Oh, Hello Hotties! This lovely image is a print in the MIA’s permanent Prints and Drawings collection called Kunstschau Wien by Berthold Löffler and Albert Berger of Austria. Please do visit their awesome website; it’s rich with information! Steve and I became members which is only $6.25 a month or $75 per year. That won’t even buy you one lunch per week, but it will get you and your fam. into a lot of the museum.
While you have been doing other things I have been researching books for our December reading, aka Hotties at the Museum. Do you know how many artists there are at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and how many books about or by those artists there are? A whole lotty lot, is what. Anyway, I have barely skimmed the surface of books about or by artists, but here are some that sound good to me. Remember, we’re picking our own books, and if you’re so inclined,write a review of your book and it will be posted HERE, at Books 4 Hotties. Yay! Also, I quickly departed from just artists that are at the museum because of the VAST amount of books available, but I’m not done looking yet.
We would like to plan the November meeting for December 5, but I don’t know where yet. If someone wants to host that would be great, or we can meet somewhere like the ill-fated Hell’s Kitchen. Please send in your suggestions ASAP!
