Where's Art: evaluating your social media through the lens of art

Aaron Kloss

It feels like at least six years in Pandemic Time ... but in actuality it's only been six months. 

But artists have been hard at work responding to these times through their art, trying to figure out how to survive financially, and how to maintain their creative and economic health.

Some are doing a canvas a day to keep their artistic and marketing chops honedd, but even if you're not an artist yourself, Annie Dugan is suggesting you take a look at your social media feed through the lens of art.

Evaluate it in terms of line, shape, color composition: what do you think?  Can you use your social media feed as a journaling tool as you navigate these times?

And speaking of art in the times of pandemic, check out this story about the restoration of Thomas Gainsborough's iconic masterpiece, The Blue Boy and get a behind-the-scenes peek at the process.

The Huntington Art Museum's Project Blue Boy began three years ago. Senior painting conservator Christina O'Connell used high-tech techniques to assess what could be done for the painting. She spent 500 hours going over every brushstroke on Thomas Gainsborough's 1770 masterpiece.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
