Oscars 2013: Daniel Day-Lewis Breaks Records and Seth MacFarlane's Ode to Boobs

Feb 25, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The 85th Academy Awards are officially over for another year; the gold statues have been handed out, the speeches recited and the gracious losing faces put to good use. This year's awards was hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, known for his sharp humor and across-the-board mockery, which probably put a few people on the edges of their seats with worry as to what he would say. His turn as host was actually pretty tame (for him anyway), save for a couple jokes that got people laughing nervously (guess it's still too soon to joke about Lincoln's assassination).... Read More

Feb 20, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart  |  1 Comment

Where art and commerce meet is a tricky intersection, especially when putting a price on street art which espouses social and political theory. Banksy, a British artist whose work speaks of these issues, is usually very elusive, but we would like to hear his opinion regarding an upcoming auction of one of his wall murals.... Read More

La Belle Vie: Multimedia Art by Slade Project Celebrates the Good Life

Feb 19, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart

Family often plays a part in life's most meaningful moments, with common bonds and experiences reinforcing love shared. These dynamics might play a hand in the complexity of the art pieces produced by Slade Project. The artistic team is comprised of a mother and her two sons, bringing their talents together to collaborate on mixed-media imagery that commemorates or tells the “story” of an individual(s), through photos and memorabilia. Although a fine art collection is always prized, creating some personal pieces for a home and for future generations can be more valuable than any Monet.... Read More

Henry Richardson's Artistic Genius: Creating Spheres From Sheets of Glass

Feb 18, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When Henry Richardson decided to be an artist, he opted out of art school and decided to take a more direct route delving right in. Self-taught, he started as a painter and eventually worked his way up to his current passion, glass sculpture. While many glass art is done by blowing or casting, Richardson instead fuses glass sheets together to create amazing orbs and towers. His method involves cutting arcs of glass that form rings, layering them to eventually form a perfect sphere.... Read More

5 minutesIn the film Beautiful Creatures, Gatlin, South Carolina might seem like a sleepy Southern town where nothing ever happens, but beneath the surface, there are strange and magical forces, rooted in the past, that are about to re-emerge in ways the townspeople can't even begin to imagine....

Feb 8, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  2 Comments

There are plenty of reasons to get excited over a new year but for me, there's nothing better than a whole slew of brand new movies that I cannot wait to see. I look forward to disappearing within a good flick about as much as some look forward to taking their new Bugatti Veyron for a test drive on a desert road. From the Sundance Film Festival's premiers to the many award shows, the beginning of every new year is filled with anticipation. Without further ado, here are the titles (in no particular order) that I'm having a hard time waiting for.... Read More
