I spend a great deal of time looking at art throughout my day. This isn’t really a surprise since it is part of my job! But, the great part about my job is that looking at art all day is something that I would do even if I wasn’t being paid to do it.
So I thought I would share some of my favorite places to learn about new and contemporary art! I have listed some of my all time favorite blogs and websites for all things art. Some sites are more about the images where as others are more about the words, but there is a little something for everyone out there. These are in no particular order as I could never discern a favorite between all of these!
My Modern Met is a collaborative site where many people contribute quick thoughts on works from across the world. I love coming here throughout the day and seeing a new post almost every time! The works range from huge public art installations to tiny drawings on the tops of pins.
The title says it all! The content on this site is mainly managed by one person, so it is like you are getting a little insight into their loves and likes each time you visit. The content is VERY image heavy but I find a new artist that I fall in love with here almost every day!
The art historian in me sort of nerds out on this site each time I see it pop up on my screen. Every entry is a masterpiece and the site author gives us a mini art history class on each one in only 15-30 seconds! So jump over and get a little refresher on a Michelangelo today!
This site is relatively new to me so I am still learning what I love about it each time I visit. I especially love that they break down art medias so that you can focus on just painting or sculpture each time you visit!
Many of you may have already heard of this site, but I can’t let it go as it has been a place I always return to. Hi-Fructose has been a magazine publication since 2005 and since the dawn of blogging and the internet they have come to include their knowledge on a blog for all of us to enjoy until the next issue comes out!
Please enjoy some art today!
