Art For Obama book

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Products on Tuesday 6 October 2009

Previous Guest Editor of Lost At E Minor, Shepard Fairey, and Jennifer Gross have a fantastic new book out through Abrams entitled, Art For Obama. Featuring artwork from more than a hundred International artists, including fellow Lost At E Minor Guest Editor Ron English [illustration above], Lukas Ketner, Kwaku Alston, Maya Hayuk, and Lisa Anne Auerbach, many of the works were created before the election to raise money for the Obama campaign. Pieces range from fashion to installation, and most refer back to Obama’s likeness. This will be a great book to look back on many years from now. And it’s a guilt free purchase, as all of the authors’ proceeds will be donated to Americans for the Arts charity.

Tim Delaughter’s unabashed joy is infectious enough to cultivate a Dead Head-esque cult of Jesus-robe-wearing followers, who have, throughout the band’s history, been allowed to join in on the on-stage festivities.

Are you better off learning to code, or learning to speak a new language?

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in Tech on Thursday 6 August 2015

What an epic question this is: to learn to code vs learning a foreign language. Most people are likely to have an immediate opinion one way or the other, but can usually point out the advantages of both.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Events on Wednesday 13 May 2015

Nicknamed the ‘grandmother of performance art’, Marina Abramović is unlike any other artist in the world today. She has pushed boundaries (and usually broken them), explored relationships to their core, and even allowed the public to harm her – all in the name of art.
