Art History for Geeks and History for Flickr-ites

All Your Base Are Belong to Us

Drawn had a cool post that linked to “PaulTheWineGuy’s” flickr set for Understanding Art for Geeks. I had a good laugh at some of them, and remembered the days of “dark room art history slide shows”. So, after remembering the historical influence that gave art meaning….the question that it all got me to was, “What is the social problem that our generation is confronting through the creation of Art?”. I am blank here. Is our art only a reflection of the “antical” nature of our generation… and nothing more? Is it that the social problems are broad and have no dominant theme? What do you think?

Also on Drawn…. since history was mentioned…. please enjoy some of the photos on Flickr from the Library of Congress. The project is called The Commons… and the purpose is:

The key goals of this pilot project are to firstly give you a taste of the hidden treasures in the huge Library of Congress collection, and secondly to show how your input of a tag or two can make the collection even richer.

There are some really great photos like this one: Gravelly Range, Madison County, Montana (LOC) http://www.flickr.com/photos/library_of_congress/2179038972/in/set-72157603671370361

Also, doesn’t this guy kind of look like John Belushi?
