AP Art: Shows and Contests

The Brooklyn Museum is currently showing a terrific exhibition on the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei that I would highly suggest visiting (along with the installation by street artist SWOON).  The video above shows some of the scope of the show and the difficulties putting it together with Weiwei not being allowed out of China at the moment.

Also any undergraduate students who are taking AP Art next year show check out the video below of a Masterclass artist and director Julian Schnabel for the Young Arts program because the contest is now open for next year. There are categories such as: photography, fine arts, writing, and film so whatever your strengths are I'd really highly suggest you submit work now!
