A little snow on the ground: not enough to play in but too much to ignore.

So we turn inward, perhaps, to books.

Friday (October 23) is the MCBA Prize Reveal and a Live Artist Talk at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, which you can attend in your sweats and with a snack, if you wish.

And if that whets your appetite, you can find out about their extensive offering of virtual workshops on their website.

If you want to wander a little further afield, you can treat yourself to a class presented by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

"Like other kinds of design," says the course description,  "fashion thrives on productive tensions between form and function, automation and craftsmanship, standardization and customization, universality and self-expression, and pragmatism and utopian vision. It exists in the service of others, and it can have profound consequences—social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental."

"Fashion As Design" is offered through Coursera, and more information on the class is offered here.

New York Magazine offered an interesting article about the effects of long-term minimalist style, plus Marie Kondo, plus pandemic on the way we decorate our homes. You can find the article,  The new maximalism: The next big thing in home design is overstuffed, garish, and glorious, here.
