Getty Images launched the “Lean In Collection” Monday in partnership with LeanIn.org, featuring more than in contemporary work and life
and Getty Images partner to create a collection of positive, power images of women.
“The most important thing for us is that you felt like the woman had agency, not like the image was happening to her, but she was the protagonist of her own story — they all should feel like the hero of their image," says Pam Grossman director of visual trends at Getty Images.

In 2005, Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks produced a 6 episode miniseries that spanned the period of expansion of the United States into the American West, from 1825 to 1890. Through fictional and historical characters, the series used two primary symbols--the wagon wheel and the Lakota medicine wheel -- to join the story of two families: one Native American, one White settlers, as they witnessed many of the 19th century's pivotal historical milestones. The award-winning Into The West
can now be seen in its entirety on YouTube

at alternative photographic processes – a molecular-level-look, that may even change history. Here is a NY Times profile

! What is it? Well, silly, it's a style of Gothic script, of course, used chiefly in the 14th and 15th centuries and so-called because it combines characteristics of the Gothic cursive style with the more formal "textura". Why do I know this? Because I've been surfing the mighty-wonderful Getty Art & Architecture Thesaurus

Beer makes me smart...Beer, me make art
After trying to make little "Golden Child" men out of Bud Lite cans Saturday, I checked the web for other beer inspired artforms. The results are range from the folky-Beer Label
art to cozy beer bottle
homes and dangerous beer can guns
. Even cash can be made...for hilarious rent woes
... to Big $$$ as with David Hockney's Pearl Blossom Highway
currently at the Getty Museum. Anyone else inspired by beer?
