Happy arty Monday, everyone!

Did you know that The Tempest may have started life as a musical production? Hm. I'm imagining a song about the brave new world.

The Taj Mahal is in a precarious state, due to pollution and erosion and whatnot.

I had not heard of the Barnes collection of art before. The history of the collection is fascinating, as is the description of the display technique.

Art via Tumblrs: check out 365 Abstracts (self-explanatory) and Windoodles (dry erase markers on windows -- vandalism of the best kind!).

And finally, a piece on digitally storing one's analog keepsakes. I really like one of the comments on the article:  "There’s also a second class of possession that’s just kept around for the memory of it and not the actuality." (Can you tell we're cleaning out our house these days?)
