Wednesday, February 12, 2020: Close-Up on Seuss

The photos below were taken during a drizzly afternoon at the Springfield Museum’s Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. This enchanting public art installation, featuring Dr. Seuss’s most beloved characters, is the work of artist Lark Grey Dimond-Cates who is also Theodor Geisel’s step-daughter. Horton the Elephant, the subject of all but one close-up, was not harmed during the photography session.

Thursday, December 12, 2019: Elliot Erwitt and Me

(Click on images to enlarge.)

Elliott Erwitt is one of my favorite photographers so I was all too happy to catch the excellent show of his work that is currently on display at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts here in Springfield. The images above were inspired by another wonderful photographer, Peter of .Documenting.the.Obvious fame, and taken moments before a guard told me that photography was a no-no.

On my way out, I caught the placard below explaining Erwitt’s approach to museum photography. I left feeling that the master would have looked kindly on my transgression :)

Sunday, June 9, 2019: Fresh Paint Springfield Wrap

A dozen artists — one from as far away as Australia — assorted friends, and a supporting cast of residents from ages 3–103, have just finished making Springfield a little more lively and a lot more beautiful than it was two weeks ago. From May 26 until today, nine previously nondescript walls bordering on eyesore status were transformed into vibrant murals through the alchemy of artistic vision and labor, and countless gallons and spray cans of paint — not to mention, a box store full of brushes, rollers, and masking tape, and enough paint-splattered clothes to start a new fashion label. You can get the full picture at Fresh Paint Springfield but in the meantime, here is Pixetera‘s admittedly limited take on what amounted to one big paint party. (Click on images to enlarge.) 

Mural artists in order of appearance:

#2-5: Wane One
