This “google doodle” is just one in a long series of variants that have celebrated a multitude of topics that feature art familiar to AM readers including Murakami, Norman Rockwell, and Jackson Pollock.

Jones performances held in 1982 at The Kitchen, which were executed in real time during Jones’ dances with the sound of the brushstrokes serving as the only thing the audience heard. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Haring’s early […]
