Art Assignment: Off

I love the new Art Assignment. You know The Art Assignment, right?

The Art Assignment is a weekly video series produced by PBS Digital Studios, hosted by curator Sarah Urist Green and author/vlogger John Green. We take you around the U.S. to meet artists and solicit assignments from them that we can all complete. Watch our videos and then post your responses with #theartassignment.

The most current assignment is called Off. You can watch the excellent video introducing the assignment here. You'll also learn a bit of art history, meet a cool artist, get inspired to think about things differently and see John and Sarah Green in the snow.

I hope you'll watch the video to get the whole concept behind the assignment otherwise you won't really get it, but here's my contribution.

Pink blooms, leaves, sky.

Front door with forsythia wreath.

Lantern and tin bird.

Studio table and design wall.

I am most inspired by what Lauren Zoll had to say about being off. Feeling off. Turning off.

"When something is off, it can still have the potential to be productive, to do something different. When you're off, other ideas might come to you... and those are important moments to have."
