I Wish.

Digital Cameras Fun
Maybe someday art jumping will be this important! I created this picture at Art jumping must be too progressive for the folks over at dumpr- not one of the default photos showed the museum-goers jumping! Ha...

Okay, so the real photo within this photo is me jumping for a piece by Andrew Liang. This piece (didn't see a title) was one of many on display in Xeroxable Wall Patterns at Area 405 in Baltimore. I think she show closed, otherwise I'd advise you to go see it.

Josiah McElheny Jumping!

Another awesome art jumping photo comes to us from Karen Ann Myers. She is jumping for the work of Josiah McElheny at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. Thanks for the submission, Karen!

Mean Security Guards!

Kristi Redick and Lesley Stanley took these jumping pics outside of the Museum of Contemperary Art in Chicago. They didn't art jump inside of the museum because they "didn't want to risk it. The security guards looked old and mean."

I certainly understand, ladies. It can be quite embarrassing to get kicked out of a museum.

Kristi and Lesley are jumping for Thomas Schutte's Ganz Grosse Geister (Big Spirits XL)

AU MFA Field Trip Jumping!

Lots of fun was has this past weekend in Baltimore. The American University first year MFA students art jumped all over the city. In this picture (left to right), Kate Gartrell, Lana Stephens, Nikki Painter and Zac Willis jump for a work by an artist dear to our hearts, Zoe Charlton. Zoe's drawing (unfortunately not visible in this photo) was showing in Quintessence, a show at Paperwork Gallery. Check out the Paperwork Gallery blog here. If you're in the Baltimore area, you should really check them out!

Zac = Holy Crap!

HOLY CRAP! Zac Willis' art jumping is some of the best I've seen yet. Perhaps he had a previous life as a cheerleader? Zac is a studio art MFA student at American University and is jumping for his own artwork on display at the Katzen Arts Center in Washington, DC. Way to go Zac and thanks for the submission!

Heart These Ladies in Chicago!

*SHOUT OUT* to these dedicated jumpers in Chicago! Allison Cronin keeps it real while jumping for a Charles Darwin quote at the Field Museum. Also, a special welcome to Lesley Stanley. Lesley could barely contain her excitement as she battles the cold and jumps before she even enters! Way to go girls. Now, what do I have to do to get you to jump in an actual art museum?!
