The Minnesota Center for Book Arts has created a program similar to the WACTAC! It’s goal is too form a council which helps the By Design program work more efficiently. It has three seasons, summer, fall, and spring, and hopes to bridge teen art making at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts with other teens and the artistic community. Click here for more info.
THURSDAY MAY 29TH! 7:30! This inaugual event has been organized by It girl Liana Simonds as a showcase for the young musical talent in the Twin Cities. Unfortunately these fine specimens (above) won’t make it. It’ll be featuring: Best Friends Forever. I saw these guys in a basement, and let me tell you, they managed to make the Interstate Highway System, Lincoln and that basement seem like the coolest thing in the world. Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelle’s. A 6 piece (wow!) band that is defined as “folk/fusion/ghettotech”, let me tell you, there are some hotties in this band. [...]
Gap and the Whitney Museum of American Art have teamed with some of my favorite artists to create some cool Tee’s for Men and Women.

Featured artists tees are : Hanna Liden Chuck Close Jeff Koons Marylin Minter Kenny Scharf Glenn Ligon Sarah Sze Kiki Smith Barbara Kruger I must admit I am not one to usually enjoy art and retail or art and advertising but after I heard [...]
I spent a month assembling my duct tape suit for prom. Via minneapoline.
I’m having a go at ceramics this semester. Here’s my favorite piece so far. It’s an abstracted sculpture of a cat and it was featured in the 2008 Minnesota State Visual Arts Exhibition.

We have been so busy planning and hosting our 20 Under 20 exhibition that we haven’t had time to plug the By Design exhibition of high school artists at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. By Design is a really awesome program where you can learn a variety of artistic processes that relate to making books – printmaking (screenprinting, letterpress, and more), paper making, and other great things that you could only get your hands on through MCBA. So after you check out their exhibition, consider applying for the By Design program. Over and out.
As part of 20 Under 20, WACTAC’s series of juried art exhibitions, we organized a graffiti battle. To prevent snitchery we didn’t invite the public to watch, but you can see the flicks on Chunderman’s flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24770588@N02/

I am extremely saddened that one of my favorite artists of all time died today. Robert Rauschenberg was a pioneer, a visionary, and one of the greatest artists of the last decade. Throughout his years, Rauchenberg pushed the definition art and blurred the lines of the categories that separated painting, sculpture, and dance. In memoriam, take some time and check out his prolific body of work that spans over 60 years. Here’s an article in today’s NY Times.

Thanks, audience for not laughing at my jokes, even though they were hilarious. If you’d laughed it would’ve just expanded my ego, which is never a good thang. We are sitting here toiling in St. Paul; we’re counting up all the many ballots (read: we’re making our underpaid intern Emmanuel count the ballots while we, the masterminds behind WACTAC mingle with our judges and crowd). Aboot to announce the weiners! See you all L8R!
In luv with Cali? Welcome to the club. Club Med that is. (Insert Segue here) Barr, a certain Brendan Fowler whois from none other than LA,spouts wisdoms through spoken word in an effeminate stage demeanor backed byloud-asz beats. (and he’s cute too)
