Art Jumping from the ATL!

Thanks to Catherine and Lauren Lee, art lovers and twins, for sending me these amazing Art Jumping photos!

They had this to say about DC Museums:"We are from North Potomac, MD, but are now happily settled in Decatur, GA (about 5 miles east of Atlanta), but we miss our home... and especially the free art museums on the Mall! I would love to Jump at the Hirshhorn!" Right on, ladies- The Hirshhorn is awesome!

In the top pic we have Lauren Art Jumping for a Painting by Jeremy Ray Chance. Next is Catherine jumping for a Mural/Installation by Sarah Emerson, titled The Possibility of Framing Infinity. Both photos were taken at the Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College.

Catherine and Lauren have a fantastic blog about fashion, design, food and art. I suggest you take a peek! Thanks again, ladies :)

Some Boston University MFA Students @ Robert Steele Gallery

Robert Steele Gallery is currently showing some work by Boston University MFA students. Veteran Art Jumper, Karen Myers, has the best paintings in the show (my opinion isn't biased or anything!) The opening was SO FUN, and of course, we Art Jumped all over that place. The show closes today, so if you are in the NYC area, I suggest you go and see it...

First we have American University MFA student, Kate Gartrell jumping for the work of her friend Monique Brideau. Next is Karen Myers, Mackenzie Klump and Dre Bergart jumping for their BU MFA colleuges... Oh, and some dude who I forgot his name who tried levitating or something. Nice try :) Lastly, myself jumping for one of Karen's paintings and a sculpture by Mackenzie Klump.

Congrats to all of the artists featured in the show:

Nina Bellucci
Monique Brideau
Michelle Dennis
Michael Garguilo
Mackenzie Klump
Elizabeth Menges
Karen Ann Myers
Nina Walicki

Richard Anuszkiwicz Jumping (because Frida was off limits)

Tenley Barna and Dani Lee (the blur) from Oakton, VA are jumping for Richard Anuszkiwicz’s piece titled Knowledge and Disappearance. They were at the Philadelphia Museum of Art visiting the Frida exhibit. Tenley said that they would have loved to have jumped for Frida, but they would have either accidentally kicked someone in the face or been kicked out by the museum folks. Haha...

Thank you for the submission, Tenley!
