January 31st is Inspire Your Heart With Art Day. The last day of January is designated as a time to elevate the heart and soul through observing and/or creating works of art.
How serendipitous. I was just marveling at the new Spring/Summer show from Alexander McQueen and the brilliance of building an entire collection inspired by wasps. Haute couture is more than fashion; it's high art.
I finally put together two shadow boxes filled with goodies from my visit last fall to the Alphonse Mucha exhibit at the National Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
This weekend I will be attending the opening of Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age: Highlights from the Detroit Institute of Arts at The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. I'm very fortunate in that my local museums often host wonderfully interesting and important exhibitions.
I sorely miss being able to create art. I'm hoping that my hand will soon heal sufficiently for me to resume my 3D artwork - even if it's slowly and steadily. Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly enjoying being creative with the blog, and the fellowship with all the wonderful ladies I've met since I started Spashionista Report nearly a year ago.
What will you create today?
