Annie Dugan has a bunch of ideas for your couch-potato self over the holidays ...
Last week, she recommended Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art by Mary Gabriel.
This week, she's passing along Goodbye to Tenth Street by Irving Sandler, a novel perhaps composed of the "juicy bits" and uncorroborated gossip he chose not to put in his non-fiction work.
And if that's not enough to keep you busy, Annie, a Duluth Huskies fan, was utterly enraptured by an article in the New York Times about the Portland Trailblazers gameday poster collaboration with local artists to not only promote the games, but showcase the "local aesthetic." The posters have become collectors items and some of the proceeds go to area non-profits. Annie is looking for introductions to Duluth Huskies' management so she can pitch the idea of something similar here.
