August 30, 2011 Appreciation

When you love an art object and then you learn about the how it is crafted, your appreciation for the artist increases exponentially.

The blankets are part of the Chihuly exhibit in TAM's largest gallery.  The lecture raised issues about globalization, market research, and the appropriation of cultural iconography.
