Please join us at the museum for the 2010 Short Film Festival. The festival will be held on April 17, at 8 PM, at our museum on the plaza.
The festival is an annual outdoor film and video event to celebrate the artistic and creative endeavors of people with different visions and levels of experience. More information is, as always, available on the museum’s event page.
I just got this link from a Google alert and thought I’d share. It looks like something I wrote was translated into another language and then translated back to English by a non-human bot. My favorite line, I think, is the “free, hands-on art labor for the minors”.
I love me a good funny. Below, a copy of the page. It does, though, reference our sustainability season as it was picked up in the Discovery Channel’s Treehugger site, which is pretty cool.
Media involvement in ASU Art Museum ‘s Shaping Sustainability season
Snap the image above to read the full article on the ASU Art Museum ‘s up-to-the-minute season of exhibitions entitled Delineate Sustainability It Holds exciting for us that so many people are besides interested therein subject one we all cognise is not rattlingly new to artists.
Come by the museum Tuesdays – Sat through Jan 2010 to see all of the exhibitions personally. An added fillip – the first Sabbatum of every month the museum holds free hands-on art labor for the minors! Cheque out our internet site calendar for dates and times.
I’ve lost track but I think there are only a few more days until the taping for Zombies vs Vampires, and we are inching towards being ready!
Paul and Tara help bloody up some zombie wear.
OMG apparently that is me on the left, terrifying poor Andrea our makeup artist extraordinaire. Sometimes I can’t help myself.
We dragged a museum preparator in to be a practice model – someone forgot to tell him to play dead ;) Another great make-up creation by Wendy!

ok it’s 3:30am which is 6:30am in New York and in any case it is way past my bedtime, so I’m signing off.
Yesterday, somewhere south of Phoenix, sound engineer Adam Murray recorded the subtle sounds of desert for Vampires vs Zombies. It was a hot, dry, crackly day and the incessant overhead plane volleys called for measured patience. I suffered many scratches as I ran, rubbed branched together, brushed against the bristled shrubbery, slithered, and otherwise performed noises for Adam’s listening machines. Luckily we encountered neither scorpions nor jumping cacti – dear desert, you are a prickly beast!
This week our skilled make-up artists have been making zombies in the gallery, and unleashing them on the unsuspecting public. Strangely every time we finish a zombie, it disappears, causing concern among the museum staff. So far, all staff are breathing and accounted for.

5 days left until the Zombies vs Vampires video showdown – don’t miss it!
This past Friday, I photographed a number of ASU students who participated in the International Day of Climate Action with the environmentally-conscious organization 350. In preparation for the main event that was held Saturday, October 24, the students painted our iconic gold A on A Mountain a really, really vibrant green. On Saturday, a fairly large group of people went back and spelled out a human 3-5-0 in front of the green A for photo ops.
You can see the main event photos on Facebook, but here are a few that I got of the painting session. And a very green A.
ASU Art Museum has such nice friends… check out the blog post from RailLife.com! Nick writes about all kids of great activities, restaurants and more that are in and around the light rail line. There’s a rail stop close by the museum, at Mill Ave and 3rd Street. Just walk south, across University, and you’re here!
Here’s a sneak peek into makeup sessions last week at ASU Art Museum for my upcoming Vampires vs Zombies video, featuring 55 local zombies and vampires, not to mention the talents of local make-up artists. Our vampires will be red-eyed and thirsty, with bloodstained lips.
