Artists are continually breaking the barriers between two-dimensional and three-dimensional art.

Newer forms of art have emerged, like installations, which transform an entire space or room and can be experienced instead of just seen by the viewer. [Read article]

Are you scared yet?

That time of year is approaching once again. The days are no longer endless, and tank tops are being replaced with long sleeves. But along with chilly nights comes one juicy holiday.
