ive American art museums and the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) will mount a nationwide public art exhibition this summer.

'Hudson Yards' is the biggest development for NYC since the new Columbus Circle (Time Warner Center).
What makes an infographic successful? As designers, we want it to achieve a balance of two main things: Did the reader get the message we wanted them to get?
...To the surprise of the researchers, bar graphs and charts did poorly. It turns out (news flash) they all kinda look the same. The most memorable images contained “human recognizable objects.” Think mundane stuff like photos or illustrations of bottles, animals and shoes, not to mention people.
Other important points:
Color made a huge difference: the more, the better.Images with more clutter were highly memorable. How much more memorable? A lot.Images with lots of circles and rounded corner graphics also ranked high.
Infographics, the chart of the digital age.
Intriguing study of what makes infographics work.
Research worth noting for content, marketing, PR and design pros.
I love Infographics and agree with everything I've read here.

"Quixote Village grew from the vision of a self-governing tent camp of homeless adults in Olympia, Washington. The Village consists of 30 tiny cottages, a large vegetable garden and a community building that contains showers, laundry facilities, a communal kitchen and living and dining space. Village residents moved from Camp Quixote to the Village on Christmas Eve, 2013."
A novel solution to homelessness. What was once a tent village now has 30 permanent tiny houses and a community building. It was funded by the Panza non-profit organization.
I am completely fascinated by Quixote Village. It was a tent village for homeless people. It has been transformed. Whit the use of tiny houses combined with a community building, Quixote Village is now a home for the residents who have roofs over their heads. It is a place to really call home. "The Village is supported by Panza, a non-profit organization that grew out of the many faith communities that hosted and sustained Camp Quixote during its 6+ years of existence."
Easter is Sunday so there's still time to try egg decorating. Here are some tips for first-timers and the experienced.
Aren't these beautiful, traditional looking decorated Easter eggs? The tradition of decorating eggs and the symbolism pre-dates Christianity. It is fascinating. Read a bit about it here.
Foodini is a 3D printer for foodstuffs. Its Florida-based makers are hoping their time-saving device becomes as ubiquitous on kitchen countertops as the microwave oven has become but also gets more people cooking with fresh ingredients, rather than...

Catherine Losing and Anna Lomax's photo series Cuban Shop Windows places lowly products on a pedestal
Clever art made with inexpensive products. Branding does not require great expense. I just requires 'outside the box' creativity.
A clever and well designed guide created on StumbleUpon.
For his photo series, “Head Shots” 34-year-old Jon Burgerman appears bloody and defeated in front of the gun-toting movie stars who are plastered onto posters in New York’s subway system.
Gotcha! Just kidding but all this violence is not something to take lightly.

Share/Bookmark You may remember well our past article on Toothache Home Remedies, but because this is such a common dental ailment among people, we thought we should make a better visual representation of what you can do to relieve a toothache.
There is nothing like a well designed Infographic to bring home a reminder of how to deal with a toothache.

Wonderful. I am a color enthusiast.

As far as I am concerned, this is edible art!

A fascinating article about the study of the 'neuroscience' of color.
Fascinating article on the study of color from a scientific perspective. See my replies to the comments and please let me know what you think.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week announced plans for a $65 million renovation for Jones Beach State Park, which celebrates its 85th anniversary this year.
Had it not been for the controversial NYS demagogue, Robert Moses, Jones Beach may never have come to exist. It would just be another group of beachside communities that got pummeled by Hurricane Sandy.

We live in a studio apartment that is about 4 times the size of a tiny home. It is very cramped. I do not see how more than one person who has plenty of room outside to stretch can live comfortably in a Tiny Home.
"Vasso’s life has become a nightmare. She has lost the ability to do the one thing she loves: paint. A severe form of Multiple Sclerosis stiffens her joints and makes it impossible for her to hold a brush. The Long Island native fights against cramps and pain to express herself. But she is haunted and paralyzed as well by a dark and violent past. It is only when a local gallery owner becomes interested in her work that she finds hope". (39 minutes, profanity)
A story of both shock and amazement. I want very much to see this documentary.

Most of the time, discussions revolving around the divine genre of condiments known as hot sauce are passionate, divisive and potentially dangerous. Some hearts beat for the sweet and garlicky taste of Sriracha, while others would sacrifice their lives for the South of the Border kick of Tapatio. Then there are the Tabasco lovers but, come on, their opinions are not valid.
I like the art but not the sauce.
Mapmaker Max Roberts ditches New Yorks linear grid for concentric circles in this new subway map.
A choice of subway map for the left brain and the right brain individual or the literal or the intuitive. Great idea.
