It is easy to follow, but it is uninteresting to do easy things. We find out about ourselves only when we take risks, when we challenge and question.
— Magdalena Abakanowicz
Artist’s Birthdays, an ongoing series of posts by artist Michi Colacicco is a fun way to get a bit of art history into your day and mark the achievements of artists of every stripe. We launched this feature on our Facebook page with a quote and images of work by Magdalena Abakanowicz on the occasion of her birthday, which was June 20th.
Subsequent posts have featured Peter Paul Rubens, David Hockney, and Amadeo Modigliani, and we’re looking forward to many more in the upcoming year. Follow the Facebook page for birthdays as they happen, and if you’d like to see these posts in our other social media channels, let us know and we’ll look into expanding the feature accordingly.
