An outdoor event celebrating the art of floral design is taking over the paths around Meadow Brook Hall this weekend.

Now in its sixth year, Art in the Elements invites florists to create their own large-scale floral art installations based on a theme. This year’s theme is music ranging “from Motown to Mozart, techno to Dolly Parton.” 

Floral is an emerging art form here in the United States,” says Laura Daluga, a fourth-generation florist who is the chair of Art in the Elements and general manager of Flowers for Dreams Detroit.

It’s very much one and has been one for a very long time in most

The Smithsonian is one of the world’s largest and most well-known museum complexes. With 19 museums and a zoo, it houses an extremely wide collection of over 150 million scientific, historic, and art objects—and that number continues to grow. Recently, the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) gained a large acquisition of rare photos and objects that completely transformed its holdings, significantly enhancing the diversity of its collection of early American photography.

The new addition comprises 286 objects from the 1840s to the mid-1920s that are split into three primary groupings. The first consists of works produced by early African American daguerreotypists James P. Ball, Glenalvin Goodridge, and Augustus Washington. Between them, they have

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – While many businesses have struggled to get off the ground over the past year, Letura Idigima has found a model that works well in a pandemic and it continues to benefit those she’s aimed to help since the beginning.

She opened Art Bus LNK about a year ago, a remodeled school bus she uses to bring creative services to neighborhoods around Lincoln.

Now she’s opened what’s known as The Bus Stop in the Turbine Flats building. It’s a bright and clean space that’s equipped with mediums that span further than what’s possible on the bus.

“Expose kids to different types of art,” Idigima said. “Whether that be a Cricut machine or photography and photo printing and it’s the same concept as the bus, it’s a free opportunity for kids to explore art.”

In the year since it’s been open, the Art Bus has already served hundreds
