J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resour

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.
Craft, design, and artistry as applied to the most delicious and sinful of the culinary disciplines rises forth as we shine warming a light on this small but incredibly skilled serving of artists within the deviantART community. In an effort to taste all of the communities within deviantART, let
Collection: MasksCollection: Masks in Art Features More Like This
Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi

Giallo is Italian for yellow… and Horror
In the wake of the real life horrors meted out on Italians during World War II, brutalized by Mussolini and then by Nazi occupation and then having their country used as one great battleground chessboard between Nazis and the invading U.S. and Allied forces, there was for a long time little appetite for horror in movies. It wasn’t until 1956 that the first genuine horror film (a vampire story) was produced and released. It bombed, soundly rejected by the public. The film would be of little note

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

Urbex - ChurchesA collection of truly amazing photographs emerged this month from a group of Photographers who refer to themselves as 'Urbex Central.' In 2011, Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand, was devestated by an earthquake. Tourists can line up outside and peer in at the destruction that the quake caused, but nobody had, until recently, ventured in. The photos show us scenes that most people will never see in their lifetime..and it's quite eerie. The group also ventured into other buildings in the area and shared the photos on their website.

"Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints." - Urban Explorers Creed
Sometimes it's easy to forget the things around us that were once iconic and useful. In everyday life that could include a multitude of household objects, bits and bobs, clothes, gadgets - all sorts. But in Photography - a specific aspect of Photography - people close doors and board up buildings sometimes with little or no notice. They erect a fence around that old asylum and ship everything out or they install security guards at the boundaries of an army camp. Those places get forgotten and one day there will be nobody left that will remember them. That's where Urban Exploration comes in.
I'm not telling you to go out and scale the wall of your nearest derelict hospital in the name of photography. It takes a certain kind of person (and agility!) to do that anyway, but there are many depths to U

I meant to get a shot for this article but haven't got around to it. It's not quite Urbex, but a new hotel is being built near my work and the first thing they constructed, literally out of thin air, was the elevator shaft thingy. It's not even being used as an elevator, it's just the 'skin', the template sort of thing. It's bizarre to see that before a building is even created. So anyway, this months Urbex theme is Elevators. Creepy enough when they aren't abandoned, this collection of deserted 'lifts' is quite bizarre....

Probably some of the most eery kind of urbex photographs are that depicting Abandoned homes. I recently went to visit the offices in a village that I work in, that houses many people with disabilities. Most of them live individually in their own homes, but there is a huge complex tucked out the back that used to house lots and lots of individual peoples rooms. One day the building was condemned, and everybody just upped and left as it was. The tables are still set, the bedrooms are still full - it's quite bizarre. I will soon persuade them to let me in and take some photos! Anyway, enjoy some of the abandoned homes here on deviantART...
UrbexUrban Explorers are likely to find absolutely anything when they venture into abandoned places. Read about what this photographer found when he ventured into an abandoned Sugar Mill... It's also nice to read about how places have been rescued from becoming abandoned and lost to history, like this New York lighthouse which people are working hard to restore and make into a B & B!Urbex in Art Features More Like This
Hotels can be fairly daunting at the best of times, especially some of those old ones and at night. But I think that these urban exploration captures of abandoned hotels and hotel rooms are actually quite beautiful in their own strange way...

After what seemed like hours of searching you come across a door. The scream comes again, clearly coming from the other side of the door. you are not sure if you should open it or not. What will you do?RP starter in Personal More Like This
