: http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/p/lexicon_10.html (Photo by Sophia Nahli Allison) #art #artists #contemporaryart #modernart #photography #painting #drawing #illustration #design #sculpture #installation #installationart #performanceart #poetry #writing #ink #streetart #chicago

And one of my favorite projects I came across this past year that's always worth revisiting: “Chinatown Pretty,” a celebration of the street style of [adorable!] seniors living in San Francisco's Chinatown. Posted by Jenny Lam at 6:00:00 AM · Email ThisBlogThis!
