From February 26 to June 11, you can see a major retrospective of Cindy Sherman’s work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Contemporary artist Cindy Sherman, who is both model, stylist, makeup artist, and photographer in her shoots,  will show more than 170 images spanning 3 decades. This show will also feature some films, from MoMA’s own collection, chosen by Sherman to accompany her retrospective. This is an event you will not want to miss! For a virtual tour of what you will see at the event, click HERE.


Jesse Newman describes himself as a visual effect artist; the images he creates have a complexity rarely seen. For years, he has now been working on a project of epic proportions. The Rebirth of Gaea is his ode to Greek mythology, the environment, and his daughter. The final image is comprised of thousands of images and represents hours of manipulations in post-production. Click here to watch a video that gives us a glimpse of the insane amount of work involved (and remember that this image represents only a small fraction of the overall image!).

From March 22 to 25, 2012, The Rebirth of Gaea will be unveiled at the International Art Expo in New York City. More information on this amazing project can be found on his website: jessenewman.com
