Wednesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 25 May 2011 8:09 AM

Today in the roundup: Follow the Cliburn amateur competition from your desk, plus the DMA sets up a show and hands out some cash.


FOLLOW ALONG: Are you stuck at your desk this week when you’d rather be at the Sixth International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs? Well if you’ve got one of those setups where no one can see your computer screen when they walk by, you might be in luck. Pop in those earbuds and watch the live webcast of the competition on the Cliburn Foundation’s website. And between performances, be sure to check out the blog. The post about how this crazy weather affects the piano is particularly interesting.

HEAVY LIFTING: On Sunday, the Dallas Museum of Art opens “Silence and Time,” a multimedia exhibition of contemporary artists, “who have addressed issues of absence, presence, and temporality.” One piece of the show is Bojan Šarčević’s 1.7 ton sculpture She. Just how do you go about installing a piece that heavy? The museum’s Uncrated Blog takes you through the process in pictures.

THEY’RE IN THE MONEY: In other DMA news, the museum announced the 2011 Awards for Artists. Four artists earned the Clare Hart DeGolyer Memorial Fund Award for artists 15-25 years old. The Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Fund Award, which honors Texas residents under 30, was given out to three recipients. And two artists will be doing some traveling thanks to the Otis and Velma Davis Dozier Travel Grant. Learn more about the winners here.
