Thanks to last week’s guest blogger Tricia Van Eck for her inspiring series of posts on the Occupy movement and the political and aesthetics implications of happiness, which suggested that a concern with “being happy” may not only be vital to the world of art, but to the future of this country as well. Keep up with Tricia’s ongoing “Happiness Project” at 6018 NORTH by visiting her website here.
Next up, we have San Francisco Bay Area art writer DeWitt Cheng, who will focus on several under-recognized Bay Area artists during his two-week blogger-in-residence stint, beginning with this afternoon’s post on artist and “creature designer” Cyrus Tilton. DeWitt contributes regularly to Art Ltd., Artillery, East Bay Express and VisualArtSource.com, and occasionally to Sculpture and ArtBusiness.com. He has degrees in art history and studio art, with experience in curating, teaching, and freelance writing. You can find his personal blog at DeWittCheng.com.
