The world's largest outdoor arts festival is going on right now, and it's in rural Japan. (Tokomachi, to be specific.) It looks like it takes effort to get there, but is worth it!

Meanwhile, in London, gritters (aka guerilla knitters) have been busy gritting the tunnel. You have to see it to understand it.

A lot of amazing artistic creations seem to be coming out of Brooklyn these days. (I presume it's because the Club Creatures live there now.) Behold the Gamelatron, "the world's first and only fully robotic gamelan orchestra."

We end today with some incredible artists: Christopher Conn Askew, who creates gorgeous, lush prints I would buy if I could figure out how; Ann Carrington, who makes intricate portraits and objects with everyday items like buttons and safety pins; and Rhode Montijo, who brings you Skeletown! I especially like Wilfredo, the worried worry doll.
