Burning Man Jumping

Lara Everly from Los Angeles was so taken by all of the awesome artwork she saw at Burning Man, she just had to jump as high as she could. Geeze, she is practically flying! Thanks for the submission, Lara.

Sin Jumping!

Thanks to Mary Guilliams from Los Angeles for sending me these Art Jumps. Mary is Jumping for Ed Ruscha's Sin, at the Broad Contemporary Art Museum in Los Angeles. We're all sinners- maybe someday we can all be Art Jumpers too :) Thanks so much, Mary!

Baltimore Contemporary Museum jumping circa 1999

Thanks to Kelly C. of Long Beach, CA for sending me this photo. It was taken in 1999 at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore. She was jumping for a variety of artists (including Kara Walker) but mostly, she was jumping to celebrate getting her first museum job. Art Jumping back in 1999? How very progressive you are, Kelly!

Get Ready...

... because Caroline Giegerich and friends are at it again. Prepare to be AMAZED!

So obviously, the following people are probably the world's hardest working Art Jumpers:

Kelly Browne, Ashmi Dang, Caroline Giegerich, Joolee Lee, Crystal Park, Sarah Petroski, Shannon Roop, Merrily Rees, Cynthia Singiser and the random Security Guard. Additional thanks is given to Martha Rivera & Leon.

They jumped for the work of Ryan McGuines and Olafur Eliasson at P.S 1 and for other various graffiti artists at 5 points, NYC.

Please visit Caroline's Art Jumping photo set on Flickr. Also, please check out her blog, the Daily Marauder.

Thank you so much for believing in Art Jumping, Caroline!
