Well. It seems to be Monday again, doesn't it? On with the art links, then!

Artist to check out: Adam Cvijanovic.

Visual arts: the Brooklyn Museum is on Flickr now, and there are some absolutely stunning images in their collection, including photos from the 1900 Paris Exposition.

Words: the languages of Native Americans are dying out, but people are trying to preserve them.

Music: what do you want played at your funeral? Apparently a lot of Brits want to hear "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." If this is true, it's wonderful.

More music (thanks to Cassandra for sending this in): the Glastonbury Festival is going green!

Architecture: the stadium for the London Olympics in 2012 might be "recycled" for use in the 2016 Olympics. I like the idea of the Olympics adopting a traveling circus model.

Art for right now: make some PaperFoldables at your desk and entertain your co-workers!

Hmmm…music for my funeral, eh? Well, to jazz is up a bit, we could always play Gimmie Dat Ding by the Pipkins. It would be uproarious, would it not? A hoot AND a holler, not just a hoot.

What would the soundtrack to your funeral be like?
