In college I pursued a double major of Theater and Computer Science which, while adding a bit of time to my education, gave me a taste of left-brain / right-brain synergy that I've sought in my work ever since.

The team at Brooklyn launched ArtShare in November 2007, and the response was immediately positive. By adding this app Facebook users are able to rotate works of art on their profile, showing their favorites or just items that pique their interest. The app even works with Facebook Pages, and has been added to the Walker’s page here. (Like the Walker? Become a fan of our page!)

If you’re a Facebook user, give ArtShare a try and let us know what you think!

A big thanks to Shelley and Michael for making the application so open and also for working with other institutions to bring everyone online – they were responding to inquiries from us on day one and ready to help integrate our collection.

Marathon + Art

Yesterday saw another running of the Twin Cities Marathon, and it couldn’t have been a nicer day for it. Robot Math was up early enough to snap this picture as the pack surged past the Walker. A huge number of the runners are not from the cities – I can’t help but wonder what they […]
