New York -
Brooklyn painter Mickalene Thomas is receiving her first major show at the Brooklyn Museum. The New Jersey-born artist puts a female spin on art history while portraying a strong, highly eroticized vision of femininity.
An Iowa farmer found woolly mammoth fossils in his backyard in Oskaloosa. According to experts, the farmer may have an entire skeleton of a mammoth that died 14,000 years ago. He insists he is keeping his fossil treasure in his living room.
One of the installations set up as part of Origin Of The Universe, the first major exhibit from Mickalene Thomas. The inclusion of these "sets" serve to highlight the incredibly detailed process Thomas has in making her art: designing sets, making photos, creating collages from the photos, and finally, painting.
