From Paris To Madness

The Passagen-Work blog has been getting a bit more traffic the last two days. Perhaps that's because this week's quotes come from Paris Hilton and Jennifer Aniston, whereas last week I was going with Nietzsche all the way (five posts in a row).

I'll have to work Pamela back in somehow too...

UPDATE: Actually, the celebrity names above are only partly accountable for the rise in traffic. It looks like the "Decades of Influence" exhibition that Passagen-Work is part of is also driving traffic from within the museum space itself. Here's the Denver Post's take on the exhibition:
What seems clear is that Colorado can claim no artist of the same far-reaching influence as conceptual sculptor Bruce Nauman, a New Mexico resident, or Ed Ruscha, a longtime Los Angeles painter. But a few come close.

Clay sculptor Betty Woodman, who lived and worked in Boulder for a portion of every year from 1956 through 1998, is featured in a current retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, a feat no other Colorado artist has achieved.

DeAndrea is ensconced in art-history books for his pioneering hyper-realism, and video and Internet artist Mark Amerika, another member of the CU-Boulder art faculty, has been named one of the top 100 innovators by Time magazine.
