Nancy Spero letter to Lucy R. Lippard, Oct. 29, 1971
Staying hydrated this summer doesn’t have to mean sipping on bottle plastic chemically enhanced drinks. The plastic is bad for the environment but also terrible for your bodies.
Instead, try a more natural route with Kusmi Iced Teas. They are easy to make – brew each tea bag like a normal cup of tea, then pour it over ice. Viola! These French artisan / Russian blends of teas come in a variety of flavors:
-Exclusive blends such as the ever popular Anastasia with notes of bergamot, lemon, and orange blossom
-Flavored green teas such as the Imperial Label, with orange and cinnamon notes
-Wellness teas: Detox, Sweet Love (a favorite), Be Cool and Boost

Mike Giant’s Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder.
Opening this Friday, July 20th at FFDG in San Francisco, California is Mike Giant’s long awaited solo show, “Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder.” The show will feature brand new work from Giant in his trademark black and white, tightly rendered style as well as featuring a rare glimpse at Giant’s array of skateboard designs he illustrated from the 1980s. Mike Giant will be in attendance for the opening, which is certain to be one of the biggest West Coast events of the year.
Pattern: Ice Flowers
“These peculiar natural phenomena are formed on new layers of sea ice from saturated water vapors that come up from under the ice through cracks. In contact with the cold air, the vapors start to freeze and the salt on the surface of the ice begins to crystallize, serving as a base for the sublimated water to build off of. The ‘petals’ of ice flowers are very delicate and will come off when touched. They usually form in sunlight and typically are visible in the early mornings or in shaded areas.”
Can Women in the Art World “Have It All”?
Responses to The Atlantic’s Contentious Article
ARTINFO reached out to high-achieving women in the arts with varied backgrounds and career paths, both mothers and non-mothers, with the hopes that a few would be willing to comment on their own personal experiences balancing work, family life, and the choices that have allowed them to pursue their goals.
We received an overwhelming response — so overwhelming, in fact, that in another article we plan to publish the complete responses. Some clear themes emerged in the experiences of the women who wrote to us, however, and what follows is a selection of voices of those trying to manage what is by all accounts a difficult balancing act on the peculiar terrain of art.
