I wanted to share some treasure that I received in the mail recently from one of my kindergarten art students.

Taylen really loves to draw and is very talented.  I was surprised and delighted to receive two of his drawings the other day in the mail.  I wanted to share his images and the love he has for drawing!  His work reminds me of the Picasso quote “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment.

Painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas.

Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color.

How great is this?  Given the opportunity most kids would love to spread stickers everywhere!

The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room.

The installation is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12, at Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/01/yayoi-kusama-obiliteration-room/
