Art At Work: Day of the Dead, cover book class

As you learned this past week on this crap blog, I’m the janitor at the Weekly Volcano World Headquarters. And for the entire month of November, the Weekly Volcano brainiacs asked me to review their office art as well as office art around Tacoma for an art blog series playing off Art at Work month in Tacoma. Yes, my name is Art. I work for a living. It’s a crap idea, but as I said before, I could use the extra $7.50 a week.

The Volcano sent me to Endocrine Consultants Northwest to review a piece of art.

11-1 FLOWER PAINTING: This lovely piece of art hangs in the waiting room at Endocrine Consultants Northwest. Standing before it is like inhabiting a poem that tantalizes with its subdued imagery. I've seen flower paintings before, and do not need to be told again of a flower's beauty. To take this much time to look at a plant requires a careful attention, which I do not have.

Today, the lushy chick in the corner office with the Mazzy Star posters plastered everywhere asked me to paste the Volcano’s Art at Work picks for the day:
Art at Work Month: Sunday, Nov. 1

November 2009 marks the eighth anniversary of Art at Work: Tacoma Arts Month. There is something for everyone to enjoy throughout the month: lectures, music, dance performances, readings, workshops, theater performances, visual art exhibits and more.

Here are today’s highlights:

Tacoma Art Museum and Centro Latino host a free Day of the Dead community party from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Artist KaCe Whitacre shows you how to fold pages to make a single signature soft cover book from 2-4 p.m. at A2Z Studio. The cost is $5.
