For Art's Sake
The outsider art show at The Museum of Everything features work that's stunning in its complexity, diversity, and depth.
MIAMI – Big butts and cowgirls! Crystal fries and popcorn! Paper tigers and dog houses! There is so much awesome art down in Miami this weekend. Here's what you can't miss.
BURNING MAN, Nevada – As the festival is in full swing, there are no spectators, only participants. Edward Griffith gets in the groove.
MARFA, Texas – The newbies want to create an oasis away from the America they fled, and it's no surprise why they picked Marfa. It's in the middle of nowhere.
STOCKBRIDGE, Massachusetts – It was time explore some culture. Because it was raining and there was no laser tag emporium. So we headed to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
NEW ORLEANS – A photographer makes her hurricane Katrina story into a picture book for grown-ups.
BRISTOL, UK – The graffiti and street art scene is thriving west of London, led by Banksy, supported by the government, and instigated by turf wars.
MARFA, Texas – I'm no hippie, but the communal vision was so charming that I felt like I'd stepped into a latter-day Peaceable Kingdom that was on the verge of erupting into a very cool party.
BERLIN, Germany – A monolithic Nazi bunker (used as a Red Army prison, Cuban fruit storage unit nicknamed Banana Bunker, then '90s underground fetish club) caught the eye of a prominent art collector named Christian Boros before catching the wrecking ball.
PARIS – I could hear strange sounds from inside. I imagined the soundtrack of a monster's belly, the muffled noises coming from visitors trapped and gurgling inside.
