Mexico City's Water Garden Museum and Diego Rivera Murals (Museo Jardin del Agua & Carcamo de Dolores)
Beyond the promise of Diego Rivera murals, I couldn't find much info on Mexico City's Water Garden Museum when deciding whether or not to visit. I'm so glad I took the chance, though, because it's a gem that doesn't get high enough billing in lists of Mexico City attractions. First...

Weekend Wanderlust (vol 56)

What are you up to to this weekend? I'm recovering from foot surgery and taking it easy this month, watching lots of terrible television and remaining blissfully ignorant of the dropping temperatures outside. (I kind of don't want to admit it, but I haven't left the apartment in almost...
Chief Leatherlips Sculpture I've been meaning to write a post about this quirky monument in Dublin, Ohio for some time now--fortunately my new camera has given me an excuse to run around photographing just about everything.

Really, really fantastic graphic design from Type Hike's national parks collaboration! 59 designers are contributing a take on their favorite national park. The designs are available on posters, pins, and postcards, with 100% of the proceeds going to the National Park's Centennial Campaign. I'm dying to pick up the Grand...
I just stumbled across these state flower paintings by Etsy shop Tigersheep Friends. Aren't they great? Artist Sarah Walsh doesn't have all the states yet, but maybe you could persuade her your home state should be the next to be painted. There's no Ohio print right now (we're the scarlet...
Newly listed on Airbnb: a life-size replica of Van Gogh's painting The Bedroom. Set in Chicago's River North neighborhood (near Navy Pier!), the rental is actually a promotion for the Art Institute of Chicago's exhibition of all three paintings in Van Gogh's bedroom series. The room looks stunning and...
