"It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, or so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere through which we look - to affect the quality of the day. That is the highest of the arts." --Henry David Thoreau

'Architecture, here and elsewhere, acts as part of a larger social and economic ecology, or else it elects to be a luxury, meaningless except to itself.'
Great quote from this article on the architecture of Medellin, Colombia.

interesting article about Anish Kapoor's new tower in East London. The article raises interesting questions about the finances involved in the creation of public art. Also based on the photographs of the tower I agree with Douglas Murphy's assessment that it lacks the magic of Kapoor's best work, which is a shame considering what an enormous and costly thing it is.

Anne Wright, my amiga from Wellesley (we spent a memorable thanksgiving dinner together in the dining hall followed by a dorm room viewing of the Ewok Adventure), has started this great contemporary arts org in SLC. I so wish we had something like this in good ol'Spokane.
