"Piss Christ" Vandalized After Christian Protest Against "Blasphemy"
When New York artist Andres Serrano plunged a plastic crucifix into a glass of his own urine and photographed it in 1987 under the title Piss Christ, he said he was making a statement on the misuse of religion. Controversy has followed the work ever since, but reached an unprecedented peak on Palm Sunday when it was attacked with hammers and destroyed after an "anti-blasphemy" campaign b... read full post picked by B-MoreRavensFan 6 months ago

The model behind the famous "tennis girl" picture has revealed that she has little interest in tennis, had to borrow the gear from friends and family, and that the tennis balls were for her dog.

Guillermo del Toro’s amazing creatures
Although del Toro makes suspenseful movies, he often seems less like a disciple of Alfred Hitchcock than of Hieronymus Bosch. “I don’t see myself ever doing a ‘normal’ movie,” del Toro said. “I love the creation of these things—I love the sculpting, I love the coloring. Half the joy is fabricating the world, the creatures.” picked by plurk 8 months ago

New Edition Of 'Huckleberry Finn' Will Eliminate Offensive Words
Saying they want to publish a version that won't be banned from some schools because of its language, two scholars are editing Mark Twain's classic Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to eliminate uses of the "N" word and replace it with "slave."

 The Birth of the Arts
The Birth of the Arts
throughout human history and around the world, our species has displayed an undying impulse to create art—to adorn ourselves, our artifacts, and our surroundings; to make music, dance, dramatize, and poeticize. And we often spend vast quantities of time, energy, and material resources doing so. What lies behind the age-old, persistent human urge to make the ordinary extraordinary? picked by 2manyusernames 10 months ago

Somewhere in NYC there's an abandoned subway station, "unfinished, unused and undiscovered."

Calling All Penis Artists! (careful@work)
Paintings can be of any subject and in any style, so long as they were painted with a penis (if the artist doesn’t have a penis, the artist is free to use someone else’s). Participants are urged to exercise extreme caution when painting in order to avoid bodily injury. All paints should be patch-tested to ensure they are safe for use on sensitive areas. picked by suebe 1 year ago
