An abstract painter and extraordinary colorist, Sonia Delaunay applied her talents and theories to all areas of visual expression throughout her career. This exhibition celebrates her designs for textiles and fashion in the 1920s through the 1940s.

The exhibit runs March 18–June 5, 2011. I’m definitely going to check it out.

Some interesting links for you to peruse this weekend:

  1. How color works
  2. Saturn fly-by video
  3. Shabd Geode dress
  4. James Taylor on Sesame Street singing Jelly Man Kelly. I used to know it by heart when I was a kid.
  5. Korean children playing guitar perfectly. Makes me feel like they never get time to run around and play.
  6. LYS spring line.
  7. The new issue of Lonny Magazine.
  8. Slow dust devil lifts plastic sheets off of a strawberry field.

    Oh wow! I am excited to see this show! I didn’t realize it was on. Maybe I’ll head over this week. I just love those bathing beauties up there, and this would be a great field trip to kick off spring. : )
