From The Archives: Maryland Renaissance Festival 2008

Posted by scottstead on Feb 21, 2010 in Art, Travel
Out of place and out of time, the Maryland Renaissance Festival happens every August through October in Annapolis, MD. I’ve attended the last two years in a row and I have to say – it’s a lot of fun for anyone of any age. Eat a turkey leg like a carnivorous knight, have a beer straight out of a cask and right into your goblet, or eat a variety of foods on a stake. The performers are phenomenal from sword play, to madrigals, drum bands to creepy creatures strolling around the grounds. Here’s some video that I found lying around from 2008. I hope you enjoy.

Multiverse, a light sculpture created by American artist Leo Villareal especially for the National Gallery of Art. I snapped this one while rolling down the moving sidewalk with my pal Amanda visiting from Colorado. I love this piece.

Art Is Everything: National Gallery of Art

Posted by scottstead on Aug 23, 2009 in Art, Vlog
Even something as mundane as a moving sidewalk at the National Gallery of Art has the potential to be a piece of art including, one of my favorites, this installation: Multiverse, a light sculpture created by American artist Leo Villareal especially for the National Gallery of Art. One of my favorite pasttimes is trying to guess how many LED’s were used. Can you guess? Give it a visit, and give it a shot. The video gets more exciting about 40 seconds in, I promise.

This is the cascading waterfall inside the concourse at the National Gallery. Water cascades down the glass creating a pleasant dining experience at the nearby Cascade Cafe.
