Christie’s Photographs from the Museum of Modern Art

Moments in Time By Leticia Marie Sanchez Photography has become an inescapable part of our daily experience. One cannot sit in a restaurant without seeing someone snapping a photo of their spring rolls, their Tinder date, or even themselves. A few weeks ago on the Pacific Coast Highway, on a particularly crowded weekend, the man in the lane next to me took a selfie while stuck in traffic. Hopefully, police will soon be ticketing drivers for the 2017 version of DUIs: Driving under the Influence of Instagram. For better or worse, photography is now ubiquitous. But at one point in America history, photography was not pervasive. In fact, as a medium it was breaking new ground in order to be recognized as an elevated genre worthy of hanging on museum walls.

In the news: Jackson Pollock painting found in garage?!

A man apparently found a painting allegedly done by Jackson Pollock in his garage. When the Arizona man called an auctioneer to appraise a signed Laker poster valued at $300, the auctioneer stumbled upon a painting possibly worth 15 million. The tale and provenance involve a New York Socialite, a Scottsdale garage, and a tenacious art appraiser. It seems as though the Laker fan may have found himself a real slam dunk. For the news story, please read CNN’s coverage here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/12/us/lost-jackson-pollock-painting-garage-trnd/index.html

Review: Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Taking a Trip Figuratively Speaking! By Leticia Marie Sanchez Despite the Seismic retrofitting currently taking place at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, this gem of a museum is well worth a visit due to the strength of its permanent collection and its innovative, thought-provoking exhibitions. The master works in the vividly curated permanent collection include masters like Maillol, Monet, Degas, Chagall, and Picasso. Auguste Rodin’s “The Walking Man” greets visitors as they enter the museum through the Ludington Court. Aristide Maillol; Bather Putting Up Her Hair; 1930; Sculpture; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Bequest of Wright Ludington  One not-to-be missed work is Christian Marclay’s Video Installation “Telephones.” This riveting 7-minute work reveals the hopes, fears, and drama behind the incessant ring of a telephone. Drawn from more than a 100 films, this work, produced in 1995, includes images of actors ranging from Humphrey Bogart and
