Get Inspired

31 Mar

Recently, a number of leading foundations including Ford, Rockefeller, Prudential and Rasmuson have taken a stand in the fight to support the art world. In September of 2005, these foundations founded United States Artists, spawning the creation of USA Projects, “a creative community that connects people with artists and helps them to make tax-deductible contributions to projects in the performing, visual, media and literary arts.”

Sue McNally plays a vital role with her contribution to the USA Projects. Her individual project, This Land is My Land, has been extremely successful. For over 20 years, Sue has been traveling throughout the United States, creating large scale paintings of various American landscapes, capturing small towns, remote areas and even big cities.

 “I feel most comfortable in the quiet of the wilderness and have a deep admiration for nature, its strength and its beauty; my work is inspired by the land and the introspection that accompanies me when spending time in nature.”-Sue McNally

Get involved today. Read more about United States Artists and in particular, Sue’s USA Project, This Land is My Land today

Looking for an activity to stimulate your mind?

You will be blown away by the New Museum‘s current exhibition, The Ungovernables

This New Museum Triennial contains over 50 participants, all “born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US” (newmuseum.org).

This is only the 2nd triennial at the New Museum

This exhibition “acknowledges the impossibility of fully representing a generation in formation and instead embraces the energy of that generation’s urgencies” (newmuseum.org).

The artwork in this particular exhibition displays controversial themes including “military dictatorships, the emergence of integrated world capitalism, regional and global economic crises, the rise of fundamentalism, and international interventions as well as failures to intervene”, making the exhibition truly unique (newmuseum.org).

 “The Ungovernables,” then, “is about rejecting incorporation and monetization, recognizing heat, transforming potential, and offering possibilities while maintaining self-awareness, humility, and humor” (newmuseum.org).

Read More About ‘The Ungovernables’ today and plan your trip to NYC to see this one-of-a-kind exhibition in person.
