Art Everywhere is a cool little project we stole from the brits, and i gotta say, besides the piss-poor choices and circa 1990’s website, it sure has turned out great. perhaps most importantly, instead of the commercial propaganda and social refuse typically displayed, art really is everywhere! please feel free to share your images in the comments section below.

“So says Amy Poehler, and she isn’t alone in thinking Cheers is pretty much perfect. On the thirtieth anniversary of the show’s premiere, GQ sat down with just about everyone who made it and asked them about creating Sam and Diane, the birth of Norm!, Woody Harrelson’s one-night stands, and many other secrets of what became TV’s funniest guy show of all time”.

“This summer, Haptic Lab has partnered with the Museum of Modern Art’s Design Store to create a special meta-ship: a Sailing Ship Kite that resembles a old-timey schooner. Like the rest of our fleet, this ship really flies in a strong breeze and can be displayed decoratively indoors as a playful mobile. Tri-color Sailing Ship Kites are available exclusively from the MoMA Design Store.”  only $40.

from Daily Digest News-

“The International Sun/Earth Explorer 3 (ISEE-3) satellite, was originally launched into a heliocentric orbit on August 12, 1978 to study interactions between Earth’s magnetic field and the solar wind. In 1997, after 20 years of service, NASA suspended communications with the satellite but did make status checks in 1999 and 2008.

In May of this year, 2 way communication with ISEE-3 was reestablished. With NASA’s cooperation the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, a group of citizen scientists working out of a former McDonalds at NASA’s Ames Research Facility, connected with the the satellite in the hope of using it for scientific data collection.

After successfully firing the satellite’s thrusters, however, they discovered that the craft had run out of fuel.

The good news is that ISEE-3 is still transmitting data and this weekend its orbit will approach the Moon in its closest pass to Earth in decades.

Thanks to Google’s project “A Spacecraft for All”, anyone with a Chrome web browser, will be able to receive data from the satellite in real time as it passes by.

On Sunday, August 10, at 10:30 PT/1:30 ET Google will webcast all of the data from the spacecrafts Lunar fly by along with interviews with the Reboot team and the original ISEE-3 Flight Director.

over on Artspacethey had a great write-up called Art 101: How to Pronounce Artists’ Names that does exactly that. it should definitely be expanded upon however, considering it’s the first of it’s kind that i’ve stumbled upon anyway.  a useful and necessary tool for anyone who needs to give a public presentation on art or artists.
