HIDE AND GO SEEK: The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth blog has held a fun contest for the past few weeks. Each week, a set of clues describing a work in the museum is posted. Readers are then encouraged to take a guess as to which work is being described and e-mail their pick to the site. Get it right and you’ll receive a pair of tickets to the museum.
This week’s post seems fairly easy compared with earlier ones: “I have 25 identities but each one is in the same five colors (and black); I am iconic and infamous and I am the epitome of celebrity. Find me, and I will consider singing Happy Birthday to you.”
MORE DAVE BRUBECK: Did you make it out to either of the recent Dave Brubeck concerts up at the University of North Texas? Pegasus Music attended Thursday night and talked to some of the participants, who all seemed pretty thrilled by sharing a room with the jazz legend. In related news: a trio of videos has surfaced of a 1956 television performance showing Brubeck at the top of his game. Take a look and you’ll understand what all the gushing was about when he was in town.
QUOTABLE: “When you think of monumental public art, more often than not it’s sculpture. People tend to think more of painting as private and sculpture as public. There are, of course, any number of exceptions, so it’s not a hard and fast rule. One of the great things the Nasher does is get people to focus on sculpture, to stop and pay attention to it.”
