#ICYMI “Midnight Bloom,” an original #MixedMedia painting by IWAF Featured Artist Carolyn Johnson, was unveiled as the 2018 +Indian Wells Arts Festival Commemorative Print by Indian Wells Mayor Kimberly Muzik, festival producer Dianne Funk and the artist.

Presented to the City Council, Staff and audience members at the February 15th City Council Meeting, Funk proclaimed the 54”h x 39”h painting as magical and awe-inspiring as our desert itself, “Carolyn has captured a truly unique perspective that celebrates the wondrous beauty of life on the desert floor and our connection with the universe above, best seen for all of its splendor under the desert’s night sky.”

Known for her “soft carving” method, Johnson developed an entirely new signature technique she calls ‘pastel fusion’ to create the effervescent painting commissioned especially for the 16th annual Indian Wells Arts Festival. Both the original painting and its replication in commemorative posters will be available for purchase at the event, March 30, 31 & April 1 at the +Indian Wells Tennis Garden. www.IndianWellsArtsFestival.com

#SundayFunday with UK-based illustrator Richard Wilkinson who created a series of fantastical insects based on the most famous #StarWars characters... each is given a cheeky scientific name with Latin roots that relate to its sci-fi counterpart like Roboduobus Deoduobus for #R2D2 or Chaetebarbatus Bonamicii for #Chewbacca.

Using food as an unconventional canvas, Daniele Barresi creates awe-inspiring #sculptures out of fruits, vegetables, and cheese. The details that he’s able to achieve with tools—including knives, scalpels, peelers, and melon ballers—makes them look too good to eat.

This is neat! Through June 30, passengers traveling from #LaGuardia Airport’s Marine Air Terminal (#TerminalA) can visit #ArtPort Residency's "Landing Pages" kiosk for a story. Each of these compact tales is written by Lexie Smith and Gideon Jacobs over the length of a traveler’s flight, and delivered to their phone upon landing.

When a style became too popular (or he became too comfortable with it), he’d reinvent his approach. “All Programmes are destined to be abandoned,” he once wrote in his diary. “Just like all associations and alliances—They hang about one’s feet like heavy chains.”

A new blue! "...pigments need to be stable — not fading in light, or disintegrating with heat. And they need to be nontoxic. So when scientist Mas Subramanian accidentally discovered a new blue — meeting all those criteria — a few years back, he was hailed as a rock star in the world of colors. Now, he's on a quest for red."

#DidYouKnow The earliest known #mosaics were found in a Mesopotamian temple dating back to the 3rd millennium BC. Made up of ivory, seashells, and stones, these decorative, abstract pieces laid the groundwork for mosaics made thousands of years later in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.
