Mad Quickies: Kehinde Wiley Art, Bibliomania, Infinite Galaxy Puzzle, Scorsese Supercut and More!

You guyz- I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Let me add a few lovely diversionary moments to it. Here we go!

Absolutely stunning and compelling… Gothic and Renaissance art like you’ve probably never seen before by Kehinde Wiley. Via Dr. Ray

Here’s something wonderful I found today. “Open House for Butterflies” is author Ruth Krauss’s final and loveliest collaboration with Maurice Sendak.

Starring Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara: “Netflix’s White Rabbit Project Looks Like a Goofier Version of MythBusters” and is slated for December 9th. Via Critical Dragon

A “violent, irresistible, unconquerable passion”, Bibliomania was a dark desire for books that gripped Europe in the 1880s. There’s even a page about it, “It’s Beyond My Control” in The Journal of Art Crime.[nods to Brian!]

The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon seeks a Program Coordinator to support the exponential growth of our global initiative. And good luck to the person who lands that position! Via Beth

If you’re a fan of jigsaw puzzles, this will surely blow your mind. An ‘Infinite’ Galaxy Puzzle That Can Be Built in Any Direction. It’s by the genius team at Nervous System and you can assure your future mind-scramble by pre-ordering here.


I’m sharing this with you simply because I found it extraordinary and beautiful. And I’m a sucker for super cuts, so there’s that.
