Harlem Jazz and the Art of Equity

We’re celebrating Christmas in July this week, but we get it. You’re not actually going to re-hang your stockings and get that mistletoe back into action. As an alternative, we recommend playing a different kind of music, and decorating with some Harlem Jazz art! This post will explore our favorite Harlem Jazz art from saxophones to lead singers. And just a hint: even though you leave the stockings put away, we argue that it’s never a bad time for a good Christmas cookie!

Eugene Boudin, Happy Summer Birthday!

If you missed Eugene Boudin’s birthday on July 12th, don’t fret. He was actually born in 1824 and isn’t around to receive your birthday greetings! We’re still celebrating, though, because the French-born impressionist Eugene Boudin created art perfect for summer! Get ready for some sailboats, beach scenes, and some great gift ideas for someone in your life who is still around to have a birthday celebration!

Expressionist Art: Time to Feel Your Feelings

Self-expression may be pretty popular right now, but it’s far from a new idea. In fact, the “Express Yourself” movement, among artists at least, started early on in the 20th century, if not before. The artists of the Expressionist era were all about feeling your feelings, even the uncomfortable ones. Expressionist art isn’t afraid to distort reality or use a ton of paint for the sake of emotion.

If we’re being totally fair, you can find emotionally expressive art in every single artistic era (after all, it’s what artists do best!) But the official expressionists were a special group. We’ll highlight a few in this post.
