Never one to shy away from drama, Violet the Art Dog does her best imitation of Jacques-Louis David’s Death of Marat. We’ve got a glance at David’s original, below left, and a reminder, below right, of when Violet decided to try imitating Leonardo Da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine.
I had an unusual weekend of travels, with a trip to Nyack, NY on Saturday, and a day trip to Newburgh, NY on Sunday. This is the 2nd time I’ve been to Newburgh (the first time was back in 2012), and both times I saw graffiti-covered trains running along the rail line that hugs the […]
I had to drive up to Nyack, New York today on an errand, and had a little bit of time to explore before returning home. I had lunch at the Temptations Cafe on Main Street, and as I made my way into the restaurant, I noticed they had an open-air patio out back, which was […]

I was visiting Ithaca for a few days this week, and was amazed by all of the great street art there. Here’s a huge mural featuring a hawk, painted by ARCY (Ryan Christenson), an artist based in Connecticut. From this angle, it appears that the hawk is giving some serious consideration to ordering a calzone […]
I’ve driven by this home on Penn Avenue South in Minneapolis before, but stopped to take a picture today. I love the patterned art painted on the exterior all around this home. Scroll down for more including some detail shots. My parents told me about this house years ago, as it’s not far from the […]
We’re big fans of Picasso’s art around here, and big fans of street art and graffiti as well … which lent itself to the question, what would it look like if Picasso did street art? Here’s a look at a hypothetical Picasso tag-fest in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC. If you want to follow this […]
